Fried Cauliflower

Fried Cauliflower

Cauliflower - cleaned and cut into flowerets
Breading:

Bread crumbs
Garlic powder
Onion powder
Adobo seasoning
Accent - optional
Salt
Ground black pepper
Dry oregano
Dry basil
Dry parsley
Ground hot pepper flakes
Grated Romano and Parmesan cheeses
ALL ABOVE BREADING INGREDIENTS TO TASTE

Flour
Eggs
Milk or water

Canola oil

You will need three dishes (I use pie plates). Put egg in one dish add a small amount of milk or water and scramble well. Put flour in another dish and season with salt and black pepper, mix well. Place all breading ingredients in another dish and mix well. Dip cauliflower in flour and shake off excess, then dip in egg, then in breading and shake off excess.

Heat canola oil in skillet. Fry cauliflower in oil till golden brown on all side. Drain on brown paper bag and paper towel. Serve hot as veggie, side dish or appetizer. Taste very good with a splash of lemon juice.

yup it's an italian thing.

i'll tell ya a secret it's born out of not being wasteful. after you bread your chicken or veal cutlets or your eggplant what do you do with the left over breading stuff? you make fried cauliflower to go with!! LOL if my mom still had any left after the cauliflower or if she didn't have any cauliflower because she made another veggie, she made italian "hush puppies" just by pouring the egg mixture into the crumb mixture and forming balls or patties and fried them.

And then, when you have fried all your cauliflower and STILL have some
of that delicious sounding breading...

i have never fried a pickle before, but when we went to busch gardens VA last year i tried my first fried pickle and i liked it. would i bread a whole pickle or a spear? would i do the 3 step process? and would my breading over power the pickle?
