It’s the weekend, so it’s time to relax and be silly again. I live for weekends, to have time off, relax and be with my family. And it continues to be gorgeous outside which I am just over the moon with happiness because this means this weekend we are going to go for a drive in the mountains and hopefully get some beautiful pictures. Ah….the great outdoors!

Last weekend I was struggling on what to make with this cauliflower that hubs bought. He’s not a fan of it so I was trying to make something that he’d eat. One of my favorite ways to eat any vegetable is to bread it and fry it. However this time I didn’t want to fry it because I’m trying to stay away from fried food. I said I’m trying. So wouldn’t you know it I got the brilliant idea to bake it instead not quite sure how it would turn out. But every time I’ve used Panko breadcrumbs in the past I was not disappointed with the result.
I mean let’s be serious, anytime you bread something and fry it is so delicious, but I have come to realize that if you choose to bake instead of fry the food is just as delicious, and deep down you feel great about yourself knowing that you ate something healthy. But let’s talk about these florets for a bit. So easy to make. You dip them in egg, then dip them in breadcrumbs. Now if you want them to be nice and crisp and super crunchy I really urge you to use Panko breadcrumbs, I cannot guarantee if you use any other breadcrumbs that the results would be the same.
I baked mine for about 35 minutes at a high temperature, 425 F degrees, because I wanted them really golden. They were magnificent. So crunchy on the outside, yet the cauliflower soft and delicious. I bet you could get those picky kids to eat this!
