Baked Cheesy Cauliflower Bites

Baked cheesy cauliflower bites are great for those of you that struggle to get your kids to eat their vegetables.  It seems that mums have to be quite creative in the kitchen and ‘hide’ all the vegetables in order to get the kids to eat them.

If this sounds familiar, then you are going to love these cheese and cauliflower bites.  It’s quite hard to get kids to eat cauliflower recipes, but as the cauliflower is disguised in these so well….it is worth giving a go!

Baked Cheesy Cauliflower Bites

These cheesy cauliflower bites require very little in the way of ingredients, and also minimal preparation.  They don’t ‘look’ like veggies, so there is a high chance that the kids will tuck into them.  That is of course if you don’t eat them first as they are really quite tasty!!

They also make great finger food for parties, so add them with some dipping sauce and let the kids enjoy.

Easter Cheese and Cauliflower Bites

Easter is fast approaching so we decided to make these bites into chicken and egg shapes using Easter cookie cutters.  This was purely for an added bit of fun and is absolutely not required!

You could however make them into any shape you please, or simply leave them as round discs or balls. You can be as adventurous or non adventurous as you like!

    I don’t normally buy cauliflower because I was never a fan of eating it growing up. My mom also never tried mashing in and adding cheese and baking it. I think I will have to try this. I am pinning for later!
