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!
