Broccoli Bites for Kids



File this under the Onion Soup Mix Recipe category, though there is no Lipton onion soup mix in site.

I may even serve these at my next dinner party, they were that good!

While babysitting for my 6 year old picky eater niece, I had to come up with a good lunch that would be fun for the two of us to make together.

She is not a big broccoli fan (or any vegetable fan), but I told her we would add melted gooey cheese and form the patties with our hands. She was sold.

Please don't laugh when you read this recipe, it is terrific and easy.
This would be a great vegetarian dinner along with a soup or salad.

I made it my own by adding homemade breadcrumbs and fresh chopped steamed broccoli along with lowfat mozzarella cheese mixed with the cheddar.



Broccoli Cheese Bites (adapted from My Tasty Treasures & WholeSomeBabyFood.com):

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!



Silly rabbit, Trix aren't just for kids!

Wow, beautifully simple! Love it! I have clipped this recipe and look forward to trying it for dinner for the kids. I think they'll eat broccoli happily if it's combined with cheese and shaped in little round balls!

Rachel said...

My kids would go crazy for these...broccoli is their FAVORITE veggie! What a great idea and a fun snack!!!

Steve said...

Stace,
Heck with the kids. I'm making these for myself. Great snack for Superbowl Sunday?

The Japanese Redneck said...

I like that they are not fried.

kat said...

Serve those with a little ranch dip & you've got a perfect snack!

Michele said...

My friend's mom used to make broccoli patties all the time and they were awesome. I think she used bisquick. I'd definitely try these.

blackbookkitchendiaries said...

this sounds fantastic. i need to make some soon. thank you for sharing this post.

A Melbourne Girl said...

YUMM!! I could do these with cauliflower as well right?
Delicious as usual Stacey. Will make them when I get home from the beach

Ciao Chow Linda said...

I'm not laughing at all -this sounds like a great munch for guests - or a wonderful dinner with a salad or soup.

StaceyEsq said...

My 9 year old LOVES broccoli -- this will be a very easy sell! Wish I had a batch ready to eat right now!

Moose said...

Hmmm. I try not to use my oven [long story short, it's hard to do]. I wonder how these would come out in a barely greased non-stick frying pan?

I think I shall find out!

Melissa @IWasBornToCook said...

I'm going to try these...the spinach balls I made over the weekend did NOT go over well with my 2 year old. No surprise there :)

Patsyk said...

This might be the way to get my oldest son to eat broccoli! Can't wait to give it a try!

Noelle Marie said...

So impressed! So easy. Forget the kids, must try for my husband!

ps: was at a dinner party the other night and we were talking about blogs and yours came up- the other girl (food blog lover) and I were immediately bonded. :-)

thanks stacey!

Lisa Faley said...

Awesome idea! I wish I could serve these at the school, but making 600 of them would be a little much.
Definitely will make for my kids though!
Thanks!

The Short (dis)Order Cook said...

Is it wrong to think about how good these would taste fried?

Karen said...

Great idea! I'm going to send this to my daughter for her kids.

Swain said...

I made them two nights ago, with carrot soup, and they were a huge hit, both with adults and kids. My daughter dipped them in ranch dressing. My husband dipped them in his soup. My son, a very picky eater, ate two without a lot of complaining. They were even excellent the next day, I just revived them in a Pam-sprayed skillet.

Definitely want to try them for a party appetizer. These would work as cauliflower bites, too, don't you think?

Oui, Chef said...

These look fun and DELICIOUS! I'll definitely make them with my little ankle biters. - S

Eleanor I. Cook said...

Definitely a great appetizer for adults too. Some kind of dipping sauce such as ranch dressing or a spicy aioli would work well. Yum!
This is a keeper. Like Stacy, I steamed fresh broccoli and then chopped it. I used an extra egg and not as many bread crumbs; had to adjust to get the right consistency to get it to stick together. I also used some feta along with the cheddar - a mix with swiss and cheddar or parmesan would also be good.

thestumbleuponchef said...

Hi! I just wanted to tell you that I used your recipe and posted it on my blog! The broccoli bites were DELICIOUS! You can read about it here:

thanks for the post!

Matt said...

I just made these with Asparagus because I didn't have any broccoli. They turned out the same and tasted great! As a post -graduat student I barely have time to sleep let alone eat well so these are perfect and so easy to make!

Farrell said...

Just to pass this on...I recently saw the results of research that indicate hatred of broccoli is a genetic trait; there is a gene some people have which literally makes broccoli taste revolting to them. It may not be their fault if they don't like these. I'll try 'em though. They look delicious to me!

