I found a recipe for cauliflower tater tots on line. While I was following the recipe, I realized there were a lot of steps, that would really improve the texture and taste - so I created this updated version. (which is why the photos happen mid-way through). The end product photos didn't make it because they were gobbled up so quickly.

I will be making them again soon - so photos will be available then.

Until then - these are a real treat! You can enjoy them guilt free on your low carb plan.
