Here's what you need:
2 tsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 onion, diced fine
1 16 oz. bag frozen broccoli, defrosted and rough chop
1 cup panko crumbs
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/3 cup parmesan cheese, grated
2 eggs, beaten
salt and pepper
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray lightly with non-stick spray.
Heat oil and saute the onions and garlic until softened. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to cool.
Step 2: Place the thawed broccoli in a kitchen tea towel and twist each end tightly to remove any excess water. In a bowl, beat the eggs and mix in the cheeses. Give the broccoli a rough chop.
Step 3: Add the broccoli, garlic, onions and panko crumbs to the egg/cheese mixture and mix well.
Step 5: Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly (20-40 minutes This will help them to keep firm). Flip the patties over and cook for another 15 minutes.
ENJOY! I can see dipping these in a garlic aioli, mayo/dill or ranch dressing if one was so inclined. They are great on the go snacks and are just as good cold as they are hot.
