These are so good! This is a super simply recipe that’s been in my family for a long time. While these are fried, you’re still getting lots of protein from the eggs AND you’re getting your intake of veggies! Who says you can’t have it all? I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
3 eggs, whisked
½ cup flour
1 head of cauliflower, washed and separated
1 cup of vegetable oil
1. Heat vegetable oil in skillet.
2. Dip each cauliflower into the flour mixture, then into the egg. Fry a few at a time until golden brown.
3. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels before serving. Salt and pepper to taste.
The first thing I learned how to cook were eggs. Once I got this down I tried a bunch of different variations with eggs. That’s all I knew how to cook when I was a kid but it was exciting because I got to use different ingredients every time to change it up.
I’ve come a long way since then but that still happens with me with new recipes that I’ve never cooked before. I’m always looking to change a traditional recipe by mixing it up with different ingredients.
I like eggs because they are so versatile…you can cook them so many ways and you can put anything you want in them.
When I have a few people over at my house for breakfast and one person wants sunny side up, the other scrambled and someone else a frittata, I know I can make it work. Eggs are a crowd pleaser all around.

Frittata with Tomatoes and Scallions
4 large eggs
1 cup diced scallions
4 small – medium sized tomatoes, diced
½ stick of butter
½ cup diced parsley
½ stick of butter
salt and pepper
Whisk the eggs, salt and pepper in a bowl and set aside. Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the tomatoes and sauté until tender. Raise the heat to medium-high and add the scallions, parsley and sauté. Pour the egg mixture over and cook for a few minutes until the eggs start to set. Reduce heat and cook until the frittata is set. Place cover on and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Using a spatula, loosen the frittata from skillet and slide the frittata onto a plate.
