If you’re looking to serve a snack big on flavor this is one of my favorites! I do love Buffalo Wings, but I think I love this cauliflower even more (and these are much healthier)!

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

  2. Cut cauliflower into bite sized pieces discarding the core.
  3. Combine milk, flour, garlic powder, pepper and olive oil in a large bowl. Place batter and cauliflower in a large Ziploc bag and toss until cauliflower is coated.
  4. Pour cauliflower into a large strainer letting any excess batter drip off. Sprinkle with Panko breadcrumbs and gently toss.
  5. Place on a foil lined pan and bake 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and gently toss with buffalo sauce. You want the cauliflower coated but not soaked.
  6. Place back on the pan and bake an additional 5-10 minutes or until cauliflower is tender crisp.
  7. Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing.

Recipe Notes

Note: You can purchase store bought buffalo sauce or mix 1/3 cup melted butter with 2/3 cup hot sauce (such as Frank's Red Hot). Whisk until combined.
