After looking the ingredients up....not including the scant amounts for cilantro and paprika.... carbs look like this...on added 5 for garlic...so as to keep it to 5 cloves, and I added 1 for an egg... which I never have counted.... of course this is based on the size of the cauliflower...this is for a medium head.

1 Cauliflower - Chopped to Fine breadcrumbs - net 17
½ Onion - Grated or Chopped - net 4
5-10 Peeled Garlic Cloves - net 5
1 Egg –net 1
10 oz Cheddar Cheese – Grated – net 5
1 tsp Mustard - Dijon is best
Fresh Cilantro - Optional
Shake of Paprika - Optional
Freshly Ground Sea salt and Black Pepper

Well, they were...



terrible! But it was the cook's fault, not the recipe's. I forgot to start the timer when they went into the oven, and then lost track of time. Amazing how much damage an extra 45 minutes can do!



I'll try again after my next grocery shopping excursion.

Ok I made this last night. I was really looking forward to this as so many of my favorite flavors were in it -- fresh cilantro, garlic, cheese, paprika. I had this as a side dish with chicken and didn't really care for it that way. The flavors were too bold and mine turned out a little mushy. But here's what I did with the leftovers. I fried it (the already baked dish) with sausage and eggs and added a few hot peppers and some more cilanto and it wasn't bad at all. It will really fry up nice.

Thanks for posting.

I was soooo hoping for yumminess!!! lol!! Would different spices have worked? Soooo you fried it and then made the eggs and sausage? Like in a little oil or butter?

It was too bold, so you added peppers and more cilantro?

Go ahead and try it like it is -- your tastes might be different than mine. Like most of you I find it really fun to try new low carb dishes. Thanks again to the original poster -- keep the new ideas coming!

It was too bold (for me anyway) as a "stand alone" side dish with fried chicken. The cauliflower taste was a bit strong to me. It also was kind of mushy (unless I did it wrong). Actually as the original poster stated it might be just right as a stuffing for mushrooms -- I might try that.

I figured though that sausage and peppers would accent the flavor which it did. Yes, I usually fry in olive oil or butter (or coconut oil). I just fried it with the eggs and sausage -- be careful not to let it burn.

When I pan fried the dish the next day it made it nice and brown and the sausage especially goes well with the flavors.

Like I said I mixed it with scrambled eggs, more fresh cilantro, Williams low sugar sausage, some hot peppers for zing and an avacado on the side. Made a nice hearty and quite filling breakfast dish.

I made it last night and made some tweaks, Instead of 1 egg, I put 3 eggs in it and instead of 10 out of cheese I put 8 oz in. Everything else went in the same, but i did bake them in a mini muffin pan and they were over cooked in that small of a pan. Less time in the over would have been fine. The rest I made in a normal sized muffin tin and they turned out very good.
