RECIPE: Cauliflower Fritters

These cheesy cauliflower fritters were an instant hit with our family.  Master 8 blitz the cauliflower and instantly said he would not eat them due to the disgusting smell.  I nearly fell over when I gave him some to try and he said they were lovely!  This recipe comes from Create Bake Make and I found it on Pinterest.  See if they’re a hit in your family as well.
