Low Carb Cheesy Broccoli/ Cauliflower bites

I'm always looking for new ways to jazz up our vegetables and I have to say, this one was a good choice. It's a delicious, easy, low carb option.

They went over quite well here. I'm pretty sure I got a thumbs up from everyone at the table.

The recipe is wicked easy:

  • 1 c broccoli (chopped)
  • 1 1/2 c cauliflower ( chopped)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 shot of Franks Red Hot Sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup almond meal
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place the broccoli and cauliflower in a  pan with water and boil until soft. Drain.
  3. Meanwhile, in another large bowl, whisk together the eggs, salt, garlic powder, oregano, black pepper, cayenne and hot sauce. Add the cheddar cheese and the almond meal, then add the  drained broccoli and cauliflower to the mix. Use a large spoon to mix everything together well.
  4. Use your hands to form into small patties. Arrange the patties on the prepared baking sheets.  Bake 15 minutes on each side, until browned. Allow to cool a couple of minutes, then serve.
Mine got a little crispy around the edges as you can see in the photo.
I may even chop up some onions to add next time to give them an extra kick.
