  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the cauliflower and cook until tender, 5 to 10 minutes; drain and break cauliflower into small pieces. Combine cauliflower, bacon, and green onions together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Sift flour into a bowl. Whisk milk, egg, Parmesan cheese, and a pinch of salt into the flour until smooth. Add milk mixture to cauliflower mixture and stir until batter is evenly combined.
  3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until golden brown on one side, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes more. Repeat with remaining batter.

These were quite good. Full disclosure, I didn't stick to the recipe exactly as far as the cooking method, but I did stick to the ingredients list other than subbing garlic salt for regular salt. Rather than adding milk (I left it out) and pan-frying, I upped the parmesan to 1/4 C and ran all of the ingredients through the food processor. I spooned the mixture onto a greased baking sheet and flattened into nugget-like shapes. I baked for 15 minutes at 350 and then flipped the nuggets and baked for an additional 15 minutes before serving with a dipping sauce made of sour cream (the bacon and green onion flavors reminded me of a baked potato!), sriracha, black pepper, and a tiny bit of lemon juice. Delicious!

I tried this recipe. Only thing I did different was to add some grated zucchini and left out the bacon. I squeezed out the moisture from the zucchini before adding. I was not impressed with flavor of this fritter. I had even added more Parmesan cheese. It turned out to be more of a pancake with veggies in it than a fritter.

These are great! I added garlic powder and more Parmesan cheese. I dipped them in a lot of condiments but found they taste good with Ranch dressing mixed with a little bit of soy sauce! Delicious!

Very yummy!! Because I didn't have any milk, I used water instead, and they still turned out fine. They're potato pancakes with cauliflower instead, so good.

Wonderful, should have made a double batch. At first I thought this is going to be a mess. After frying one and having a bite, away I went. My wife even had a warm up for breakfast, not as good as fresh but good. I would not change anything, just great the way they are. Thank You Momof2 W&M Nakusp, B.C.
