CAULIFLOWER CRUSTED GRILLED CHEESE

IMG_6890.jpg

I was a little leary about trying this recipe.  I mean really, how much can cauliflower taste like bread for a grilled cheese sandwich?

Well first, I had to stop thinking about the cauliflower tasting like bread.  That was not going to happen.  Of course not, it is after all a vegetable but as long as I could fool myself into thinking it was this cauliflower cheese sandwich and make it look like bread it just might be good.  After All I loved cheese and cauliflower, riced cauliflower and anything fried.  I made it and it was delicious, loved it.  As a matter of fact I will make it for lunch again today.

RECIPE

1 medium head of cauliflower (raw), cut into small florets and stem removed (riced)

1 large egg

1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

1 tsp Italian herb seasoning (opt.)

2 thick slices of any kind of cheddar cheese (even shredded cheddar cheese)\

1 mashed avocado (opt.)

PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 450F.

 

I like to purchase the cauliflower that is already riced but you can purchase a whole cauliflower and put it in your processor and rice it yourself.

Place cauliflower into large microwave safe bowl and microwave for 2 minutes. Your cauliflower should be soft and tender.  Give  it a good mix and place back in the microwave for 3 minutes.  Remove and stir again this helps the cauliflower cook more evenly for about 5 minutes.  Sometimes I get lazy and just let it cook until it a little soft and just add the other ingredients.  Cool.  Squeeze all the water out.

Add the egg and cheese, seasonings, mixing well.

Divide cauliflower into 2, place 1 onto lined baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper and form a flat rectangular or square shape with it.  Repeat with the second piece.  Bake for approx. 15 minutes or until golden.

Place cheese, avocado on one slice of the cauliflower along with another slice of  cheese on top of the avocado.  The avocado is totally optional and have made this sandwich without it and it is delicious.

I then place the sandwich onto a fry pan and toast it on both sides until the cheese melts.  You can also place it back into the oven and accomplish the same results, by melting the cheese.
