Broccoli Bites

You know what's intimidating when you're a kid? An enormous, MONSTROUS pile of green veggies! In actuality, it's a tablespoon of health from a desperate parent who's tired of seeing their child consume chicken nuggets like it's an Olympic sport. These broccoli bites are a delicious break from Green Monotony!

40 mins

SERVES 3 a 4

INGREDIENTS

● 1/2 lb broccoli (fresh or frozen)


● 1/4 yellow onion


● 1c Italian breadcrumbs


● 1 egg


● 1/2 cup parmesan cheese


● Salt and pepper to taste


● Small slice of butter

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350.


Steam broccoli until tender (about 5min) and drain off the water.


Chop onion as finely as your patience/skill will allow.


Add broccoli, onion, bread crumbs, and egg to a mixing bowl.


Stir the contents and mash up the broccoli until the mixture is uniform.


Now, add the parmesan cheese and fold it into the mixture.


Line a baking pan with parchment paper or foil, and coat lightly with butter.


Scoop the mixture into balls (1 inch diameter) and place them on the pan about 1 inch apart.


Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and serve after cooling just a bit.


(Note: If you want to make smaller bites for smaller kids, take 5 minutes off the cook time.)
