These Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites with Blue Cheese are a delicious twist on a classic recipe. They’re so good that you won’t even miss the wings!
This Buffalo Cauliflower was inspired by one of my favorite recent meals!
Over the summer, my husband and I took a day trip up the Hudson Valley.
With no car, it’s pretty rare that we get out of NYC. So it was a real treat to spend the day exploring small towns and taking in the beautiful scenery.
Of course, no road trip would be complete without some good food. We stopped in Nyack around lunchtime, and after doing a little walking around, it was time to eat!
Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites with Blue Cheese
We ate our lunch at Prohibition River and had a great meal, the highlight of which was the Buffalo Cauliflower. It was so good!
I’m not a meat eater, so I don’t eat wings. My husband loves wings though, and even he thought the cauliflower was delicious.
So of course, I had to recreate the recipe once we returned home.
These Buffalo Cauliflower Bites are packed with flavor, spicy, and so delicious … and the blue cheese is the perfect finishing touch!

- 1 large head cauliflower

- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 large garlic clove, minced
- 1/2 cup Frank's Original Red Hot Cayenne Pepper Sauce
- 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Cut cauliflower into large florets. Place in a large bowl and toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Spread cauliflower on a baking sheet in a single layer. (Use two pans if one is too crowded.)
Roast cauliflower for 10 minutes. Flip, then bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, or until browned on bottom.
While cauliflower is roasting, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.
Add garlic to butter and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Stir hot sauce and sriracha into butter and mix well. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat. Set aside.
When cauliflower is finished roasting, remove from oven and return to the bowl.
Toss cauliflower with buffalo sauce and then return it to the baking sheet.
Roast cauliflower for an additional 5 to 7 minutes, or until hot and browned.
Place baby lettuce on a plate, top with cauliflower, and sprinkle with blue cheese.
Serve immediately. Enjoy!
