June Meyer's Authentic Hungarian Style
Cauliflower or Broccoli

(Magyaros karfiol vagy brakoli)



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.
