"These are great little broccoli appetizers shaped into balls that are baked (not fried). They can also be made ahead of time and frozen. Can be served warm or cold. Always a hit with company."

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Cook broccoli according to package directions. Drain, and cool.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, onion, parsley, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir in the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, margarine and milk. Mix in the broccoli last. Let the mixture stand for about 10 minutes. It should thicken, but if not, add a little more bread crumbs. Roll the mixture into small balls, and arrange on a greased baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm and lightly toasted.

YES 5 stars! Be sure though to grease the cookie sheet very well as my first batch stuck a little. I also cut back on the onion just a tad and next time I'll use fresh onion as suggested by th...

These were great and toddler-approved. They don't scream "You're eating broccoli" and they're portable (in fact, my oldest daughter wants them in her lunchbox). Be sure your broccoli is draine...

These are great! I used fresh broccoli, and I am sure I had much more than the recipe called for, so they were filled with broccoli. The breading mix just held them together. These were a big...

Made thesew/cheddar since that's what I had. Very good and easy. Served some brown mustard ont he side for dipping/

Excellent! I followed advice of others and seasoned them more as well as flattened them a little. Great base recipe! I used fresh broccoli, fresh parsley, fresh onion, plain bread crumbs and ...

"As is" these are a little plain. I would definitely dip them in some sort of sauce, like a spicy honey mustard. They could also use more seasoning. I like the poultry seasoning flavor but th...
