Keto cauliflower balls, These cauliflower balls are a great way to turn leftover cauliflower mash into a tasty side dish, appetizer or even a snack for the children.

We took our leftover cauliflower mash and added a mixture of 02 cheeses, formed them into balls, using almond flour for a crispy coating. Baked until golden these were a great low carb side dish for dinner or lunch.
