Kelly B’s Cheesy Bacon Cauliflower Bites, modified from WWW.savorylotus.com
Why I Love This Recipe
I found this recipe on a piece of paper, my great grandma, who passed it down to my grandma, and she passed it down to me. I make them all the time because they are so delicious! They are just about bursting with a bacony flavor in a crispy little muffin. I chose this recipe because I think that people should try bacon and cauliflower together more often. CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: In addition to the pure substance and mixtures shown below, the cauliflower mixture, the batter after the rest of the ingredients are added, and the finished muffins are all heterogeneous mixtures. The butter warming up after it is taken out of the refrigerator, and the ”batter” being formed into little circle shapes due to the pan are both physical changes. The muffins rising up in the oven and the smell of the cooked muffins, and the muffins turning golden brown are all clues to chemical changes.
