  • Air Fryer


  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 6 tbsp butter melted
  • cup hot sauce Franks
  • 1 cup bread crumbs panko
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt


  • Starting with a washed and completely dry head of cauliflower cut or break into bit sized pieces.
  • In a large bowl, fully mix the melted butter and hot sauce.
  • Add the cauliflower florets to the bowl of butter and hot sauce. Combine until cauliflower bites are fully coated.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 350.
  • Mix together dry ingredients (flour, dried parsley, garlic powder and salt) and add to the bowl of cauliflower. Toss until well coated.
  • Spray air fryer cooking rack with cooking spray.
  • Place cauliflower buffalo bites on cooking rack, single layer, without touching too much.
  • Cook in air fryer for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown and tender. They will continue to darken a bit as they cool down.
  • Repeat the cooking process until the buffalo bites have all been cooked.
  • Keep warm in a warm oven as necessary until all have been cooked.
  • Serve with blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing as desired.


The bites are best served with a side of blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing and additional hot sauce. 
It is normal to have some of the breading left in the bowl after fully coating the cauliflower. 
These bites don't do well reheated, so make them right before you're ready to enjoy.
