  • 6 cups cauliflower florets (about 1½ pounds)
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2½ teaspoons everything bagel seasoning


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place cauliflower in a food processor. Process until finely chopped. Transfer to a microwave-safe bowl. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and microwave on High for 3 minutes. Let cool slightly.
  3. Transfer the cauliflower to a clean kitchen towel and wring out excess moisture. Return to the bowl and stir in Cheddar and egg until thoroughly combined.
  4. Divide the mixture into 8 portions on the prepared baking sheet and flatten into 3½-inch circles. Using a 1-inch biscuit cutter, make a hole in the center of each circle. Remove the small circle and pat that dough onto the bagel ring. Sprinkle with seasoning.
  5. Bake until browned and crispy around the edges, 22 to 25 minutes.
  • To make ahead: Freeze baked bagels between layers of parchment or wax paper in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
  • Equipment: Parchment paper

I made these for friends, and they just loved them! I made extra and froze them. The recipe doesn’t say how to reheat them, however. Do they go straight from freezer back to the oven to that and warm, or do I thaw them in the fridge overnight? Any guidance would be appreciated.

First impression, tasted the cauliflower, like a lot of cauliflower substitutes for carbs....ok now with that in mind, this was actually really really good. I didn't bother with cutting out The middles. I just made little round patties and they were perfectly holding together, I put cream cheese on the top and they actually were delicious. It's the common known trouble of having to rice your cauliflower, a little time consuming, so you can do it yourself or you can buy it already done. But after that, adding the ingredients and patting them out and baking them were fine. That "everything bagel" mixture is incredible, and makes everything taste good !

These were a lot of trouble to make, were very bland, fell apart easily, and tasted nothing like bagels. Unless you have no other options, skip this recipe and just buy the real thing.
