It’s here! It’s here! Football season is here!
College football games started this week and the professional games start next week.
I’ve got my Fantasy Draft on Wednesday – I really need to do some researching!
I’m a little nervous about how to handle this sports season being on the West Coast for the first time. I guess it’s a good thing the boys have me up early! It’s also going to be strange seeing the TV Guide filled with a bunch of schools I’ve never watched or potentially never even heard of! It’ll be harder to find those SEC schools I so badly want to watch, so I’m definitely grateful there’s an SEC Network on which I can watch my Tigers.
To help kick-off the season the tastemakers at #SundaySupper have put together a fantastic menu of easy game day recipes for your next tailgate or couch-gate. A big thank you to Coleen of The Redhead Baker for hosting this fun event!
I’ve jumped on the bandwagon a few years late, but I’m sharing Buffalo Cauliflower Bites today!
Cauliflower is one of those veggies that we simply avoided. And honestly, I’m not sure why. Even when it’s provided on those party veggie platters, I skip over it for its friend Broccoli. It’d been bugging me so I forced the issue and bought a head of cauliflower to have in the “veggie train” at my son’s birthday party.
I did try it. And really didn’t have much of an opinion on it. It’s fairly bland. And I still prefer broccoli. At least raw.
So what to do with the leftovers? I’ve been dying to try the cauliflower pizza crust but decided to go an easier route. Take the post popular way to prepare cauliflower for cauli-haters: buffalo it!
My husband was beyond skeptical. I told him I was making it and that was that. He said, “Okay. I’ll try it, but I probably won’t eat it.” Guess what? He not only ate it, he’s asking for it again! And so am I.
This recipe will feed 4 people.
Buffalo Cauliflower Bites
- 4 C cauliflower florets

I’d seen Buffalo Cauliflower pop up a few years ago, but didn’t try it until this year at a local restaurant, and loved it! This is the perfect football food!
Yes, definitely late to the party but I don’t care, it’s delicious!
One of my favorite restaurants serves this and I’ve always wanted the recipe! I can’t wait to make this.
I hope you do, you won’t regret it. 😉
I’ve always wanted to try making these. Yours look FABULOUS! YUMMY!
Do it!! 100%
Oh My YUM Lauren. What a great way to use cauliflower.
Thanks, Wendy. So good!
You’ve brought cauliflower to a brighter, tastier Buffalo dimension! Although I’ve always been a fan of the veggie, I’m saving your style of cauliflower to a must-try recipe =) P.s. Welcome to the West Coast! (I’m in Santa Monica CA.)
Thanks! We’re in Redondo, so not too far! Haven’t explored SM yet.
