This is very simple side dish. The origin of this meal is Austrian and the recipes are welcomed in my family since – ever. I will submit only cauliflower recipe, but the system is the same with other vegetables.


  1. Put cauliflower in hot water, add salt and cook until soft.
  2. Melt butter in a pan, add bread crumbs and fry it until dark brown (do not burn it).
  3. Take out cauliflower cut it in pieces and put it into hot pan with butter and bread crumbs. Fry it just 2-4 minutes and mix gently to cover with bread crumbs.
  4. Before serving, add sour cream.
  5. You can also eat it without sour cream, so just put the sour cream jar on the table. Serve with roasted meat.
  6. The same procedure is with French beans or Brussels sprouts, but make sure to put green vegetables into hot water – that will keep green colour.
