Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower

I have always been a fan of cauliflower, but to be honest I never liked it cooked. The way I grew up in the south veggies were always cooked to death and for some veggies that is yummy but for cauliflower not so much. I had tried it many different ways and it was always slimy and mushy so I kinda gave up on it unless it was raw in a salad. I had heard of different recipes such as cauliflower mash so I thought it was time that I try again. I have been roasting veggies a lot lately such as green beans and broccoli so I thought why not. I went on a quest to find a recipe and tried a few different ones but they all were missing something. Through trial and error this is what I came up with. The first time I served this to my kids in the place of fries they thought I was crazy. Then they tasted it and have been loving it ever since. I hope you enjoy!!! As for the picture, lets just say I really need a new camera! 

Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower

1 head of cauliflower cut into bite sized pieces (I usually cut off the stems)
1/4 cup of olive oil (you really need just enough to cover the cauliflower so the rest of the ingredients stick)
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 Tbs garlic powder
salt to taste

Preheat oven to 400.
In a large bowl toss all of the ingredients together making sure that each piece is coated well.
Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 15-20 minutes, until golden brown like below.
