These air-fried buffalo cauliflower bites are the perfect appetizer for any occasion. A great and healthy snack alternative to buffalo wings that still gives that punch of flavor.
You'll love how quickly you can whip this tasty snack together by making them in your air fryer. They taste absolutely lecker paired with some celery sticks and blue cheese dressing!
I used the Instant Vortex Plus Air Fryer Oven to make this delicious air fryer cauliflower recipe which made the cooking process all that much easier. If you use a different type of fryer, no problem. Simply adjust settings and cook time accordingly.
I love making these air fryer buffalo cauliflower wings / bites for many reasons. Not only are they an affordable side to make, but it's such an easy recipe that can be done so quickly by air frying!
I would take these over french fries any day, and I love that they aren't greasy or oily like they would be if they had been done in the deep fryer. They're vegetarian wings ... just without all the grease!
My Mutti is the one who taught me this wunderbar recipe, and the first time she made it, she used Frank's hot sauce.
We all came to an agreeance that using regular hot sauce was a bit too spicy for us ... SO ... we then tried Frank's Wing Sauce. This was so good, and coming from a not-so-spicy food lover like myself, that is saying a lot.
I love using this sauce from now on. It has the perfect amount of bite that you're looking for. Something that isn't too overpowering. But the right amount of spice to pair with your preferred dressing or topping. I love these bites with blue cheese dip! YUM! But I could see these being absolutely delectable with ranch dressing as well.
Regular breadcrumbs have always been my go-to, simply because I'm so used to using them and I know how to use them properly. But, once I heard about Panko crumbs, I was intrigued.
But what's the difference?
Panko crumbs are made using white bread that is crustless. But these are not ground as finely as regular breadcrumbs, meaning they are larger and resemble flakes. When you use Panko crumbs, because they are so much larger in size, they crisp quite nicely, which would make them a great addition to this air-fried buffalo cauliflower bites recipe!
But there's one way of making breadcrumbs that I haven't mentioned yet, and that's Oma's buttered breadcrumbs! She uses this scrumptious bread crumb method for a topping on her delicious cauliflower recipe. Since we're on the topic of bread crumbs AND cauliflower ... I had to mention her amazing recipe. I always loved this one.
Here's how easy it is to coat your buffalo cauliflower bites.
Start by mixing melted butter and wing sauce together, then pouring over cauliflower pieces.
Mix until all pieces are evenly coated.
Pour breading mixture over sauced cauliflower and mix until all pieces are evenly coated.
Lay cauliflower in a single layer on air fryer tray, and drizzle some extra Frank's Wing Sauce over top.
From there, simply air fry, and dig in. I wasn't kidding when I said this recipe is quick and easy! Just how we like it.
Cheese Spätzle is a traditional German noodle dish. A sort of Germanized version of 'Mac & Cheese', only better! Käsespätzle - YUM!
This vegan German-style Leek and Lentil Stew with Potatoes (Linseneintopf mit Kartoffeln und Lauch) is my new favorite recipe. It's quick and easy to prepare, filling, and delicious.
This German streusel fruit tart, Obstkuchen mit Streusel, uses either fresh or canned fruit, such as apricots, peaches, cherries. A delicious treat, just like Oma bakes.
