At 18 months my daughter is starting to be a picky eater so I’m always experimenting and trying new recipes. My “go to” resources are Weelicious.comDeceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld (I bought this book years ago and knew it would come in handy one day) and of course Pinterest. The recipe below is a take on the Broccoli & Cheese Patties on Weelicious.com. I improvised and used what I already had in my kitchen.

If mixture is too wet to form patties, add some more bread crumbs – 1 tablespoon at a time

Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook patties for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown.

Patties will have a nice brown crust on the outside once done.
