With a trusty droid by your side, there’s nothing you can’t accomplish. BB-8 rolled into our hearts in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and has maintained its status as most-beloved round droid ever since.
These little BB-8 toasts replace traditional bread with a homemade cauliflower alternative. Quick to make, they’re a tasty meal anytime of the day. The fact that they resemble the spherical little astromech somehow makes them even tastier.
