Broccoli Cheese Bites…YUM!

One of my favorite courses of a meal is appetizers.  I like the idea of a bunch of different options where you can have a few tastes of each.  Last week, my friend, Jen and I went out to dinner at Barbounia (http://barbounia.com) and ordered a whole bunch of appetizers to share and it was perfectly delicious!

Today, I am sharing one of my favorite appetizers that is super fast and easy to make and it is usually a big hit!  I personally love broccoli, my favorite pizza is Broccoli with Ricotta and fresh garlic.  So, when I saw this recipe on Pinterest, I knew I had to try it.  This recipe comes from http://www.staceysnacksonline.com/2011/01/broccoli-bites-for-kids.html, and is just so yummy.

Here it is:

16 oz. package of frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and drained of liquid (I used fresh steamed broccoli)
1 1/2 cup of grated cheddar cheese
3 eggs
salt & pepper
1 cup of seasoned Italian breadcrumbs

Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl.

With your hands, form small patties and lay on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake at 375F for 25 minutes, turning the patties after the first 15 minutes.

Let cool and enjoy!

Thanks for reading and have a fun day 🙂

Here is my picture of the day…
