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.
