These low-carb fried mac and cheese patties by RuledMe on YouTube are healthy and keto-friendly for those that are watching their carb intake. Honestly, anything fried and cheesy sounds amazing. I love cauliflower mac and cheese but I’ve never had them in a snack-like patty form. It would be interesting to see what these would taste like. They look nice and golden brown. This is a perfect recipe for those that are vegetarians and serve as their main protein to go along with other sides. Also, I think it would be a great alternative for a guilt-free snack without all of the carbs that macaroni noodles consist of.
First, prep the cauliflower by cutting them into florets and taking any excess stem off. Add the cauliflower to a food processor and pulse until it is the consistency of short-grain rice. Then, transfer them to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave them for 5-7 minutes. Get all of the excess moisture out by wringing it out with a towel.

Next, once the cauliflower mixture is mixed with the spices and cheese, add the patties to a skillet into hot oil on medium-high heat. Allow them to crisp on one side before flipping it over. Continue to crisp them on both sides.
Overall, these would be a great snack to have or serve as a meal with veggies. It’s a low-calorie snack or meal for those that are looking for healthier options to enjoy regular dishes. These fried mac and cheese patties look so delicious I would try to dress it up as a burger.
