Broccoli & Cheese Bites



While I do love the Green Giant Broccoli & Cheese Tots, I want to make an effort to eat less processed food where and when I can. I don't always have the time but I did this week. 

This was quite easy to put together and now I have extra servings for the next couple of days. They hold up well when re-warming in the microwave!

Ingredients


  • 12 oz bag of frozen broccoli
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup Kraft Fat Free cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • Couple pinches cayenne pepper (optional)

Directions


  1. Empty the frozen broccoli into a colander and run warm water over them. Place into a food processor. Pulse a few times until the broccoli resembles "rice". 
  2. Add in the rest of the ingredients and run the food processor until combined. 
  3. At this point, I placed the mixture into a clean kitchen towel and rung out any extra moisture. You could also place in a colander and gently push the moisture out that way. 
  4. Using a 4 cm scoop, form the mixture into 26 balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. 
  5. Place in the refrigerator to set up, if you have the time. I didn't and they were just fine. 
  6. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes, flip with tongs and bake for 10 more minutes. 

I love serving these with some Dijon mustard! 

This recipe makes 4 servings of 6 bites at 1 pt per serving on Weight Watchers Freestyle Program. 

Enjoy!
