Keto Tater Tots [Low-Carb Copycat Recipe]

Tater Tots were an obsession of mine as a kid. Ever since my mom used to buy them, they’d always be requested by me in place of mashed potatoes. They’re crispy, they’re crunchy, and they’re just plain good. Being that I’m keto now, I decided to take it upon myself to delve into the creativity of my childhood and re-create this favorite of mine with keto tater tots.

You definitely won’t miss the potato here, and unlike many other cauliflower goods – you can’t actually taste much of the cauliflower. This is partly due to the frying oil I used (bacon fat), as the flavors really impart themselves into the tater tots. If you can, choose lard, tallow, or some sort of animal fat to fry with. If you don’t have any on hand, feel free to use olive oil.

You’ll end up with miniature sized, golden brown bites of deliciousness that will go with just about every meal. Feel free to serve them up with fry sauce, and dip away!

1 medium head cauliflower
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 large egg
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons psyllium husk powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup frying oil (I used Bacon Fat)

    Those look really good! I really miss tater tots on Dr gundry’s plant paradox. And this looks like it’s a winner!

      Thanks! I’d love to know what you think when you try them out 😊 You can also roll them into a big log and cut them that way, or stick the “dough” in a piping bag and cut as you squeeze it out to save some time!

    Fabulous. Can keto hash browns be made from this?

    ❤Great idea!👍 Thanks for trying this out. 👏 Truthfully, one of the “tots” I really missed after starting the keto lifestyle is Cauliflower Tots… a tasty frozen gem covered in a ‘carbalicous’ breading. I can’t wait to try this recipe! I’m so excited… and I just can’t hide it… I think I’m gonna like it❣️😂🤦‍♀️

      I hope these turn out to be a suitable replacement! Let me know what you think once you get a chance to make them 😊

    These look awesome I’ll have to make them. I’m assuming it’s OK to leave a bit of the cauliflower stem since I always do when I make cauliflower mash and it turns out fine.

    • @RuledMe on January 7, 2024 at 7:19 pm

      Yeah of course! I hope you love them 😁

  6. @joannenuzzi137 on January 7, 2024 at 6:10 pm

    Key is probably squeezing the water out

    • @RuledMe on January 7, 2024 at 7:18 pm

      That is the key with almost every “transformative” cauliflower dish! Getting the water out allows us to get texture and crunch out of it 😋

  7. @oviandre on January 7, 2024 at 6:21 pm

    what type of oil???…hmmmm….oil…hmmmm

    • @RuledMe on January 7, 2024 at 7:18 pm

      I recommend bacon fat or tallow, but avocado, high oleic sunflower or extra virgin olive oil can work too.

    Finally, something tasty with cauliflower, thx
