Cauliflower Breadsticks with Cheese

Tara Wright Appetizers, Recipe, Sides 0 Comments

These delicious cauliflower bread-sticks have all the taste of the traditional ones without all the carbs and calories. The egg and cheese inside of the cauliflower work well to hold the crust together. It really doesn’t fall apart unless you skip getting the moisture out!

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Prepare 2 pizza dishes with parchment paper. (This helps soak up a little of the moisture)
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  3. Chop the cauliflower into small pieces and toss into your food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower looks similar to rice (pictured). You may need to scrape down the sides of the food processor a few times.
  4. Microwave in a microwavable container with a lid for 10 minutes. Tip: I used a container that has a steam basket insert with slots in the bottom to allow extra liquid to drain off.
  5. Allow cauliflower mixture to cool for about 7 minutes. Then gather in cheesecloth (or cotton cloth) and squeeze out the extra moisture.
  6. In a large bowl, (or in your food processor again), mix in seasonings, 2 cups mozzerella cheese & eggs. Blend/stir until combined. (You'll still have 2 cups mozzerella left for topping!)
  7. Split the mixture in half and place 1/2 on each baking sheet. Use a spoon or spatula to form into a round/oblong shape.
  8. Bake the crust for 25-30 minutes or until nice and golden. (Without topping).
  9. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for another 10 minutes until cheese has melted.
  10. Remove from oven, slice and serve!
