Healthy Cheddar Bay Biscuit Swap with Cauliflower
Cauliflower Invades Cheddar Bay...Anyone who's ever set foot inside Red Lobster knows how incredibly addictive the chain's Cheddar Bay Biscuits are. And the servers will basically keep bringing them until you explode! Better choice: Make this copycat recipe at home. It's got fewer calories, way less fat, and a boost of fiber, thanks to the whole-wheat flour and cauliflower (which you totally can't taste)!

Cook: 15 minutes
Cool: 10 minutes
1 cup roughly chopped cauliflower (or 3/4 cup cauliflower rice)
1 cup whole-wheat flour
3/4 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
1 tbsp. whipped butter, room temperature
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. dried parsley
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Dash cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
Pulse cauliflower in a food processor until reduced to the consistency of coarse breadcrumbs. (Even if you begin with cauliflower rice, don’t skip this step!)
Place cauliflower crumbs in a large microwave-safe bowl; cover and microwave for 2 minutes. Uncover and stir. Re-cover and microwave for another 2 minutes, or until hot and soft.
Transfer to a fine-mesh strainer to drain. Let cool for about 10 minutes.
Using a clean dish towel (or paper towels), firmly press out as much liquid as possible.
Return cauliflower crumbs to the large bowl. Add remaining ingredients, and thoroughly mix.
Evenly form into 6 mounds (about 1/3 cup each), and place on the baking sheet, evenly spaced.
Bake until tops are golden brown and insides are cooked through, about 10 minutes.
