Charlie's Saucery Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites:


  • 1 large head of cauliflower, cut into bite-sized florets
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk (or plant-based milk for a vegan option)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup Charlie's Saucery Hot Sauce
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (or vegan butter for a vegan option), melted
  • Green onions, chopped (for garnish)
  • Ranch or blue cheese dressing (for dipping)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.

  2. Prepare the Batter: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, milk, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper until you have a smooth batter.

  3. Coat the Cauliflower: Dip each cauliflower floret into the batter, ensuring it's well-coated. Shake off any excess batter and place the coated florets on the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each piece.

  4. Bake the Cauliflower: Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the cauliflower is golden brown and crispy.

  5. Prepare the Buffalo Sauce: While the cauliflower is baking, in a separate bowl, mix Charlie's Saucery Hot Sauce and melted butter. Whisk until well combined.

  6. Toss in Buffalo Sauce: Once the cauliflower is done, transfer the baked florets to a large mixing bowl. Pour the Charlie's Saucery and butter mixture over the cauliflower, tossing gently to coat each piece evenly.

  7. Bake Again: Place the coated cauliflower back on the baking sheet and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the bites are crispy and the sauce has caramelized.

  8. Serve and Garnish: Remove from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Garnish with chopped green onions. Serve the buffalo cauliflower bites with your favorite ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping.

These Buffalo Cauliflower Bites are a delicious, spicy twist on a classic favorite, and your guests won't believe they're not indulging in traditional buffalo wings!
