Recipe CourseAppetizer


  • 1/2 head cauliflower, cut into bite sized florets
  • 1 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 3/4 cup finely ground Parmesan cheese
  • 2 large eggs, whisked


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Add panko and cheese to a large bowl and then mix together until thoroughly combined. 

    Pro Tip: You can use shredded Parmesan cheese and put it through a food processor until the crumbs are the same size as the panko bread crumbs.

  3. Dip cauliflower in egg mixture and then shake a few times so that excess egg drips off. You don't want to dampen your breadcrumbs with excess egg because then they won't stick to the cauliflower. 

  4. Roll in bread crumb mixture until fully coated and place on a baking sheet . You may need to press on the coating to help get it to stick to the cauliflower bites. Repeat until all cauliflower is coated. 

    Note: The Kikkoman brand for panko crumbs is preferred for even baking. 

  5. Bake for about 20-25 minutes until coating is a dark golden brown and crunchy.

Having veggies as a snack is so much better than your typical junk food available today and with yummy options like this why would you want anything else? Putting parmesan in the food processor is a great idea so they will blend in better with the breadcrumbs and I love that these are baked and not fried. Do you think this would work out the same with broccoli as well as cauliflower?

This Snack-Worthy Parmesan Cauliflower Bites are great finger food to serve in parties. We've always loved cauliflower and parmesan but I've never tried them together in a recipe like this. This recipe is so exciting, a great conversation piece among the guests, aside from being a healthy snack food. Can't wait to try it at home.

I love the simplicity of this Snack-Worthy Parmesan Cauliflower Bites recipe. It's great for those snack cravings that come upon you. They are quick and easy to make, and in no time at all you have a healthy solution to satisfy that urge to cheat. I indulge on these, not only as a snack, but as a side dish for dinner.

I love this recipe. It's a great way to snack and not feel too bad about what you're eating. Yum!

These cauliflower bites look so yummy. I do like cauliflower but it is nice to see them cooked differently. I think adding cheese to the breadcrumbs is a nice twist too and I like the fact that these are baked and not fried. Imagine them served with a nice creamy dipping sauce?

This looks so tasty! I've made cauliflower bites before, but I've never made Parmesan ones. I love that it's only four ingredients, too. Super budget friendly

YUM! I would enjoy dipping these in ranch dressing (not the healthiest) or in buffalo sauce.

I love that cauliflower can be used for so many recipes! The vegetable adds a healthy spin to traditionally unhealthy recipes.
