  • 1 cauliflower – either a fresh head, or a bag of frozen florets
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g cheese of some sort – I prefer Leicester, but….
  • 1 onion, finely chopped.
  • Breadcrumbs, soft – about 2 slices or more, well blitzed
  • Seasoning – perhaps even a little cayenne pepper….
  • Oil (not 3-in-1, sewing machine or engine)
  • Perhaps some light soured cream, just to be a little indulgent…
  • Frying pan


  • Cut the cauliflower into florets and cook in boiling water until tender, probably about 10 minutes
  • Drain well and mash the cauliflower while it is still warm
  • Grate the cheese, chop the onion, (tote that barge; lift that bale; get a little drunk and…. Y’know the song!)
  • Stir in the cheese, eggs, onions, bread crumbs & salt to taste….this is where you can add a bit of cayenne….
  • Oil your frying pan and pop it over a medium to high heat
  • Make the cauliflower mixture into balls, then burger shapes; thick and round, whatever size you wish – make one big one if you wish, but it’ll be a bugger to turn over!
  • Fry until the mixture is properly set, lovely and golden brown on each side, perhaps about 3 minutes per side, maybe more
  • Plate up. Tuck in.  Enjoy with some light sour cream!
