buffalo cauliflower bites

I had a head of cauliflower in my fridge just waiting for something to happen with it. I've wanted to make these brilliant Buffalo Cauliflower Bites for a long time and since I had no particular plans for the this said cauliflower I took the opportunity. It was super quick and easy and had my husband wanting more. The tangy buffalo coated cauliflower hot to the touch dipped in the cool creamy blue cheese dressing is mind blowing. Perfect little side to any dinner or just a great appetizer while you wait for dinner to finish cooking. 

1 head cauliflower 
1 cup milk 
3/4 cup whole wheat flour 
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/2 cup Franks Red Hot Sauce 
Blue cheese or your choice of dipping sauce

Preheat oven to 450

Combine flour and milk to create batter. Add garlic powder. Cut up head of cauliflower into bite size pieces. Dip each cauliflower into batter. Shake off as much excess batter and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for about 15-20 minutes. Flip them over midway. 

While they bake, melt unsalted butter in a wide sauce pan. Add Frank's Hot Sauce and stir. Remove cauliflower from oven and throw them in the sauce pan. Toss them in the sauce to coat. Place them back on the baking sheet and back in the oven for about 10 minutes until they turn golden. Flip them again to get the underside. 

Remove and serve while hot with Blue Cheese (you won't be mad!) or your choice dipping sauce. Enjoy!
