Cauliflower cheese grills


I love cauliflower. It kind of absorbs the flavour of anything around it and goes with anything. On busy days, when I’ve had no time or energy to think about dinner, Dex loves these cauliflower cheese grills from the freezer section at Tesco. There is a special place reserved for them in my freezer (is it too dramatic to say and my heart?) And there will be for the foreseeable future I imagine.

But because he loves them so much and because this was a day where I had a bit of time and energy, I thought I’d recreate a more veggie dense, homemade version.

These babies took around 20 minutes to make and this recipe makes around 12 little grills.

You will need:

3/4 cup of grated potato (I used 1/2 and 1/2 sweet potato and regular but whatever floats your boat).

1/4 cup grated cheese

1/2 cup finely chopped or grated cauliflower

2 eggs


Basically combine everything in a bowl and divide equally between a well greased muffin tray. Add a bit more cheese if you like.

Bake at 170°c fan for around 20 minutes or until golden and crispy.

These store in an airtight container for a few days, alternatively you could freeze for another day.

There you have it. Quick and easy and a bit healthier than the shop bought version. Winner.


Like this? Why not try…

  1. I’m really tempted to give these a try with my little ones – they’re quite different to traditional cauliflower cheese and I might just get away with it! Thanks for linking up with #CookBlogShare xxx


  2. What a lovely idea! I haven’t seen them in the supermarket but it’s great you can make your own as well. I’m thinking of trying them with my children too.


  3. My baby is allergic to egg- i wonder if there is some other way to make these? the egg keeps everything together- but maybe the cheese will melt and do that too?
