Looking for a meat alternative appetizer recipe? These healthy baked cauliflower bites taste anything but healthy! Perfect game day appetizer and super quick to throw together! Oh yea… and gluten free. Score!
1/2 cauliflower, cut into florets
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 cup Franks RedHot Original Sauce
1 tablespoon butter
Preheat your oven to 420 degrees F
In a bowl whisk the eggs with a little salt and pepper
In another bowl mix together the almond flour, Parmesan, salt, pepper, onion power, garlic powder, and paprika until combined
Working with a few at a time, add the florets into the egg mixture and toss to coat. After coated with egg put them into the almond flour mixture and toss to coat. To keep it easy only use one hand for the egg mixture and the other hand for the flour!
Add the florets to a sheet tray sprayed with non stick cooking spray
Once all of the florets are prepared spray the tops with non stick cooking spray and put into the preheated oven
Bake a total of 15-18 minutes, flipping halfway through
While they are cooking make the sauce. In a small saucepan over medium high heat add the hot sauce and butter. Mix until the butter is melted and hot
Once the cauliflower bites are done cooking take them out and put them into a bowl. Pour the sauce over them, toss, and serve with either ranch or blue cheese. Yum!
