Mini Broccoli Cheddar Bites

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.

I served these alongside Slow Cooker Balsamic Shredded Beef one night and then had them for breakfast the next day. You guys, I ate broccoli for breakfast for days in a row. Let me tell you, I felt like I was winning.

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 these freeze well?

    • Rachel says

      I haven’t tested them from frozen. My gut shot is that they wouldn’t do great when you re-warm them.

  2. Fay says

    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?

    • Rachel says

      I just chopped it small and it worked fine not to steam it first.

    • Rachel says

      I’m sorry but I’ve never used matzo cake meal, so I don’t know how that would do.

    Yum! I added some chopped onion. Call me crazy but what is the olive oil for?

    • Rachel says

      Glad you liked these, Caroline. Thanks for pointing out the olive oil. That was a misprint that I corrected.