Lucy @ Lucyeats said...

What a fantastic recipe. I really love broccoli and the addition of cheese can only make them better!

Frozen broccoli? What sort of wizardry is this?

Anonymous said...

not only is this great for 6 year olds, but college kids too! i made these with a bunch of random frozen veggies i had and they are so easy to make a ton of and refrigerate to eat all week. awesome idea :)

Lindsay from Seriously So Delicious said...

I MUST try these soon! And, I think bacon would be a yummy addition. Thanks for sharing! I shared it on my foodie blog, too, and linked back to you. Hope you don't mind!

Janelle said...

I saw these on pinterest days ago and have not gotten them out of my mind. Now, I have friends coming in 2 days, very little food in the house and need a yummy item for lunch! I am making these & cannot wait!!

Thanks for sharing!

How about a vegan alternative?
Something without eggs and that uses veggie shreds instead of dairy cheese?

Can hardly wait to try these. Yum, yum. Really like broccoli.

I made these tonight for my family with a mix of picky eaters: my five year old daughter, my grandfather, and my brother-in-law. They ALL ate them like popcorn! Thank you for a simple and delicious recipe!

Anonymous said...

I happen to have a ton of broccoli and cheese and a dinner party to go to tonight. I would love to make these, but not sure how 16 oz frozen broccoli translates to fresh broccoli. Two cups of chopped fresh seems too little for three eggs. Immediate help, Please!

16 oz. of frozen broccoli is 2 cups of fresh broccoli, chopped.

Good luck!

Yvette @ Delightfully Tacky said...

Going to make these for lunch today! Thankyou!! Stumbled upon you from facebook Cooking for Busy Mums!! Thanks for the recipe - new liker here.. as I am doing baby led feeding with my youngest boy he loves brocolli! (picky 2yr old may like it too!)

Emily Perrone said...

I made these last night -- insanely delish! Even my husband who won't touch broccoli liked them. I didn't have cheddar on hand, so I used a shredded Mexican blend that I had and just rough chopped it down a bit. Also threw in a sprinkle of Parm cheese. So so easy and good!!

Melissa McLemore said...

Thanks for sharing this recipe! We are going to try it tonight! Broccoli is actually my 3 year old and my favorite veggie, but not my hubby! I think we will all be happy with this!

I'm wondering how these taste cold/room temp. Anyone seem to know?

Local Denver Realator said...

Do you happen to know the rough caloric value/serving size for this recipe? Also, have you tried making it with only egg whites and low-fat cheese? I am going to try it like this and I will report back if it turns out well. great post, and thanks for the idea!

This is just what I'm looking for. Thanks for posting this.

I made these last night for a dinner party - and my gosh, they were gone before in 60 seconds. Thanks for the recipe. i altered slightly, added fresh minced garlic and a mixed cheese (cheddar/mozzarella)... steamed the broccoli with the garlic for just a few minutes. This is a fantastic dish that's easy to make.
This one is a winner...

Denver Motorcycle Accident Lawyer said...

I made these and just have to say they are to die for! Thank you so much for the how to!

Little Z. said...

I used to do this all the time when my kid wouldn't eat veggies. To save time (sometimes... not all the time) I would just nuke a bag of frozen veggie mix or whatever I had on hand, and although it's not the best way to cook them, I would saute them in a small amount of olive oil so they got crispy on both sides. they're good hot or cold.

Rachel said...

I just made these, but substituted Parmesan cheese for the breadcrumbs(I don't eat wheat and am low carb). I added hormel real bacon bits. Wow!! Amazing!! These are very similar to an appetizer that is available at a local restaurant in New Orleans called bayou broccoli. I made a version of the sauce that comes with them and it was delicious: 3 tbs honey, I tsp apple cider vinegar, 3 tbs Dijon must, and lots of horseradish. Probably about 6 tbs.

Kaz said...

These look great. I think my toddler will love them. Thanks.

renee said...

These are Genius! I'm not creative in the kitchen, so I need things like this!( and so do my kids:)

I made these for dinner last night. My fiance LOVES broccoli. Me? Not so much. However, this recipe was enjoyed by both of us. Followed recipe exactly with the exception of the type of cheese. We used shredded monterey jack.

This is why I love Pintest. A great, quick, reasonably healthy snack. Added garlic to steamed broccoli, and used combo of cheddar, granda padano and marinated fetta and panko breadcrumbs seasoned with italian herbs. Fantastic. Thanks so much for sharing.

I made them tonight...and actually nobody in my family liked them. Very bland. Definitely would season them up IF i made again.

