Breaded Cauliflower

Meet the Cook: My mother gets the credit for this delicious dish, which is a mainstay at our house. It can be an appetizer or side dish...and is wonderful served with turkey, roast beef and ham. My husband, our teenage son, Daniel, and I live on a country acreage. I enjoy gardening and collecting cookbooks. -Sandra Furman-Krajewski, Amsterdam, New York
