    Tots were flavorful, lightly browned but moist.

    Used all specified ingredients. Tasted before adding egg. Added more garlic and salt to taste then added egg. Baked with an additional 2 minutes because we like foods crispy. Very good and will make again. Like any recipe play with it to your liking.

    I made these today and they were delicious. I followed the recipe as it is written, but did add a little more cheddar cheese and microwaved the cauliflower until it was tender. 2 minutes was still too raw for my liking. They turned out great and I will definitely be making them again.

    Sounded like it would be a good recipe based on ingredients but we didn't like it at all. Took longer to prep and bake than it was worth. Would not make again

    I made this as written, as I almost always do with a new recipe. This one was good, but next time I make it I will add seasoned pepper (for a kick) and a little melted butter. Could also add some hot sauce. Overall, very good. Turned out crispy and easily turned out of the pan.

    I modified this to make it without panko so it was wheat free. I cooked it longer so it was more crispy. Absolutely delicious.

    Too much garlic powder. Will likely try to make again and see what happens.

    It turned okay but the a tbsp of garlic powder was way to much, ruined the dish. I recommend possibly a tsp next time.

    Amazing!!! I was pressed for time, I have 4 kids (1,4,5&6) so i decided to fry them. My kids loved them, they were told they were cheesey tots because God forbid you offer veggies! They tasted amazing!!! If you have a fryer I set mine at 350°, pan frying with oil i would set it around medium low, and did dollops that were about the size of a quarter, a silver dollar at the largest. Any larger the outside cooks faster than the inside and you don't get that tasty crisp. Great recipe for sure and I can't wait to make it again!!! Also i didn't have any bread crumbs at all on hand so I toasted some bread and tossed the toast into my food processor and added all the ingredients into the processor as well when they were ready to avoid more dishes!!

    I think I didn’t get all the moisture out completely but the tots all came out well, also added some sharp white cheddar, bomb

    I didn't have Panko breadcrumbs on hand so I used regular p.ain breadcrumbs. I also added an additional egg and made it 1 cup of cheese, and a pinch of salt. I fried some and baked the rest. both tasted very good!

    Didn't look like the picture and bland in taste.

    These were ok. They tasted good with ketchup, but were not big pleasers at my house. Maybe more garlic if I made again?

    Didn't look like the picture. The tops never browned. Besides that they were really good
