Spicy BBQ Cauliflower Buffalo “Wings”

Spicy BBQ Cauliflower Buffalo Wings big game super bowl appetizer best delicious

These Spicy BBQ Cauliflower Buffalo “Wings” are the PERFECT appetizer for Sunday’s Big Game! We couldn’t stop eating these and if Andrew wasn’t filming the video for this, he wouldn’t have known that they weren’t chicken! They’re sweet, savory, so flavorful, and packed with the perfect amount of heat. I love this recipe because the batter and breadcrumbs give every bite the perfect crunch. Not to mention, they’re a bit healthier than your traditional buffalo wings. Hope you love them as much as we do! Enjoy!
