Recipe type: Appetizer or Snack
Serves: 24 Bites
Ingredients
  • 1 head of broccoli, chopped into small florets
  • ½ C. shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ C. shredded Monterey jack cheese
  • ½ C. seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400° and spray mini muffin pan with cooking spray.
  2. Fill a medium saucepan with a few inches of water and bring to a boil. Add the broccoli, cover and reduce heat. Cook for about 6 minutes, stirring a few times, until broccoli is bright green and tender. Drain and allow to cool. Use a paper towel to remove excess water. If you plan to dice the broccoli, do so after it has cooled.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the broccoli, breadcrumbs, cheese, eggs and salt and pepper until well mixed.
  4. Add the mixture to the muffin tin, pressing down with the back of a spoon to pack the mixture tightly in the cups. This will help ensure the baked muffins stay together when you pop them out of the pan.
  5. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes, until golden and crispy around the edges.
  6. Remove from pan and serve hot or at room temp.
Notes
These can be made ahead and reheated in the oven before serving. They can also be frozen and stored up to 3 months, and reheated in the microwave.
