Baked Broccoli Bites

12 oz. broccoli, chopped, thawed
1 large egg
2 Tbsp diced onions
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
1 tsp. minced garlic

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.  Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.  Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.  Shape mixture into bite size logs, pressing firmly together to prevent them from falling apart.  Place on baking sheet.  Bake 20-22 minutes or until lightly browned and hot throughout.

Comment:  A version of this recipe came from a site titled Yummly.  I did my usual and made a couple of changes.  I used chopped broccoli instead of the larger pieces or fresh.  I eliminated the salt and pepper.  The recipe called for 1 tsp of each and I found that was too much due to the salt in the cheeses.  The original recipe quoted this as having only 12 calories per serving with the recipe making 4 servings.  I can't vouch for that but I can say that this is one delicious 'snack' food.  I'll be making this later using spinach.  I have a feeling it will be just as good and possibly even better.
