Bangers and ... Mash???

So we all know the hubs makes sausages, and he makes the best bangers! Out of this world!

Instead of doing potato with it, as usual, I opted to try a recipe I found on Pintrest for Cheesy Cauliflower Cakes, they looked easy enough and delicious so I thought I'd try them out. Oh heavens! YUMMY!!! They were truly easy to make and really quite tasty! I can't wait to make these again. They were a great alternative to mashed potatoes or potato pancakes.

The best part of these little buggers was that they were incredible leftover the next day warmed up a bit and placed on a salad with some chicken pieces and veggies. SO good on the salad (and a little ranch dressing doesn't hurt!)

Cheesy Cauliflower Pancakes

1 head cauliflower
2 large eggs
1/2 c cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 c panko
1/2 t cayenne pepper (more of less to taste)
salt & pepper
I used canola oil here instead of olive oil to eliminate burn factor.

Cut cauliflower into florets & cook in boiling water until tender about 10 minutes. Drain. Mash the cauliflower while still warm. Stir cheese, eggs, panko, cayenne & salt to taste.

Coat the bottom of a griddle or skillet with olive oil over medium-high heat. Form the cauliflower mixture into patties about 3 inches across. Cook until golden brown & set, about 3 minutes per side. Keep each batch warm in the oven while you cook the rest.

On a side note, my head of cauliflower was so big, I got so many of these little buggers!
