Recipe: Cheesy No Grain Breadsticks

I’m going to create a new category of NSNG recipes as I find and test them.   I tried this one SuperBowl Sunday and even my kids thought it was pretty good.  It ends up with a soft, bread-y interior, with a crisp outside crust (made of cheese).  Dip it in marinara or eat it with NSNG chili, as we did.  I’ll be using this basic recipe for pizza crust in the future.

1 large head of cauliflower
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups mozzarella, shredded, divided into 2 parts
1 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1-2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp salt

You can use more or less cheese, just experiment with the proportions.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, 400 if a convection oven.  Cut up the cauliflower into medium sized florets and place in a pot with 1″ water in the bottom.  Turn on high and steam the cauliflower for 10 minutes, covered, after the water starts to boil.  Turn out the cauliflower into a colander and drain for a few minutes.  Transfer the cauliflower into a bowl and smash it with a potato masher until it is the size and consistency of rice.

Add the eggs, half the mozzarella, the cheddar, oregano, garlic and salt. Mix thoroughly and turn out onto a large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  The “dough” will be liquidy but shapeable.

Bake for 25 minutes, or until the dough is uniformly golden-brown.  Top with remaining mozzarella and bake again until golden-brown, usually 5-7 minutes.

Remove and cut into pieces and let cool for a couple of minutes before serving plain or with marinara dip.

Yours will look something like this, though this is a stock photo 🙂

Let me know if you like it!  Cauliflower sounds horrendous but it’s amazing how little taste it has and how easy it is to fool your palate into actually enjoying it.
