Broccoli Cheese Patties

Oh My Gosh! I think this is my new favorite way to eat broccoli. Where has this recipe been all of my life? I would of become a vegetarian based on this recipe alone. Nah, I still love me some steak. So here it is, you could use fresh broccoli if you wanted but I really liked the texture of the frozen broccoli in this recipe. Be sure to take your broccoli out to let it thaw. You need to get as much of the water out as you can.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 2 cloves garlic - minced
  • 1/2 onion - chopped
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag frozen broccoli - defrosted
  • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs - beaten
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Saute the onions and garlic in the butter until translucent.
  2. Put defrosted broccoli in a strainer for 30 minutes (longer if still frozen) in the sink. Blot well and put on a cutting board to chop the broccoli into smaller pieces.
  3. Beat eggs in a mixing bowl. Add breadcrumbs, cheeses, salt and pepper. Mix well. Add broccoli and onion mixture. Mix well.
  4. On a cookie sheet use the 1 teaspoon vegetable oil and grease the cookie sheet. Form patties, they are about 1/2 cup each. I used a large scoop.
