Broccoli Tots

So I think we all know that I am not a professional photographer, but I REALLY wanted to share this recipe with you all because it was so easy and extremly tasty! As you may or may not know, Jd enjoys cooking as well as finding crazy, unique recipes for us to try. I am always a little more hesitant because (I guess I am a picky eater?) I try to maintain a healthy diet and stay awak from certain ingredients, oh and I am a pescetarian so there's that too.

When Jd first mentioned this recipe, he called it 'Cheesey Broccoli Tater Tots' and I immediately dismissed the idea thinking it would be extremely unhealthy for us (we are trying to get in better shape this summer FYI). However, he kept bringing it up and finally convinced me to make this as a side dish/appetitzer for dinner one night. To my surprise, it was less cheesey and more broccoli-y! They tasted AMAZING and they were really light so I recommend them anyone and everyone - whether you're on a diet or not! I wish we had doublec the recipe because we ate all of them that night during dinner.

Enough of my rambling, try them out using the recipe below.

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Brush a baking sheet with the vegetable oil. 

Blanch the broccoli in boiling water for 1 minute. Immediately put under cold tap water to stop the broccoli from further cooking.

Chop finely and mix throughly with the egg, onions, cheddar, and breadcrumbs. Season with salt and pepper. Make little tot's with you hands and place on your already oiled backing sheet to cook.

Bake until golden brown and crispy, 18-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch of broccoli
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 2/3 cup of your favorite cheese 
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
