Bang Bang Cauliflower on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Note: This recipe was developed using the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. If you are cooking using the Char-Broil Smoker-Roaster Grill you should cook with the lid open and the temperature set to High. You might also need to adjust the cooking time.

Since I picked up a cooking rack for my Char-Broil Big Easy I’ve been able to cook all sorts of dishes that I used to have to reserve for indoor cooking. I love being able to cook an entire meal outdoors, and that means sides too. And not just your usual outdoor sides like corn-on-the-cob, or grilled veggies. This bang bang cauliflower dish cooks up in less than 40 minutes. The breading gives the florets just a bit of crunch. And the dipping sauce? Fantastic. Creamy, with just a hint of a spicy kick.

Depending on conditions, you may have to rotate the pans in the Big Easy as the cauliflower cooks so that each one cooks evenly. If you don’t have a cooking rack you can use the Bunk Bed Basket from Char-Broil, but you won’t be able to cook quite as much cauliflower at once. Whatever you do, do not over-crowd the florets or they will not cook completely.

Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower cut into bite-sized florets
  • 3 cups bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • parsley chopped, for garnish (optional)

For the dipping sauce

Instructions

  • Fire up your Big Easy.
  • Combine bread crumbs and salt in a pie plate.
  • Place eggs into another pie plate.
  • Working in batches, roll cauliflower florets in the egg. Shake off excess then roll in the bread crumbs. Transfer to the pie pans for the Big Easy.
  • Cook in the Big Easy for 20-25 minutes. Keep an eye on the pans on the lower levels as they may brown quicker. I had to rotate my trays after 15 minutes to get nice even cooking.
  • Remove and let cool slightly before garnishing and serving with the dipping sauce.

For the dipping sauce

  • Whisk together all ingredients.

Notes

The best way to cook the cauliflower is to use a Big Easy Cooking Rack. Replace the racks with 9″ pie pans, or wrap the racks in foil.
