This cauliflower hash browns recipe is super tasty and even my hashbrown connoisseur husband says it tastes just like the real thing.



  • 2 cups riced cauliflower (about half of one large head of cauliflower)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • a few cracks of fresh black pepper
  • 1 tbsp finely diced onion
  • 1 tsp finely diced red pepper
  • 1 tsp finely diced green pepper
  • 1 small block Cotswold Cheese (also labeled as Double Gloucester Cheese with Onion & Chives)
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil


  1. In a bowl, combine riced cauliflower, egg, salt, pepper, onion, green pepper, and red pepper until thoroughly combined (the egg will help everything stick together).
  2. In a small pan over medium-high heat, add olive oil.
    Once the pan is hot and olive oil rolls around easily in the pan, use a large spoon to scoop half the cauliflower mix into the pan. Use the spoon to flatten the cauliflower down to about 1/3 inch thick, and also to smooth around the side so that it’s in a round or rectangle shape.
  3. Let sit and cook until brown and crispy underneath, about 4-5 minutes.
  4. Use a spatula to flip the cauliflower hash brown.
  5. Using a cheese grater, grate a generous amount of the onion and chive Cotswold cheese over the hash brown.
  6. Let the cauliflower hash brown cook until crispy underneath (another 3-4 minutes) and until the cheese on top has melted.
  7. Remove from your pan with a spatula, and repeat with the second half of the “batter”.
  8. Enjoy!


Tip: You can usually find Cotswold cheese in your grocery store, there’s no need to find a specialty cheese shop. In England, this type of Double Gloucester cow’s milk cheese is considered “Pub Cheese”. If they don’t have Cotswold, seek out an onion & chive flavor in a young soft Gouda or cheddar.
