OK – this may be my favorite low-carb substitute yet!!!

When I can, I try to stick to a pretty low carb diet.

You can find all my keto recipes at!

Which is really freakin hard when potatoes are your favorite food.

Seriously. French fries. Mashed potatoes. Baked potatoes. Potato salad.


I love them alllllll. But, they’re obviously very very carb-heavy.


DUH. As if any other vegetable could save us at a time like this!

Once again, cauliflower saves the day as the perfect potato substitute and this hash brown recipe proves it!

The best part is…it’s the easiest thing ever…

Hint: It’s the same recipe as the Crispy Cauliflower Tots, just a different method!

Preheat oven to 375°.

Vic Trick: For this recipe, I use the microwavable cauliflower rice (because it’s like 100000000x easier), but if you wanna be a hero, you can grate or chop and steam a head of cauliflower into rice size.

Cook the cauliflower rice, then wring it through a dish towel or use a paper towel to soak up as much liquid as possible.

In a large bowl, combine cauliflower rice, 1 egg, 1/2 cup shredded cheese (any kind works – I used a taco blend), 2 tsps of garlic powder, and a couple pinches of salt & pepper.

Spread the mixture into a thin layer on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.

Baked for about 20 minutes or until the edges get nice and browned and crispy.

Remove from the oven and THAT’S IT!

I break mine up into squares or smaller pieces and put them under a runny egg….yummmmmmm.

Give it a try and let me know your thoughts!

Happy Eating!

    This looks deliscious - Looking forward to tasting it!

    Curious. Has anyone else experienced an strange aroma to riced packaged cauliflower? I've bought a few and they all had a noticeable smell, unnatural and unpleasant. Don't know what, or why, but going to stick with fresh, and pulse it in the food processor.
