Broccoli Tots

This recipe was one I had wished I had doubled or tripled when we sat down to dinner.  They were tasty little poppers, and E loved them almost as much as Frog Prince and I did. 


We used them atop our tater tot hotdish recipe, and munched on them as a snack. 


Broccoli Tots – Adapted from Skinny Taste


  • 2 C broccoli (fresh) or 12 oz broccoli (frozen)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 T minced onion
  • 1/2 C shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 C whole wheat panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning


Bring a pot of water to a boil.  Add in broccoli and boil for 1-2 minutes.  Drain and rinse with cold water.  Then, chop the broccoli into small pieces. 

Add 1 egg , 1 Tminced onion and 1/2 C shredded cheese to a large bowl.  Mix in the broccoli, 1/2 C panko and spices (salt, pepper and Italian seasoning).

Spoon 1 T of mixture into your hand and shape into a tater-tot.  Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. 

Bake at 400 for 18-20 minutes.   Ideally, you’ll want to flip these over once during cooking, but I didn’t and they still tasted great. 


Serve warm.  Enjoy!


  1. I make these with zucchini and you don't have to cook it first but you have to squeeze the water out as much as you can after you chop it fine. Probably very similar to what you've made here. Yummy!
