Sooooo good! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that the temp seemed a bit too high for the cook time, when we do this again (which will be very soon) we'll try 350 and make sure to use bigger pieces. Some of mine were too small and the cauliflower pretty much disappeared (which made for little pieces of very tasty deep fried batter, danger :) . Thanks for sharing a perfect combination of flavors and for getting my 5 year old to eat cauliflower!

This is a GREAT recipe! We were doing the cauliflower with chicken wings and dipped the last half dozen wings in the egg and powder and deep fried them. OUTSTANDING!!! Great for both.

Fantastic, even kids who don't like cauliflower ate heaps. I didn't have all the herbs but used what I had, will be doing this recipe loads. I tried to serve this with roast lamb, well what was left as they were all eating it up as I was serving, a huge hit and also a great finger food.

I can't wait to try out this recipe. I grew up in upstate NY and always ate deep fried cauliflower when my mother took us to Bernie Murray's for chicken wings. You have to try these with Cocktail Sauce it's the best!

We enjoyed this recipe very much! I changed it just a bit. I used three eggs and about three times the milk. It came out very light and very delicate flavor definitely doing again.

One other change was we put all the spices in with the wet ingredients then floured.

Very good. I have an electric stove & set the temp. knob between 6 & 7. FYI in case you don't have a fry thermometer.

This is sooo good. I also grew up going to Bernie Murrays and getting this and wings! I live in Virginia now and they don't make it anywhere down here. I found this recipe and made it for my friend, who also grew up in Elmira, NY, and had this at many restaurants. She was quite impressed, and loved it. Her husband who hates cauliflower, also loved it. It is really good.

My family has been frying cauliflower for close to 100 years so I would make several suggestions. Cut the cauliflower into tennis ball size chunks. Steam until a fork will barely go in. Cool quickly, you don't want mushy cauliflower. Mix eggs with a cup of milk. Dip in caulf. and roll in flour seasoned with salt, pepper, cayenne. Fry in hot oil. Serve while still hot. Small children will think it's fried chicken and ask for more.

Definitely not spicy enough. I added 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper and needed more. Plus for one full head of cauliflower need to double recipe for both egg mixture and flour mixture.

loved this recipe, been looking for one for a while that actually works and tastes good. Have even thought of trying other veggies now to, the only thing is I will add a little more ingredients and leave out the cayenne, being I don't like spicy food. Thanks so much for this recipe.
