3 extra large
1 (.7 ounce) package
dry Italian-style salad dressing mix
olive oil for frying, or as needed
These are sooooooooooo good. I added just a dash of red pepper flakes but otherwise, everything just as the recipe called for. I certainly will make these again. My hubby and I ate the entire batch. We used it as our main dish with a side salad.
These were very yummy but had my whole family's (including the one year old baby who never has a problem with gas) stomachs in knots with gas for over 24 hours after eating them! I followed the recipe exactly, and we have never had a problem with eating cauliflower before, even in large quantities. I do not recommend giving these to small children unless you want to deal with a crying baby with a sore tummy!
This is a "wow" on the tongue! I was pleasantly surprised. Read all reviews before starting, so I food processed yellow banana peppers and red onion in with the cauli. We only had one head of cauliflower, so I cut recipe in half. Next time I'll get another head of cauliflower! As we don't keep Italian dressing in the house I just added a mix of what might be equivalent: marjoram, sweet basil, kelp, freshly squeezed garlic, chives, parsley, tarragon, thyme, celery salt . . . but it still was lacking punch, so I added quite a bit of salt and then some paprika. Once it fried in the olive oil (with a wee bit of butter cut in), it was amazing! Thank you for this. I can see adding leftover mashed potatoes to the mix, kale, or artichoke hearts next time. It's a very flexible recipe--heat it up, mellow it out--all in your personal taste & preferences. Will stick this one in the recipe box to use again & again. And, no leftovers at all--phenomenal with a little aioli garlic mustard sauce on top, too! mmMMMmmm.
Very simple and addictive! I forgot the baking powder and just used some salt, hot sauce and various dried herbs I had on hand for flavour, rather than any kind of premade dressing. It seems like the kind of recipe that it's hard to go wrong with. The texture was very nice too.
Very good! Added 1 cup of mild banana pepper rings to the cauliflower in the food processor and salted after frying. Also added 1 tsp pepper to the mix. Kids ate them up, and it's usually a fight to get the veggies in. Offered them ranch to dip, but they did not use it.
So easy and delicious. I added a bit more flour. You can tell by the consistency if you need to add a little more flour. My friends and I love this recipe.
Oh, my WORD!!! These are VERY goood! Kind of addicting, too. I opted to use Canola Oil, as it is so much better than Olive oil.....if frying. :) Anyway...TRY THESE! My daughter, who isn't that fond of cauliflower, LOVED these! As for the "gassy tummy problems", haven't had any problems!
I have used many recipes off this site but this is the first time I have taken the time to comment.
This recipes is a keeper. My 3 kids gobbled these up faster than I could make them, I have never went through a cauliflower so fast. Next time I think I will try adding green onion.
