Lots of company planned over the next couple of weeks so in true foodie frenzy, my freezers have to be filled with prepped food for any eventuality that may arise. What can I say - this is my obsession. But then you understand this don't you. You're the same as I am - cookbooks all over the livingroom, grocery list on the fridge so you don't forget anything, the good silverware is getting polished (who ever invented silver in the first place) and just general Giz type chaos. I'm sure Psychgrad can attest to this. You know that old expression - we become our mothers - enough said.
Today I stopped in to my local market to find HUGE heads of cauliflower at $1.00/head. It's not even part of my vocabulary to say no to a good find like this. I decided to make cauliflower pancakes to serve as a side to at least one of the meals for guests.
1 medium to large head of cauliflower
3 large eggs
1/2 cup bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil
Cut the cauliflower florets and boil in water until tender
While still warm, mash the florets. Add eggs, bread crumbs, salt and pepper
Shape the cauliflower into smallish pancakes and fry in olive oil on medium heat.
These freeze well and can be warmed up in the oven at 300 F for about 15 minutes.
If you're into easy and tasty - this is it. You can also use broccoli or a combination of broccoli and cauliflower.
