Buffalo Cauliflower


My sister-in-law was telling me about a buffalo cauliflower dish she had and it sounded like the most amazing fake out dish (healthy but tastes like a cheat meal). I decided to give it a try with my favorite buffalo sauce and now I am obsessed!  It is soooo good and really easy. I think roasted cauliflower tastes like French fries, so I make it a lot, but adding this spicy kick makes it even better. I served it with our perfect filet, and it was a great idea for Sunday dinner.

sauceThe key to this dish is the perfect buffalo sauce. I love Wing-Time, but use your favorite.


The other key ingredient-Panko bread crumbs. These super crispy bread crumbs give the cauliflower a crunchy texture without having to fry it. I just use a sprinkle to keep it light, but it really makes the dish. Regular bread crumbs will get soggy, so make sure to use these!


Serve with our perfect filet, and enjoy!
