Title: June Meyer's Hungarian Style Cauliflower or Broccoli (Karfio
Yield: 4 To 6
Categories: Hungary, Vegetables

Ingredients:

Head of cauliflower
Pot of salted water
1/4 lb Butter
1 c Bread crumbs
1/8 ts Salt


We always had a copious amount of homemade breadcrumbs made from the bread
that was baked in a large turkey roaster. The dried bread was stored in a
paper bag in the oven. When ever we needed crumbs for Apple Strudel, fried
chicken, Wiener Schnitzel, Hungarian Hamburgers, cauliflower or broccoli we
would grate the hard bread on the side of the grater to make as much as we
needed. The best crumbs are the kind you make your self from good white
bread. The crumbs should be large, not ground to a sand like texture.
Cauliflower or broccoli was served in this simple but very flavorful way.
Regards, June Meyer.
