Buffalo Cauliflower Sandwich

Monday, April 29, 2019
I went into my grocery store and bought a couple heads of cauliflower. I usually purchase frozen cauliflower, and I wanted to try buying them fresh. The issue I ran into, however, was realizing that buying a couple heads of cauliflower actually gave me more to work with versus purchasing those small bags I would get.

So this meant getting creative and finding new ways to utilize cauliflower aside from steaming them or turning them into small bites.

I’ve seen recipes for a Buffalo Cauliflower Sandwich before, and I wanted to give it a try myself. I added my own mix to creating this dish. Basically meaning, every recipe I found I ignored the “extra” ingredients it called for.

Most of the Buffalo Cauliflower Sandwich recipes that I stumbled on listed flour or some type of breading to dip the cauliflower into. Obviously, I skipped this step.

I did the same in my Buffalo Cauliflower Bites. I’m sure adding the flour gives it a crispier taste, but I don’t have time for all of that.

Cauliflower, if not overcooked, has a natural crisp to it anyway. This worked just fine for me. I toasted my buns, and BOOM….there was my crisp.
