Everyone will love this healthy alternative to potato tots! This recipe uses 2 full cups of broccoli, making sure your comfort food is fueling your body too!
2 cups uncooked broccoli
1 large egg
1/4 cup diced yellow onion
1/3 cup cheddar cheese
1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/3 cup italian breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Prepare a baking sheet with a thin layer of oil or line with parchment paper and set aside.
Blanch the broccoli in boiling water for 1 minute then remove and shock with cold tap water to stop the cooking process. Drain well.
Chop broccoli finely and mix with egg, onions, cheddar, breadcrumbs, and seasoning. Scoop about 1 1/2 tablespoons of mix using a cookie scoop or your hands and gently press between your hands into a firm ball then shape into a tater-tot shape. Place on pan.
Bake until golden brown and crispy, 18-24 minutes, turning half way. Remove from the oven and dip in hot sauce or ketchup!
