    ¼ teaspoon pepper

    2 eggs, beaten

    1 cup bread crumbs


    1. Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.

    2. In a bowl, mash the cauliflower until slightly combined.

    3. Add the egg, ¾ cup bread crumbs, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and parsley, and mix with a fork until combined.  Chill for 10 minutes.

    4. Form the mixture into nuggets with a cube of cheddar cheese in the center.  Pack them tightly.

    5. Roll each nugget in flour, then egg, then bread crumbs.  Place on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper.

    6. Bake for 18-20 minutes, flipping the nuggets halfway through.  Brush with oil for browner nuggets.

    7. Enjoy!
