These Cauliflower Hash Browns are perfect for breakfast with some eggs. And they also make a good side with dinner. A great way to switch up hash browns by subbing out riced potatoes with riced cauliflower. Baked in the oven till crispy golden brown. For a guilt free hash brown that is much lower in carbs and delicious. Gluten Free, Keto, Low Carb, Easy.
So if you're a regular reader here at AFCJ then you already know that cauliflower is a thing with me...
LIKE FOR REAL.. it's one of my go to veggies that you can almost always find in my fridge.
And so I've experimented with it quite a bit... I mean a lot. 🤔 It's been turned into pizza crust, potato salad, and even wings... Plus so much more...
It's such a versatile vegetable that it can easily take on the flavors of whatever you throw at it.
And since it's low carb and full of nutritional benefits then Why not?
Some Top Nutritional Benefits of Cauliflower:
- It's high in fiber which is important for digestive health
- A good source for antioxidants which may help reduce inflammation
- Also it may aid in weight loss since it's low in calories and high in fiber 😏
Ingredients in Cauliflower Hash Browns:
- Riced Cauliflower- I prefer to use fresh cauliflower for these... so no pre-cooking the cauliflower required.
- Yellow Onion- diced small
- Garlic Cloves- finely minced
- Cheddar Cheese- buy the blocks and shred it yourself
- Eggs- large
- Blanched Almond Flour
- Seasonings- hot sauce, salt and pepper to taste is all you really need... but feel free to experiment with your favorite herbs.
How to make Cauliflower Hash Browns:
You want to start by ricing some cauliflower. This can be done easily in a food processor. But if you don't have one you could also use a box grater to rice the cauliflower.
Then put riced cauliflower in a bowl with remaining ingredients and combine.
Shape into equal sized patties and bake in pre-heated oven on parchment lined baking sheet.
Use an ice cream scoop to make equal sized patties for uniform baking. Also once mixed with a spoon I like to use my hands to really combine the mixture well.
Can I freeze Cauliflower Hash Browns:
Yes... they can easily be frozen in a freezer safe bag. I like to put pieces of waxed paper between them for easier removal when frozen.
They can also be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days.

How well do these freeze?
They can easily be frozen. Please refer to tips in the post on freezing them.
I really like these hash browns although I did not add the hot sauce or salt and pepper as I leave that up to whoever is going to eat them. I cooked these in my air fryer at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, flipped over then for 8 minutes. Be sure to use parchment paper for easy removal. Excellent.
What a wonderful low carb alternative to using potatoes! I love them, but I'm always up for making an old favorite a little more healthy. Yum!
These came out amazing. Used regular flour because my son has a nut allergy. Doubled all the ingredients.
Thanks Misti! 😘 Glad to hear you enjoyed them!

We love cauliflower in everything, and I love how easy these sound! Delicious little snack for the kids
Hey Stephanie, these Cauliflower hashbrowns looks so juicy and flavorful. I'm loving the idea of using something other than potatoes for hash-browns and these would go so well with any meal.
What a delicious idea! I have made mock mashed potatoes with cauliflower before but haven't thought of using it in place of regular potatoes for hash browns!! Love this!
These sounds and look absolutely delicious Stephanie. I love how easy is to make something so healthy. Love that this is low-carb too. Can't wait to try this!
We love cauliflower and my boys love it even more. This is a such a great way to serve this to them and I am sure they would be very happy. This can be a great after school snack for them.
We are cauliflower lovers here. What a great way to enjoy this delicious veggie. Perfect side dish for so many recipes...I would even eat it as dinner with a great dip.
What a great idea! I go through phases with using cauliflower more often and then I forget about it again. I've made mashed cauliflower, cauliflower rice, and pizza rusts but have yet to try frying it up in something like this.
Yes, we looooove hash browns over here! I will have to try these out and see how my family likes them - they look great!
Yes, I love hash browns. Yes, I love cauliflower and Yes I love having breakfast for dinner. So this recipe is definitely going on my menu!
