Cheesy Broccoli Bites

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup broccoli
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 2/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup spring onion, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cloves of crushed garlic

Method

  1. Break the broccoli head into florets and add them to your pan of boiling water. Cover with a lid and leave to cook until soft (about 8 minutes)
  2. Chop the broccoli finely and add the cheese, garlic, spring onion, breadcrumbs, eggs, salt and black pepper and mix well.
  3. Preheat your oven to 180°C and allow your mixture to cool for approximately 15-20 minutes.
  4. Cover your baking tray with a baking sheet and shape small balls out of the broccoli mixture. (Makes roughly 18 balls, depending on the size)
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, until lightly golden brown – turning them on the other side half the way through baking.
  6. Pop these bite-sized treats into your lunchbox. If you’d like, you can even serve them with your favourite dipping sauce!
