Cauliflower “Wings”

So I made cauliflower wings for part of a luncheon “tea” (we do those just because) one day.  They were so yummy that I had to take a picture of them!  I posted this picture on Facebook:cauliflower wings A few of my friends were interested in how I made them.

With the Super Bowl coming up I thought I would make them again as a great meat-free (vegetarian, NOT vegan) alternative to snack on.  They are fun to dip in ranch, blue cheese, something spicy, really whatever you might dip wings in.

This is what I did:

Gather:
Cauliflower – one head
2 Eggs
Salt, pepper, garlic
2-3 cups of Italian breadcrumbs (or breadcrumbs seasoned to taste)
about 1/2 cup Parmesan grated  cheese
Butter (for sauteing)
Water (for boiling)

First,
Cut the cauliflower into chicken wing sizes.  (Yes this is entirely subjective; go with what look most appealing to you)

Then,
Boil your wings for 6 or 7 minutes just to soften them up a bit.

While
they are boiling, mix the eggs, salt, pepper, and garlic in a bowl.

Next,
take the cauliflower out of the water and dry them.  Once they are dryer, put the cauliflower in the bowl with the egg mixture.  It’s not necessary to do it one at a time, but don’t put so many you can’t properly coat them in egg.

Then,
Take them out of the egg and put them in a bag with the bread crumbs and the Parmesan.  I really only sprinkled on some Parmesan, not much in relation to the amount of bread crumbs.  Shake the bag until the cauliflower is nicely coated.

Finally,
saute in butter until golden.

Serve
with whatever you would serve wings with.  Celery and dip or something of the sort.

Are you watching the Super Bowl?  Do you love snacks? And what are you making?
