Everyone will love these Cauliflower Cheese Chicken Fritters. Not only do they make great party finger food they they are perfect for a mid-week family meal. Light, crispy, and packed with cauliflower, these are always demolished.
This is a recipe I shared back in 2014, when I knew very little about taking photos, even less about writing blog posts and zero about SEO and site optimisation.
Fast forward 3 years and my blog has changed a little 😉 my photos are infinitely better, I waffle on about recipes for at least 300 words now and I know something about SEO (but not much!!!)
When I posted first posted these Cauliflower Cheese Chicken Fritters this is what I wrote:
“These are a great way to hide cauliflower for kids! My boys are not cauliflower fans, but hidden in these cheesy fritters they demolish a portion easily.
This mixture is also great turned into meatballs and served with marinara sauce over pasta.”
That is it!!!!!!
No mention of what they were called, no hints about cooking them, no funny story, nothing. Just 3 lines and a recipe.
Oh and a pretty awful picture of them! (there is a screen shot at the end of this post 😉 just so you can see how bad it was!!!)
So today I am re-writing this, adding some new updated pictures and pulling it to the top of my blog. As I said back then, these are great for kids as the cauliflower is hidden away, it binds everything together but doesn’t scream ‘I’m here’.
My boys cannot stand cauliflower but they will happily eat these fritters. The cheese and the chicken mince bulk them out, make them taste delicious and turn a boring vegetable into a scrummy dinner.
After I had taken photos of these Cauliflower Cheese Chicken Fritters I gave away a batch to a darling friend.
Her girls loved them, so she made them again herself using some turkey mince (ground turkey). They were a big hit, so feel free to substitute in turkey mince.
How to Cook Chicken Fritters
I have given two methods for cooking these chicken fritters.
My preferred method is to start them off in a frying pan and then transfer them to the oven. This way you get a nice crisp outside and the inside is juicy and delicious.
You can spray the raw fritters with spray oil and then bake them from start to finished. This doesn’t give such crispy results but it does cut down the fat. (I don’t like using spray oil as I always seem to spray it over the back of the cooker!!!)
(The nutritional values below are for 4 fritters and it doesn’t take into account any oil used.)
p.s if cheese and chicken is your jam, then check out these amazing Goat Cheese Rosemary Baked Chicken Meatballs from the lovely Madison over at A Joyfully Mad Kitchen.
