Broccoli Cheese Tater Tots

Print Recipe

Ingredients

  • 16 oz broccoli pearls
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 – 1 cup panko
  • 2 tbl fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • Pinch crushed red pepper (optional)
  • Olive oil, for brushing

Directions

  1. Steam the broccoli pearls according to package directions, and set aside to let cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the steamed and cooled broccoli bits, egg, cheddar, panko, parsley, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and crushed red pepper. Mix together until fully combined.
  4. Scoop about 1 1/2 tbl of broccoli mixture into the palm of your hand, and squeeze with your hand to mold into a long cylinder. Press down on the edges with your other hand to form a rectangular tot shape. If mixture is falling apart in your hands and not sticking, add 1/4 cup panko to the bowl and mix.
  5. Shape each tot and arrange on a baking sheet, about 1 inch apart.
  6. Brush the top of each tot with olive oil. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 – 22 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom, rotating the tray halfway through. Serve with ketchup or dipping sauce of choice!
