Broccoli Cheese Tots

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 30-35 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Servings: 12-20 tots


  • 1 bag of frozen broccoli
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  2. Thaw and drain the broccoli.
  3. In a large bowl, crack both eggs and stir with the cheese, breadcrumbs and broccoli until the broccoli is nicely coated.
  4. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick spray.
  5. Scoop out coated broccoli and roll into balls with your hands. Place each ball onto the baking sheet.

    Tip: if your mixture is not sticking together, place it in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes and then roll it.

  7. Enjoy!
