My mother used to make these when I was growing up, but the original recipe had mashed potatoes in it. I suppose you could sub mashed cauliflower or turnip, but I don’t think that’s necessary really. Mom also coated hers in lots of bread crumbs and deep fried them like one does Chicken Kiev. A lot of trouble done that way in my opinion, and they are inclined to fall apart cooked in deep grease. Now, when I do these, I put the breadcrumbs and shallow fry in a skillet. Be sure you are using a low-carb bread that is suitable for the phase of Atkins you are in. This method is just as good in my opinion and much, much easier. Induction friendly recipe if you use an Induction bread.
