Buffalo chicken wings are a staple of game day and family get-togethers. But let’s be honest: the best part of buffalo wings is the sauce. The same goes for ranch dressing, which you can use to top everything from salads to sandwiches. So why not combine these two delicious sauces into one?
That’s exactly what we did with our Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower. It takes roasting a head of cauliflower until tender, tossing it with buffalo sauce, and then baking again until all the liquid evaporates into an amazing crispy coating that drips over your fingers as you eat it!
What is Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower?
Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower is a spicy, crunchy version of the classic buffalo wing. It’s made by dipping bite-size cauliflower florets into a mixture of melted butter, hot sauce, and garlic powder before baking them until they’re browned and crispy.
The key to making this dish amazing is the hot sauce—don’t use Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (or any other store-bought brand) because it contains high fructose corn syrup and other additives that will make your roasted buffalo cauliflower taste terrible! Instead, my recipe for Homemade Buffalo Sauce is the best option for homemade buffalo sauce.
What is Ranch dressing?
Ranch dressing is a creamy dressing made with buttermilk and mayonnaise. It typically has a tangy flavor, making it ideal for salads and dips. The ranch dressing is also an essential part of this video’s Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe.
Ranch dressing is just one type of salad dressing you can find on your grocery store shelf, but it’s one of the most popular. Your local supermarket probably has many different options, so if you want to try something new, check out their selection!
