 5 cups Riced Cauliflower
 1 lb Baconcooked and crumbled
 8 oz Cream Cheesesoftened
 4 oz Goat Cheese
 1 ½ cups Parmesan Cheesegrated and divided
 ½ cup Cheddar Cheeseshredded
 ½ cup White Cheddar Cheeseshredded
 1 cup Crushed Pork Rinds
 3 Cloves of Garlic
 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
 1 tsp Onion Powder
 1 tsp Garlic Powder
 ½ tsp Sea Salt
 ½ tsp Black Pepper
 Oil for Frying
1

To rice the cauliflower you can pulse it in a food processor or even just use a cheese grater. I used a cheese grater.

2

In large mixing bowl, combine riced cauliflower, bacon, softened cream cheese, goat cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, sharp garlic white cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup grated Parmesan, minced garlic, 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning, sea salt and pepper. Mix until all ingredients are well incorporated. Refrigerate 1-2 hours to allow to firm.

3

Combine crushed pork rinds, remaining 1 cup Parmesan cheese, remaining 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning, onion powder and garlic powder. This mixture will be your breading.

4

After cauliflower mixture has had time to chill and firm, roll mixture into even balls. I made mine approximately an inch and a half to two inches in diameter. This made 30 balls. Freeze for 3 Hours, up to overnight.

5

In a large pan, heat about one inch of oil over medium-high to high heat. Using different oils will change the temperature at which you should heat it. Be sure to check the smoke point for any oil you choose to use. When I am frying things stove-top I use my non-stick wok. The high sides help prevent splatter and it makes for easy clean up.

6

Roll each ball in breading mixture until well and evenly coated. When oil is nice and hot, drop balls in 5 or 6 at a time. Fry about 7 Minutes, flipping once, until they are a nice even golden brown all over.

7

Remove from oil and let cool on a paper towel. The paper towel will soak up excess grease. I served these with a low-carb marinara and also ranch dressing. They both made for great dips.
