How to make it

  • For the cauliflower, wash, trim and cut or seperate the flowerettes into bite-size pieces, then lay the pieces on some papter towelling - you want the pieces to be as free of water as possible before dipping them. I usually lay more paper towels over the top and pat that down gently to absorb any liquid.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk enough milk or half-and-half into the flour to make a batter the consistency of pancake batter.
  • Add seasonings and whisk batter together well, but don't over-mix.
  • (Note: I like to make the batter a few hours ahead of time so the seasonings have a chance to blend in and flavor the batter nicely.)
  • Preheat oil to 375 degrees ( I use my electric skillet - remember to leave room for expansiion when the veggies are added!).
  • Dip cauliflower pieces in batter and let excess batter drip off before putting cauliflower into hot oil (I usually use a slotted spoon for this).
  • Deep fry until golden brown, and drain on paper toweling.
  • Serve immediately with blue cheese dressing for dipping.
  • For the dressing, combine mayonnaise and sour cream together.
  • Stir in vinegar and sugar; blend well.
  • Add garlic and seasonings, mixing to blend all ingredients together.
  • Gently fold in cheese chunks.
  • Chill well. Thin with a bit of half and half or whole milk if dressing is too thick.

    I made this tonight -- my hubby was in the clean plate club and said I should definitely make this one again! Blue cheese dressing is his omnipresent dining companion, so I was pretty sure you had a winner for me with this one! Thanks again!
