Breaded Cauliflower

This delicious mainstay dish can be an appetizer or side dish...and is wonderful served with turkey, roast beef and ham.


4 to 6 servings


1 small head cauliflower, broken into florets (about 5 cups)
4 egg yolks
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon granulated (white) sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup butter
minced fresh parsley, optional


Place cauliflower and a small amount of water in a skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until crisp-tender, about 8 minutes. Drain and set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk egg yolks and seasonings. Place bread crumbs and cheese in a large resealable plastic bag. Add a few florets at a time to the egg mixture; toss to coat. Using a slotted spoon, transfer cauliflower to crumb mixture; toss to coat.

In a skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Cook cauliflower in batches until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley if desired.
