I love buffalo wings so much but I really can't be eating all that much fried chicken dunked in fatty sauces all the time. Bring on the buffalo cauliflower! This alternative is delicious and a fair bit better for you. Cauliflower is packed with vitamins, protein, and fiber.

I made this one in an air fryer but have added instructions for the oven. Works well in the toaster oven, too!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • ranch or bleu cheese dipping sauce (I used yogurt ranch)


  1. If you are using an oven, preheat it to 400 F. To get your cauliflower segments to stay together nicely and not crumble, first cut in half vertically.

  3. Cut again to make quarters, then cut from the center stalk outward into smaller bits to make little tree-like formations.
  4. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter for 30 seconds.
  5. Add the hot sauce to the butter, mix well.
  6. Dip each floret in the sauce mixture, coating as much as possible but let the excess sauce drip back into the bowl.

  8. Dunk the dipped floret in the breadcrumb and salt mixture.
  9. Place floret in air fryer basket, or greased baking sheet if you're using an oven.
  10. If you're using an air fryer, theres no need to use a single layer. If you're using an oven, lay in a single layer. Air fry at 350 F (do not preheat) for 15 to 20 minutes, or bake in oven at 400 F for 20 minutes.
