Servings: 4
Author: Oven Struck


  • 1 whole head of cauliflower
  • 1 stick 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4-1/2 cup Italian style breadcrumbs
  • Parsley to taste


  • Over medium-low heat, place one stick of unsalted butter into a light colored pan. Let the water evaporate and milk solids start to form. Remove from heat and transfer into a separate container.
  • Clean and remove stalk from whole head of cauliflower, keeping the cauliflower intact.
  • In an oven safe pan, place the cauliflower right side up and pour butter over the cauliflower.
  • Pour breadcrumbs over the cauliflower.
  • Place in the middle of oven and roast for 1 1/2 hours. Until a toothpick inserted pushes through the vegetable with ease.
  • Remove from oven and add fresh parsley.
  • Slice into wedges, like a pizza and enjoy!
  • **NOTE: You can spoon the butter that collects in the bottom of the pan over the cauliflower while roasting.
