Meatless Monday: Cauliflower Cheesy Bread

Super Bowl 50 is this weekend and today’s recipe may be my favorite that I am going to suggest to you.  In college, one of my favorite foods to order was cheesy bread from Cottage Inn and I have yet to find a place that makes it quite as good.  But, today’s recipe comes pretty darn close.  Instead of bread, I am using cauliflower.  Smother it with cheese, and you can hardly taste the difference!  

1 head of cauliflower or 4 cups cauliflower florets

1 Large Egg

1/2 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

3/4 Cup Shredded Mexican Cheese 

1 TSP Italian Seasoning

1/2 TSP Salt, Pepper, and Garlic Salt

Cooking Spray

Marinara Sauce to dip

Ranch to dip

Preheat oven to 375

Rinse cauliflower, remove outer leaves, and break or cut into florets if using whole cauliflower

Place florets in food processor and process until “rice” texture

Place “rice” in a microwave safe dish with a lid and microwave for 8 minutes

Remove from oven and let cool until 

Place cauliflower rice in a clean kitchen towel 

Over the sink, squeeze all excess liquid out of cauliflower–you want the cauliflower as dry as possible!
