Cauliflower Bites

IMG_4533

These are cauliflower bites and with ranch dressing, they are delicious. I found this recipe on Damn Delicious and their bites turned out pretty and brown. Mine look liked chicken nuggets. However, I cooked mine differently. I tried the skillet as instructed, cooking only a few at a time but it was messy and taking way too long so I switched to a small pot and poured enough vegetable oil inside that the florets were covered completely. I made my own deep fryer and was able to cook more at a time than the 5 or 6 that the original website instructed. I enjoyed eating them and even anti-vegetable Matt liked them. 

Ingredients 

  • 1 1/2 Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Emeril’s Essence Seasoning
  • 4 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • Vegetable oil

Directions

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a pot over medium-high heat. I suggest a smaller pot so that you can make sure each floret is covered with vegetable oil. 
  2. In a large bowl, combine Panko, Parmesan and Emeril’s Essence; set aside.
  3. Working in batches, dredge cauliflower in flour, dip into eggs, then dredge in Panko mixture.
  4. Add cauliflower to pot and cook until evenly golden and crispy, about 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