I just made this tonight with zucchini and can't wait to try with broccoli. Thanks, for the idea, it's a great substitute for tater tots, fries etc!

furpurr said...

someone mentioned dipping these in ranch...WHY?!? they are SO DELICIOUS as is!! i made this for hubby & me last month; they look odd, but WOW they are SO VERY GOOD!!!! i did add a bit more cheese {8 oz pkg!}, & about 1/4 again as much bread crumbs as called for; they seemed to hold together better after that. but the 'turn' time & cook time were perfect...& so were these!! YUM!!!!

Anonymous said...

I just made these-- added half a sautéed onion for extra flavor. Didn't want to bother forming the patties so I scooped the mixture into 12 well greased muffin tins. Baked for 22 min in my convection oven. Perfect veggie cups! Really yummy. Thanks the recipe!

Anonymous said...

Made these over the weekend, I added salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder, they were yummy! I used fresh steamed brocolli and all cheddar cheese...next time i will grate some parmesan and add fresh garlic to the mix for more flavor! This is a great recipe, just needs seasoning added ;)!

i think these look great i will definitely try them. I think using rice in place of the bread crumbs would also be very good in this recipe. think i will try it... thanks for sharing

Sounds soooooooooo good but I wonder if just egg whites instead of whole eggs would work.

Great recipe! I love broccoli anyway but this may help my little one like it too.

Just made these and am eating them as I speak! I made a few adjustments, added parm cheese and extra seasoning including garlic salt and onion salt along with a few others! Very tasty! Only a little dry, maybe less breadcrumbs next time? Otherwise amazing!!!

DELICIOUS!! I saw this on Pinterest a few days ago and couldn't wait to try this recipe! I followed it along with some of the commented suggestions. I added bacon bits, minced garlic, I used cheese I had on hand, and I used egg whites, then topped with a sprinkle of parmesean cheese before baking. They came out SO good!! I will save and use this recipe again and again!! Thanks for sharing it!! And thanks to all the commented suggestions... I can't wait to try it with the Dijon/horseradish dip! Thanks again!! :-d

Absolutely fantastic!

Beautiful Sweets said...

These look absolutely fantastic! The kids are getting these this weekend. Won't eat your broccoli hey? We'll see!

Lisa said...

Never mind "for kids". I want to make these for me! They look incredible!

Tracy Cochran said...

Bland? You're crazy! Only thing I can think of that would have made them bland would be if they used mild cheddar or other bland cheese. Extra sharp cheddar is the way to go!

Anonymous said...

Thanks for this recipe! Tried it tonight with half cheddar, half Parmesan, wonderful!

This sounds great! How many does this recipe make? Should I double it if I bring it to a party?

My 2 year old who hates broccoli ate these right up! I did too. They are a tiny bit on the dry side, but otherwise tasty. And I'm not a fan of broccoli either!

Sumana Sen said...

This must be yummy! I did not have either broccoli or breadcrumbs on hand so I grated some steamed mixed veggies + a little bit of onion in the FP and subbed it for the brocolli. I used AP flour + a little less than a teaspoon of baking powder instead of the breadcrumbs and poured the mix in muffin cups. It was a wonderful savory muffin that my toddler boys loved. Thank you for the lovely recipe - I hope to try the original pretty soon!

Anonymous said...

I tried making these, they sounded delicious! Unfortunately, they were so horrible I couldn't even make them edible by drowning them in ranch! I followed the directions, but if I ever attempt them again, I'm going to tweak it for sure!

Joan Kleyh said...

I have made these so many times, that I should have shares in some broccoli farm - or in Kraft Foods. These have become a family favorite .

Anonymous said...

Made them last night, and everyone else was right, delicious! Perfect for picky eater kids and adults alike. But my advise is not to use the parchment paper. Halfway through cooking when I was ready to flip them almost everyone was stuck to the parchment paper! I sprayed my baking sheets, did my best to remove all the wax paper from EACH bite, and cooked the rest of the way just fine on the baking sheet. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe!

Looks great! I want to get busy making these for my 1 year old but wanted to know if I could leave the cheese out and have them still turn out good?

Thanks!

Add cooked and diced or shredded chicken and you have a meal.

Lola said...

I should start this with an admission. I am a foodie. Big time! So, when I saw this recipe on Pinterest, I got really excited--all of my favorite things all wrapped up into one (cheese, carbs, and broccoli)!! These little gems looked (and SMELLED!) sooo good, so imagine my disappointment when I didn't like the taste. I found them to be dry and bland. I took it pretty hard, since I had built them up so much in my mind! Thank you for the recipe, though. I'll probably use it as a springboard to create my own.

