I loved these. They made a wonderful vegetarian meal with a salad but would be good as a side dish also. I even warmed them up the next day and they were STILL yummy.

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 400.
Cut cauliflower into bite size  pieces, place on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with paprika and roast in the oven for about 20 minutes until golden and fork tender.

Place roasted cauliflower in a bowl; mash with a potato masher or fork. Stir in bread cumbs, salt, pepper, cheese, and eggs. Form into 8 patties.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and cook fritters about 4 minutes on each side until crisp and golden.

Combine 1/8 teaspoon salt, yogurt and lemon juice; serve sauce with fritters.
