With this in mind, when I stumbled across a recipe for "Broccoli Cheese Bites" I could not resist giving them a go! They looked delicious and easy enough to make - and they were both. Because it was kind of an experiment to see if they were any good, I made them just for me and had a bunch leftover. I took a few to work the next day and microwaved them for a light healthy lunch - they were just as good then too which was awesome! I could definitely see making them as a side sometime or just the way I did, to take to work.
I followed the original recipe almost exactly except for a few modifications with the ingredients - I steamed broccoli florets instead of buying frozen, and I used shredded part-skim mozzarella instead of cheddar cheese. Also they called for seasoned Italian breadcrumbs, which I couldn't find, so I made due with regular ones. The ingredients are:
- I steamed up and chopped a full (500g) bag of broccoli florets
- 1 1/2 cups of shredded part-skim mozzarella
- 3 eggs
- Salt and pepper
- 1 cup of breadcrumbs
