It's here, folks. The best snack I've had in a really, really long time.  And I have to be completely honest.  I'm not really a snacker.  I mean, I love popcorn and would eat it

Total time

30 minutes




  • 1 small head cauliflower (cut into florets)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped andouille sausage*
  • ¼ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • ½ tsp each coarse salt, onion powder and garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp chopped dill pickles
  • 2 tsp whole grain mustard
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet. Set aside. Place cauliflower florets in the bowl of a food processor and process until finely ground. Place in a glass bowl and microwave 3-4 minutes. Transfer cauliflower to a large kitchen towel and squeeze to drain water. Place back into the glass bowl. Whisk in eggs, cheese, sausage, breadcrumbs, salt, onion powder, garlic powder and black pepper until very well combined. Scoop about 1 tablespoon mixture and roll it into tator tot shape with your hands. Place on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat with remaining mixture and place tots about 2 inches apart. Bake 15-18 minutes, until tots are firm and golden brown. Allow to slightly cool. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together mayo, hot sauce, dill pickles, whole grain mustard and garlic. Serve cauliflower tots with spicy remoulade.
