Baked Cauliflower Tots — Most Popular Pin of the Week

Instead of potatoes, these made-over tots feature a cauliflower filling, though they boast the signature craved crunch of the classic recipe, thanks to a coating of crispy cereal.

While traditional Tater Tots are filled with (what else?) taters and laden in a greasy fried coating, this week's Most Popular Pin of the Week swaps out potatoes in favor of a lighter filling: cauliflower. By pureeing the vegetable with sauteed onions and a binding mixture, you can form it into two-bite tots. The beauty of this made-over recipe is that even though these snacks are baked, not fried, they don't lose any of that craveworthy crunch, thanks to a quick dredge in rice cereal before cooking.
