Country Fried Cauliflower
Blue Ribbon Recipe
Everything is better fried ... including cauliflower! The outside is nice and crispy while the center gets warm and soft. I love Parmesan cheese, so I sprinkled it liberally on top. These were gone in no time in the Test Kitchen. They're a great snack or would be tasty as a side at a cookout. Very yummy! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Country Fried Cauliflower
- Mix together flour, spices, and 1 tbsp parmesan cheese. Dip cauliflower in beaten egg mixture; then coat with flour mixture. Add enough peanut oil to cover bottom of skillet and heat to medium high temperature for frying. Cook cauliflower on both sides until golden brown; do not overcook (2 - 3 minutes each side). Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle on fried cauliflower the remaining 1 tbsp parmesan cheese.
- Serve as side dish or with remoulade sauce for dipping. Delicious!
- *Note: If some of the clusters break off into smaller pieces that is fine. Just dip them and fry!
