Crispy Parmesan Cauliflower Bites

This is a great side dish but can also be served as a healthy appetizer. Cauliflower florets are coated with a seasoned Parmesan panko coating and baked until crispy and golden. Serve it up with some marinara and go to town!


1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
3 eggs
1/3 cup buttermilk
1 1/3 cups panko breadcrumbs
¾ cup parmesan cheese
½ tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
Marinara sauce for dipping


Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Step 2:  In a dish, whisk the buttermilk and eggs. In another dish, combine the panko bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

Step 3: Dip the cauliflower in the egg mixture, then coat in the panko mixture.  Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender.

Step 4: Serve with marinara sauce!
