If you like buffalo dip flavor, these are a great alternative to the whole deep frying and chicken skin. I tweeked Step 3 to dip the cauliflower in the bread crumb mixture and I baked longer than stated to make sure the coating was crisp. I usually am not one of those 'take a picture of my food' people, but I did it for this dish! Would I make it again? Oh yeah! Read More

Absolutely Delicious! I took this recipe and made it to a T. My method was just a a little different. All I did was coat the florets with the mixture and scatter them onto a half sheet pan with a medium gauge rack on it. Because there was a lot of liquid that drained through, I dumped the mixture back into my bowl using it to put half of the florets back in while I used a plastic zip lock bag to coat the first batch in the crumbs. I used half of the crumbs for the first batch, then the other half for the second batch. I just drained the 2nd batch of florets before putting them in the ziplock. Once I put them onto the rack, I made sure they were flat and let them bake for 15 minutes. When the 15 minutes were up, I switched the oven to broil, high and let it broil for 5 minutes. The result was a perfectly breaded and crispy morsel of AMAZING! I WILL be making this over and over again! Oh my word! These are so good! Read More

I subbed pulverized pork rinds instead of the croutons for a lower carb option. Turned out great although not very spicy with Franks sauce. Didn't even need the blue cheese dip. Would totally make again! Read More

I made it twice so far. I have not made the blue cheese dressing aspect of the recipe. I lazily stick with store bought ranch dressing. The fist time I made the recipe I followed the directions. The second time I reduced the mayonnaise by 1 tablespoon to bring out more of the buffalo sauce flavor/spice. I used cornbread bread crumbs in place of croutons. I also cook them longer, maybe about 25-30 minutes, till they are golden brown. I really enjoy this recipe. Thank you Read More

When you're craving wings and don't want the fat or are a vegetarian - this is a great alternative snack! I altered the recipe slightly by using panko instead of the croutons and I used ranch instead of blue cheese which was tasty as a dipping sauce as well. If you like your "wings" spicy, I would add a little more hot sauce. I also left the cauliflower in the oven about 5-10 minutes longer (or until they were golden brown). The results were very good!

I omitted the egg and substituted panko bread crumbs for the croutons and seasoned them with garlic salt garlic powder nutritional yeast and pepper. They turned out great and my entire family enjoyed them. Read More

Delicious! I skipped the mayo unnecessary fat. Mixing the buffalo sauce with one egg worked great. The croutons and Parmesan were a brilliant touch everyone at work was drooling over these. Next time I make them I ll probably add water to the sauce as it ended up being a bit salty for my taste or I just won t submerge the full leaflets into the buffalo sauce. Other than that absolutely delicious! Read More
