Cheesy Broccoli Nuggets

Happy Saturday! Hope you all are enjoying your weekend, I know we are! I’ve been wanting to try this new recipe and finally had time to give it a shot tonight 🙂

I found this recipe Laura Fuentes blog, only I used mozzarella cheese since we were out of cheddar but it was still delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 16 oz bag of broccoli florets, thawed
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese (any type will work!)
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

I know the pictures might not make this dish look all that appetizing but really, just give it a shot and you’ll be surprised 🙂

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then you need to puree the broccoli florets in the food processor.

Next, I put the broccoli into a mixing bowl and added the eggs, bread crumbs, cheese, and seasonings. Mix it on low until well combined.

Now, use an ice cream scoop to make the individual nuggets. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I tried to flatten them a touch so they were all roughly the same height and size.

Bake them at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. These make for a delicious meal or even a healthy snack! This recipe made over 30 nuggets so there will be plenty of leftovers to enjoy 🙂
