baked cauliflower nuggets


A delicious way to incorporate some healthy cauliflower into your nutrition.  Fantastic cheesy goodness really.  We make these all the time.  One of my daughter’s favorites.  Yes, I said my daughter.  She’s beyond picky in that her guidelines are that of only consuming yummy foods.  She is a real critic at the ripe ole age of 12!  OOF.

Serve with marinara, ketchup, hot sauce or just on their own.  These nuggets will disappear in minutes.  You might want to double up the recipe.  They warm up great too!

You can also cook them in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil.  About 5-7 minutes per side on medium heat.


  • 1 small head cauliflower
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumb
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 400 F.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Stem and chop your cauliflower into florets.  Cook or steam until just tender.  Strain from water and squeeze out as much of their liquid as humanly possible.  I used bounty paper towels.  Chop up the florets.

In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients.  You may have to add some more breadcrumb if there is still liquid left and they are unmanagable.  Form them into nuggets by pressing them together as much as you can, and place them on the baking sheet.

Bake for 17 minutes.

Yields 4 servings.

…delicious happens
