1. Defrost and partially cook cauliflower in microwave (about 2 or 3 minutes) until tender. Drain. Begin to mash cauliflower so that it partially forms a paste but leave some small chunks. This may take a little practice. You can also separate the cauliflower into two batches one smashed well, the other chopped.
2. Mix into well beaten egg, the cauliflower, green onions, salt & pepper. Mix well.
3. In a skillet, melt the butter on medium/high heat. Ladle a small amount of the mixture into the hot skillet. With a spatula, push in the sides to form a circle. The pancake should be small enough for your spatula to fit under completely. If your skillet is large enough, do two or more at a time. Cook until brown, flip over very carefully and brown the other side. Repeat until all are cooked. These can be kept warm in an oven until the rest of breakfast is ready.
4. Serve with a small dab of sour cream.
