Broccoli Tots



  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F and line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat, or lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Bring a medium sauce pan of water to a boil and carefully drop the florets in the water. Cook for about 8-10 minutes, until fork tender. Drain and run cold water over the florets to quickly cool them down.
  3. Spread the florets out on a plate lined with several paper towels to dry.
  4. When the broccoli is mostly dried, coarsely chop it up small.
  5. In a large mixing add the chopped broccoli, beaten egg, cheese, panko, green onions, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper.
  6. Stir the ingredients together and then shape tater tot-shaped mounds using about 1½ tablespoons of the broccoli mixture.
  7. Bake on the prepared baking sheet for 16-18 minutes, flipping over halfway through baking time to ensure even browning.
  8. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce, or plain.
