The other day I decided to venture out into my childhood and re-create one of my favorite recipes…..
Growing up in Slovakia one of my favorite meatless dishes was Breaded Cauliflower ( Vyprážaný Karfiol ) with fresh homemade tartar sauce and creamy mashed potatoes.
Even though I don’t make fried cauliflower often anymore it is still one of my favorite dishes…..even my two meat eating boys are warming up to the idea of breaded and fried CAULIFLOWER.
One of the important things while cooking on a budget is to make meals hearty and satisfying while keeping the cost down.
Breaded Cauliflower – Vyprážaný Karfiol with homemade tartar sauce and mashed potatoes fits this criteria perfectly.
- 1 Cauliflower
- 2 Eggs
- 3 Tbsp Milk
- Bread crumbs
- Oil for frying
STEP 1: Take cauliflower apart into florets. Cook in a large pot with salted water until the cauliflower is half cooked. Strain and set aside.
STEP 2: In a small bowl whisk together eggs and milk. Into the second bowl put flour and bread crumbs into the third bowl.
STEP 3: Bread cauliflower pieces by drenching them in flour then dipping them in egg wash and finally coating them in bread crumbs.
STEP 4: In a large skillet or wok heat the oil on medium-high. Deep fry cauliflower pieces on both sides until golden brown about 3 or 4 min. per side.
STEP 5: Take cauliflower pieces out of the oil and place them onto a plate layered with paper towels.
STEP 6: Serve with fresh tartar sauce and creamy mashed potatoes.
Don’t forget …. Keep Smiling …. Keep Cooking!
