Cauliflower is one of the hottest food trends, and if you like Buffalo wings (who doesn’t) this Buffalo cauliflower makes a great appetizer or starter. This recipe is super easy to prepare, and cleanup is a breeze. Place the cauliflower in a large Ziploc® Brand Bag along with the flour mixture, shake well to combine, and place on a baking sheet. After baking in the oven, the cauliflower will become crispy on the outside and soft on the inside with the perfect amount of spice. Serve with blue cheese or ranch dressing with celery on the side.
