A little higher on the carb count makes these cauliflower bread toasties more of a sometimes food or on a day when your carb count is not too high from other meals. That said, this is a veggie and is gluten/grain free, sugar and nut free so you can hardly feel too bad about it. Take note, however, of any high blood-sugar spikes after to see if this is a meal for you to avoid whilst you are improving your insulin resistance.
Cauliflower bread toasties
- Prep Time
- Cook Time
- Difficulty Level Moderate
- 1 large cauliflower
- 2 eggs (mine were medium-sized so large may be only one)
- 50 grams grated cheese (cheddar works well)
- Oregano or any additional seasoning you love…garlic could be nice too
- Butter (for cooking/spreading on bread)
- Four slices of cheese per sandwich. Your choice. (I like Kerrygold's cheddar as well as gouda)
- Anything else your heart desires: prosciutto, bolognese sauce, avocado etc etc

- Pre-heat the oven to 220°C
- Boil some water in a pot.
- Using a food processor, rice the cauliflower (just blitz until fine). If no food processor, you can grate - it just takes much longer.
- Put the cauliflower in the pot of boiling water and cook for 2 mins.
- Line a tea-towel (or if you're all fancy, cheese-cloth) in a colander and drain the cauliflower into it, catching all the cauliflower in the cloth.
- (Note that the water of the cauliflower is nutritious and can be saved and used for a stock or cooking veggies with).
- Wring the water out of the cauliflower. *Caution, the water is boiling so you can run some cold water over it to cool it down.
- Wring every little bit of water out of the cauliflower, it needs to be super dry, a little like flour.
- Put in bowl and add all other ingredients: eggs (one at a time to check consistency), cheese, pepper, salt, oregano. Note: consistency should not be too dry but again, not wet, like a cake/bread mix.
- Finally, lay the mixture onto a tray that has been covered in baking paper.
- Press it out until it is about 1cm thick and make it into a large square. You can bake like this and cut later but I prefer to cut into four squares (bread) now.
- Cook in over for approx. 20 mins or until browed on top/around edges.
- Take out of oven and proceed to make sandwiches. (I like to layer two slices of one cheese and two of another and butter the outside of the bread).
- Put in a frying pan on a low-med heat (so that the cheese melts well) and add a little butter to the pan.
- Add sandwiches and cook. Flip so that you cook on both sides and make the bread nice and golden brown.
- Eat and enjoy.
