Getting my kids to eat vegetables is often a chore, even into their tween years. While it does getting better, picky eating I have learned over the years is just who they are.

So you could imagine my surprise when they gobbled this Baked Breaded Cauliflower Recipe right up. I mean, my husband and I have to fight them for some when I make this! How crazy is that?

Over Christmas when we visited Dollywood with my in-laws, my Sister-in-Law made a delicious fried cauliflower side dish that my mother-in-law used to make. It was a lot of work and a lot of frying!

This Baked Breaded Cauliflower is baked in the oven, has no eggs and only a little bit of oil. Making it not only easy, but much healthier too. Another healthy alternative is air fryer cauliflower.

This recipe couldn’t get any easier either. You literally chop the cauliflower, place the florets into a resealable bag, season and coat and bake on a baking sheet.
