Laurie's Tip

Thanks to my friend, Heather Murphy for this idea!  The goal was to come up with a healthy Super Bowl snack…well my friend, this is certainly it!  Even if you are not a fan of cauliflower (like my husband) I think you will still like this!  Baking it and breading it really changes the flavor.  Perfect for a healthy appetizer, something different and delish!
