Buffalo Cauliflower

original recipe from Persnickey Plates
The pictures there are prettier than mine, you may want to take a look!
1/2 head of cauliflower, cut into pieces

For the batter:
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup water
dash of your favorite Buffalo style hot sauce or wing sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon dried onion powder

For the sauce:
1/4 cup of your favorite Buffalo style hot sauce or wing sauce
3 tablespoons salted butter, melted
pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with tin foil and spray with non-stick spray and set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together the batter ingredients. It will be fairly thick.

Dip each piece of cauliflower into the batter until fully and evenly coated. Place onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.

Bake for about 15 minutes until the batter just hardens.

In a small bowl, mix together the sauce ingredients.

After 15 minutes, remove from the oven and brush each cauliflower piece with the buffalo sauce. Fully and evenly coat each piece.

Put back into the oven and bake for about 10 more minutes, until the sauce has mostly dried and the cauliflower is crispy.  You may want to brush with sauce one more time after removing from the oven.

Let cool slightly before taking a bite. Hot cauliflower can be dangersous! I enjoyed these with blue cheese dressing.

The original recipe called for the entire head of cauliflower, but I don't think there was enough batter for that, but there was more than I needed for half a head. So, maybe use 3/4 head of cauliflower.......
