Makes about 3 - 4 sandwiches

Carbs per serve 3.5 grams

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 small head cauliflower, (to make about 4 cups processed cauliflower)
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar

METHOD

  1. Cut cauliflower into florets. Process cauliflower florets in a food processor until the texture resembles rice. Alternatively, you can grate the cauliflower.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine processed cauliflower, eggs, Parmesan and oregano. Mix until evenly combined then season with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray then scoop the cauliflower mixture into a small patty on one side of the pan. Repeat to form a second patty on the other side. (These are your “bread” slices.) Press down on both pieces with a spatula and cook until golden underneath, about 5 minutes. Flip and cook until the other sides are golden, about 3 minutes more.
  4. Top one cauliflower slice with cheese then place the other cauliflower slice on top. Cook until the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes more per side. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
