Broccoli & Cheese Patties

If you love broccoli and cheese, then I have a recipe that you will love! Broccoli and cheese patties.
These are a perfect meatless meal that you could pair with a nice garden salad, and they are quick and easy to make. 

I came across this recipe when I was trying to figure out what to do with my broccoli in the fridge for a meal, since it was the day before I was going to the grocery store and I had no meat in the house. This recipe was perfect since it used minimal ingredients, which I had on hand at the time (and I'm sure you will too).

2 teaspoons vegetable oil 
2 cloves garlic - minced
½ onion - chopped
2 Crowns of Broccoli (or 1- 12oz Bag of frozen Broccoli)
¾  cup panko breadcumbs (or regular breadcrumbs is fine too)
½  cup sharp cheddar cheese 
⅓  cup parmesan cheese 
2  eggs - beaten

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.

Heat the oil in a small pan over medium heat. Add in the garlic and onions. Season with salt/pepper to taste. Sauté until onions are garlic are tender. Set aside to cool.

Chop broccoli into small pieces and set aside.

Note: if you are using frozen broccoi add the broccoli to a kitchen towel. Wrap the towel around the broccoli and squeeze out the extra moisture.

Pour the broccoli into a large bowl.
To the same bowl, add the bread crumbs, the cheeses, eggs, and salt/pepper to taste 

Form the mixture into patties and place them on the prepared baking sheet..
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes; 15 minutes per side, or until browned and crispy.

It's as simple as that! Enjoy your  delicious Broccoli & Cheese Patties.

Take Care,
