How To Make Them
These patties couldn’t be any easier to work with. The secret is to really work at getting all the moisture out of the cauliflower. You can use a paper towel, tea towel, cheesecloth, etc.
Squeeze that baby good and get every last drop of water out. This is key to ensuring that these cauliflower hashbrown patties hold together. Otherwise you’ll end up with a soggy mess.
Then, you’ll simply mix all the ingredients together and form them into patties. They will be soft and you’ll be questioning the recipe but they do hold up when they’re fully baked.
Serve these potato free hash browns with your eggs, pancakes, or as a treat in the day (I totally did this). I liked them with a little bit of Valentina Hot Sauce, the kids preferred it with ketchup.
Store in an airtight container (I like these ones) in the fridge for 3-4 days.
You can reheat these in the microwave, but they will be softer and could fall apart. If you would like them to hold their original shape, reheat them in the oven or on a frying pan.
Yes, they can be stored in the freezer for a month. I recommend flash freezing them.
Place the hashbrowns on a baking sheet and freeze. Then remove them, place them in a resealable bag, and place them back in the freezer. This prevents them from sticking together.
The baked cauliflower hashbrown patties are not crispy, but they do hold their shape and can be picked up. If yours are crumbling, try cooking for a little longer and let cool completely.If you want them to be crispy, try baking them for longer, or cooking them in an air fryer.
