“This recipe was originally written for cauliflower, but I had just purchased a mixed bag of fresh broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower and decided to try it with the broccoli and cauliflowerl. I liked the cauliflower but fell in love with the broccoli so here it is for safe keeping. Like the saying goes, just about anything fried is good, and this is good!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in deep fryer or large pot on stove to 350° Fahrenheit
  2. Beat eggs and milk together in a bowl. Pour milk and egg wash in a ziplock bag.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients (except broccoli) in a separate ziplock bag; close the bag and shake thoroughly to mix. (Cajun or Creole seasonings: Zatarain's or Tony Chachere's, to taste or 1 teaspoon).
  4. Shake and soak broccoli pieces in egg wash bag for 5 minutes, then place them in flour and seasoning ziplock bag. Shake to coat. Place each coated broccoli piece in hot oil and cook until golden brown. Drain on paper towel.
  5. Best served hot out of the fryer. Serve with condiments of your choice, catsup, hot sauce, or cocktail sauce are my favorite choices.
