    this was delicious! didnt change hardly anything. maybe added some extra spices for the breading but prettt darn close. i loved it with the buffalo sauce.

    Little less breading stuck than I would have liked. Also, had to double the buffalo sauce to cover everything. Other than that....Great!

    This is amazing I sprayed mine with avocado oil, just to insure it didn’t dry out (: I used Panko style breadcrumbs because I didn’t have corn flakes. I also put Cayenne in the panko so it had a spicy base . It came out amazing . Boys didn’t even miss the meat tonight .

    Turned out great paired it with a salad and baked sweet potato fries. It was crispy, spicy and satisfying.Used recipe exactly as is, thought the flax seed mixture was a little watery but it still worked well. Will recommend.

    THIS WAS SO GOOD! I used whole wheat flour and frozen cauliflower and it turned out great. They were VERY spicy but I thoroughly enjoyed. Will make again!

    This turned out very well, crispy and flavorful. I didn't have cornflakes so I used panko which may be better. Would definitely make again!

    Not as good as I was hoping. I think the corn flakes gave it a weird flavor. If I cook it again I will use breadcrumbs. i will also use a different hot sauce as the one in the recipe was not my favorite and too spicy for my liking.

    This recipe was amazing, we ate it with side salad and it came out perfect. It can get messy. I didn't use a food processor for the corn flakes, but instead I used a bag. The crust is basically perfect. Even without buffalo sauce.

    i followed the video along while i was cooking and it still didnt turn out how it is in the picture. the crust came off and just tasted like season-less cauliflower. It was very messy i didnt get the results i wanted plus i had to clean up the meas

    I really loved this recipe. I put just a little bit of spray olive oil before put them in the oven. I flipped them at the middle time of cooking, and added more olive oil. Also I added the paprika, pepper and salt in the flour, not in the corn flakes.

    Very good! I didn’t put the sauce on the cauliflower, just used it as a dip.

    I tried it and it was...edible. My results didn't look like the picture but only because I didn't have any Franks Red Hot. I always have a bottle on hand but I guess I put that $#!+ on everything and ran out. Tried to substitute with Texas Pete but naaaah. 😔

    I really loved them, it’s just they were a little to hard in the center even after putting it in the oven for the recommended time. But overall I really enjoyed this recipe!!
