A Happy Little Side Dish!

Oh my here I go again with the deep frying.

"But you don't understaaaaand............this time it's gonna be DIFFERENT.......this time it's gonna be SPECIAL!!!!"

Nope, not really, it's your regular deep frying again! It's just such a simple way to make a really tastey side dish. Check it out:
1 large head of cauliflower
2 eggs
1/2 c milk
1 c dried bread crumbs
Oil for deep frying
Salt to taste
Wash & cut the cauliflower. (Don't you just hate those little bits of "business" all over the cutting board when you cut cauliflower or brocolli? Cut from the underside not the top of the bunch!) Steam or boil the cauliflower.

Dip in egg/milk mixture, coat w/ bread crumbs & leave to set for at least 1/2 hr. (I do this way in advance & then put it in the fridge till I'm gonna use it)
Deep fry on medium heat till golden brown. Eat salted & HOT!! Or keep in a heated oven to keep them crisp. I'm telling kinda freaks you out how good cauliflower tastes like this.

Ah, but on special occasions (I think u made it as a side dish for Christmas dinner a couple times?) they r so worth the unhealthiness! I didn't know that u salted them after frying, tho'.
