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.com, Deceptively 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.
What you’ll need: 1 cup mashed potatoes (I had leftover mashed potatoes) 1 cup broccoli florets (I used frozen broccoli) 1/2 cup cheddar cheese 1 egg 4 tablespoons bread crumbs 1/2 teaspoon of salt 1/2 cup bread crumbs 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Mix potatoes, cheese, broccoli, egg, 4 tablespoons bread crumbs, and salt in a bowl
If mixture is too wet to form patties, add some more bread crumbs – 1 tablespoon at a time
Place 1/2 cup bread crumbs on a plate or in a bowl
Form mixture in to patties and coat with bread crumbs
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.
Serve immediately and enjoy.
