Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet with oil.
  2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil; add broccoli, cover, and steam until tender, 2 to 6 minutes. Let broccoli cool at room temperature until cool enough to touch.
  3. Transfer broccoli into a large mixing bowl. Add bread crumbs, Cheddar cheese, eggs, basil, oregano, and garlic powder to the broccoli; mix. Shape into nuggets or fun shapes and arrange onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in preheated for 15 minutes, flip, and continue baking until heated through and beginning to firm, 10 to 15 minutes more.

What a great side for dinner these were! I pulsed the broccoli in a food processor before mixing with other ingredients. They are a little bland by themselves but PERFECT with a dipping sauce. YUM!!
