Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil. Spray foil with a cooking spray.
  • Cut the florets off of the head of cauliflower. If you have large florets, cut them in half to make them all as even-sized as possible.
  • In a large bowl, melt butter. Add buffalo sauce, olive oil, garlic powder and salt. Stir well to combine.
  • Add cauliflower florets to buffalo mixture and stir well until they are evenly coated. Spread onto prepared baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle 1/4 cup Panko crumbs over cauliflower. Do not stir. Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and flip pieces over. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup Panko crumbs over florets and return to oven for another 10 minutes or until desired doneness.
  • Serve hot with blue cheese dressing. 

Notes

You can leave out the Panko crumbs if you are looking for a low carb or keto buffalo cauliflower recipe. The crumbs on top give it a little crunch but they are not necessary.
