Cauliflower fritters are a fabulous keto side dish for any meal. Add a little cheddar and some finely diced ham for a punch of flavor, or leave them plain. It's a great recipe to customize and make your own!
Chop the cauliflower into 1 inch florets. Add to a food processor or high-powered blender (if using a blender, add a cup or two of water). Process until finely chopped (drain if using a blender with water).
Place in a microwave safe bowl and cover with a large plate. Microwave on high for 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can cook in a pan over medium heat until very tender.
Set a tea towel into a sieve and drain the cauliflower through the tea towel. Let sit until cool enough to handle and then gather the ends of the tea towel together and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
Transfer the cauliflower to a large bowl and add the eggs, cheese, ham, almond flour, garlic, sage, salt and pepper. Stir well to combine.
Line a platter with parchment or waxed paper. Using 2 tablespoons of the mixture at a time, form into small patties about 3 inches in diameter and ½ inch thick. You should get 16 patties. Refrigerate 1 hour to firm up.
Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. When the oil is hot, add some of the cauliflower patties, taking care not to crowd the pan.
Cook 3 to 4 minutes, until nicely browned on the browned on the bottom. Then wiggle a thin-bladed spatula underneath and carefully flip. Press down firmly with the spatula and cook another 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove to a paper towel lined plate and repeat with the remaining patties. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.
