Mom Lanae's Winning Recipe:

Here's what you will need:

* 1 head of cauliflower

* 1 lemon

* 4 eggs

* 1 cup of AP flour

* 1 cup of goat cheese (plus more for sprinkling)

* 4 tbsp. of olive oil

* 3 tbsp. of honey (plus more for on top)

* 4 chopped garlic cloves

* Sprinkles of salt, pepper, parsley and oregano to season

* Canola or vegetable oil for frying

Here's how to make it:

1. Chop cauliflower and remove all green and core. Put into food processor and pulse approximately 45 seconds-1 minute in a food processor. Make sure it is very fine, almost rice like.

2. Mix your spices into the cauliflower and place in a frying pan. Add 4 tbsp. of olive oil to the pan, one at a time, stirring well in between, as pan is heating on high. Constantly stir the cauliflower mixture for about 10 minutes on high until cauliflower mixture becomes golden brown in color (may need a little less or more time depending on how strong your stove top is).

3. Place cauliflower mixture in a large mixing bowl and add the goat cheese and honey immediately. This will get the cheese starting to melt right into the cauliflower and taste even creamery and better! Add the flour, garlic, and 4 eggs (mixing one thoroughly in at a time).

4. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze out the lemon juice into the bowl, taking out any seeds that sneak in there. Grab a grader and zest 1/2 the lemon over the bowl. Stir thoroughly.

5. In a frying pan, add enough oil to fill up the pan about half way on high. Grab an ice cream scooper and scoop your mixture into the frying pan. Fry each side about 2 minutes. Crumble goat cheese and drizzle honey on top to serve!
