When it comes to football season, Monday nights are suddenly full of greasy pizza and Buffalo wings. Who doesn’t love all the junk food that comes along with sporting events? Hot dogs for baseball, nachos for basketball, and a little bit of everything for football. Let’s get real: People only ever want to host a Super Sunday party as an excuse to eat delicious chips, dips, and football-shaped foods. And there always seems to be a fruit and veggie platter that goes uneaten.
This year disguise the veggies with this wonderful recipe for the big game. These mildly spicy cauliflower bites are full of flavor and cut out some of the junk food.
- 5 cups fresh cauliflower florets
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- Pinch salt
- Pinch pepper
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 3/4 cup cayenne pepper sauce (such as Frank’s RedHot)
- Blue cheese or reach dressing, for dipping
- Preheat oven to 450 F.
- Spray baking sheet with cooking oil or olive oil, set aside.
- Mix together the garlic powder, salt, pepper, melted butter, and hot sauce in a small bowl to create Buffalo sauce.
