Broccoli and Cheese Tots
  1. 12 ounces broccoli
  2. 1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced
  3. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  4. 2/3 cup grated cheese (I used mozzarella)
  5. 1 large egg, beaten
  6. 2/3 cup bread crumbs
  7. 2 tsp hot sauce
  8. Salt to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Blanch the broccoli in boiling water for 2 minutes then immediately shock with cold tap water or an ice bath. Drain very, very well.
  2. Chop finely and mix throughly with the egg, green onions, cheese, hot sauce and bread crumbs. Season generously with salt and pepper. Scoop about 1.5 tablespoons of mix into your hands and shape into a tater-tot shape. It helps if you keep your hands wet while you’re shaping. Place on your prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all the tots are made.
  3. Bake until golden brown and crispy, 18-20 minutes, turning the sheet half way. Remove from the oven and enjoy hot with ketchup, mustard, hot sauce or sriracha!
