Cauliflower Waffles

The name might throw you off, but I have never eaten these for breakfast. You could, and it would probably be awesome, but I use these more as a side dish. Think of them like fritters, and you could make them look like fritters too if you don't have a waffle maker. They are incredibly light and the kids think they're getting something special. Little do they know, I'm just really good at tricking them. Muah-hahahahaha!

What do you serve these with? Never had fritters before so I'm having a hard time figuring out how to make it a whole meal I could serve for dinner. Thanks!

Hi Keri! I usually pair these with grilled chicken or burgers. They aren't quite the texture of french fries, but I treat them that way. They are more soft like a bread or waffle. They would also be great paired with a salad, or even on top of a salad. I have yet to try it that way.... my kids still struggle with eating an adventurous salad. Hope that helps and thanks for commenting!
