Broccoli Cheese Bites

Broccoli seems to be one of those veggies that you either love or hate. It has always been one of my favorite vegetables, especially topped with lots of cheese, but even if you’re not a fan, I think you’re going to really like this recipe, not only because it’s incredibly easy (4 ingredients!!), but these little broccoli cheese bites are really yummy, too.

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Thaw 16 ounces of broccoli (or cook fresh broccoli until soft), and chop into small pieces. Combine your broccoli, 1 cup of Italian bread crumbs, 1-2 cups of cheese, 3 eggs, and the seasoning of your choice (I used about half a teaspoon of garlic salt) into a large bowl.
  2.  Mix together well with a spoon, or just go for it and use your hands.
  3.  Create small patties (the smaller, the crispier they get) and place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes (depending on how large you make your patties), and flip half way through.
  5. Broccoli Cheese Bites right out of the oven. SO GOOD! Kids love these.
  6. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Serve with ranch or your favorite dipping sauce. I made 2 batches, and the first batch was gone before I could get the second batch out of the oven!
