Here’s a yummy way to eat your veggies. Mini Broccoli Cheddar Bites were inspired from a recipe in the lovely cookbook called Scratch. They remind me of mini quiches–perfectly cooked broccoli meets eggy-cheesy goodness. My 7-year-old was a big fan of these guys, as well as, my father-in-law who was visiting.

If you don’t have a mini muffin pan, you can still make these in a regular-sized pan. Just cook them a little longer until they are set in the middle.

    Do you steam the broccoli at all first or will it cook fast enough? Also, I am making these for passover and just subbing matzo cake meal for the flour, any thoughts?
