In planning the St Patrick's menu, I decide to use the Broccoli I had in my refrigerator to make what I called Broccoli bites using broccoli, onion, flour, egg and parmesan cheese.
Since my Granddaughter does not eat vegetables, I decided to make them into small balls. However, she developed pink eye and the celebration meal was cancelled. I had placed the broccoli balls on parchment for baking, so I froze them.
Last night, I pulled them out for supper. I baked them at 400 until golden brown, about 30 to 40 mins as they were frozen.
2 stocks of broccoli, grated
1/2 white onion finely chopped
1/2 c Parmesan Cheese (one could use other shredded cheese)
1/4 cup flour, add more if needed to form a ball
Roll balls in panko or bread crumbs, then dusted them with smoky paprika.
Bake for 20 minutes or until golden at 375 degrees.
I watched my granddaughter dipping the bites in a Ranch dressing and eating the appetizer without a complaint! I think a cheesy dip would be awesome!
