Air fryer Buffalo Cauliflower bites

Ask me, what is so good about this Air fryer Buffalo Cauliflower bites? They are crunchy and “meaty” at the same time. If your kids don’t like vegetables, try to make this dish for them and believe me, they will change their mind.

When it comes to breading, don’t be afraid! Its very easy. I prefer to use panko bread crumbs and just one beaten egg.

Very easy!

What about the Buffalo sauce?

If you make this recipe for kids, please tomato sauce instead of hot sauce, to make it mild but still with reddish color.

For adult version, please use your favorite hot sauce. Mine is Sriracha, i am pouring it on everything!:)

BTW some people call this dish Air fryer cauliflower wings. Look a lot alike! But let say a healthy option.

Air fryer in general is a fantastic kitchen device, that i cant imagine my life without now. I bought mine in Costco about half a year ago for a great price!

Also i heard people a getting great results with Philips Air Fryer and XL Air fryer. They all are about the same capacity and can fit an entire chicken in it.

Air fryer Cauliflower is great for a party or even for a game day. Being KETO friendly, this recipe will please a wide group of friends, how amazing is that!
