A word from the cook
great as an appetizer or to accompany any dish that you think might need a starch (but not).
Ingredients

1 small Cauliflower
1/2 cup Bacon Bits
1/2 cup Green 0nions
1 Tbsp Hot Sauce (or to taste)
3 Eggs
1 1/2 cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
1/4 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup Gluten Free Bread Crumbs (if G.F. is your choice)
Salt and Pepper (to taste)

Instructions
  1. Cut the cauliflower into small florets.   Place them into a glass bowl with about 1 inch of water in the bottom.   Cover and steam in a microwave on high for about 4 minutes (until softened).   Drain the water off.
  2. Place the cauliflower into a food processor and pulse – until you get a ‘rice like’ texture to the cauliflower.
  3. Add the cauliflower to a large bowl and combine with bacon bits, green onions, hot sauce, eggs, both cheeses, and bread crumbs.    Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Cover this mixture and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  5. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high.   Add 2 tbsp of vegetable oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan.
  6. With your hands, shape about 1/8th of a cup of the mixture into patties, and place into skillet to brown on both sides (about 2 minutes per side)
  7. Serve warm with sour cream and green onion tops as a garnish.
