Ingredients:

  • 2 cups broccoli florets, steamed until tender
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Marinara sauce or ranch dressing, for dipping (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Broccoli:
    • Steam the broccoli florets until they are tender but still slightly firm. Allow them to cool slightly before proceeding.
  2. Mix the Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the steamed broccoli florets, shredded cheddar cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, beaten eggs, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly combined and the broccoli is coated in the cheese mixture.
  3. Form the Bites:
    • Using your hands, scoop up a small portion of the broccoli mixture and shape it into a bite-sized ball. Repeat with the remaining mixture, forming uniform-sized balls.
  4. Heat the Oil:
    • In a deep skillet or frying pan, heat vegetable oil over medium heat until it reaches 350°F (175°C). You want enough oil to submerge the broccoli bites.
  5. Fry the Bites:
    • Carefully place the formed broccoli bites into the hot oil, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Fry in batches if necessary.
    • Fry the bites for 2-3 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy on the outside, and the cheese is melted and gooey on the inside.
    • Use a slotted spoon or tongs to remove the fried broccoli bites from the oil and transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.
  6. Serve and Enjoy:
  7. Serve the cheesy fried broccoli bites hot, with marinara sauce or ranch dressing for dipping, if desired.
  8. Enjoy these crispy, cheesy bites as a tasty appetizer, snack, or side dish!

These Cheesy Fried Broccoli Bites are sure to be a hit with friends and family, offering a delicious way to enjoy the goodness of broccoli in a fun and flavorful way. Enjoy