Anonymous said...

How can anyone say these were bad or they didn't like them?????

It's a simple omelet with broccoli and cheese shaped into patties.

What did you expect them to be? Filet Mignon?

These are easy and delicious!
Stop whining!

I used seasoned breadcrumbs and plenty of salt and pepper and these were a big hit for super bowl sunday!

We served them with ranch dressing and everyone loved them.

Thank you so much for this recipe! After reading the other comments, I added some ranch dressing mix to the bread crumbs and a small amount of feta cheese. Awesome!

Lisa in Texas said...

I read all the comments, some saying these were not good.
HOWEVER, I made them for a party the other night and everyone loved them.
I followed the recipe from the Baby Food website (original post) and seasoned w/ plenty of salt & pepper.
That's all.
These were easy, healthy and GOOD!
Not culinary masterpieces, just good, easy food!
Loved them. Thank you! Will be making them again. (reminded me of Pepperidge Farm spinach balls that my mom used to make).

Amazing!!! I don't know why I haven't made these before! Mine held together great and I don't think they are bland at all! Then again I usually eat healthier more "bland" and less MSG fatty salty foods too.

Sounds great! Has anyone tried making them in a muffin tin?

Any suggestions iinstead of bread crumbs to make low carb

Alana Krahenbil said...

Found this on pinterest and had to try them. Made them tonight and they turned out good. They tasted great(I used a garlic seasoning) but my broccoli must have been to big because it was hard to keep them from falling apart while I put them on the baking sheet. They turned out really tasty though, really recommend.

Anonymous said...

I'm going to try them with either almond meal or coconut flour or a combination of both, with lots of seasoning :)

Gulipek said...

I use raw, shredded zucchini instead of broccoli, and flour instead of bread crumbs. Do not let the mixture stand though, zucchini gets juicy. You can make also squares, instead of patties. Great healthy, easy dish. Thank you.

Whoever said these were bland is dead wrong! They are delicious and packed with flavor! I think I have found my new favorite "Guilt Free" Pleasure :)

Veronica Jimenez said...

These were delicious and my kids loved them!!! I had no eggs so I substituted ground flax seed. The flavor is in the ITALIAN breadcrumbs people....if you're using plain it is going to be bland.

Wow, this looks delicious! I just pinned it :)

Hi,
Saw this recipe on pinterest and decided that I had to try them!
I added onions and some seasoning, so they tasted great, but I found them to be quite cakey? Possibly from the breadcrumbs combined in the egg? I don't know...i'm not that great at cooking. Other than that I loved them!

Aimee Domash said...

I made these today. They are pretty popular in my house ...all the kids liked them except my extremely picky, picky 8 year old. Even my husband liked them.

Made these for my MOPS group but ended up having to double the eggs and cheese and breadcrumbs half way through the recipe since there wasn't enough to cover all 16oz of broccoli. Ended up making two cookie sheets of it. Smell yummy, they are still in the oven so haven't tried them yet!

Just made these as apps for a baby shower! Was nervous after reading comments that they were too bland so I revamped the recipe and added a lot more flavor (although I'm sure more fat too haha). I did 4 eggs, half a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix, a little bit of grated Parmesan cheese, half an onion chopped fine, half a red pepper chopped fine, about three garlic cloves chopped fine, a dash of pepper, salt and red pepper seasoning and some Italian seasoning. They were incredible and packed with flavor and the chopped red pepper added some color. They were gone fast and everyone was asking me for recipe!

I Just made these and they are delicious- what's funny is I somehow missed the part about breadcrumbs and didn't add them, and they were still wonderful. Thanks! :)

These look so good and I'm having a girls night in and couldn't decide what to make as an app anyway what I am wondering is about how many come out of the recipe. I need to make sure I make enough and the party is this Sat so no time to pre test with turkey day this week.

sparkpeople fan said...

I made these for a party tonight and they were excellent. I didn't find them bland at all. I served them with ranch dressing on the side and it was barely touched. They also held together really well. I knew I'd be short on time so I used frozen chopped broccoli and chopped it a bit finer. I'm making another batch for me to take to work. I got 23 patties from one batch.

Just made these tonight and they were a hit! I halved the recipe since I used fresh broccoli and didn't have enough for the amount called for. I still used two eggs. I'll admit I was nervous they weren't going to stay together when I was putting the patties on the parchment paper, but they did! And they went over real well. we will definitely be making these again. Thank you for the recipe.

My 17 month old loved this! I pureed it all before spooning the puree into dollops on the baking sheet
