First things first, I chopped up half a bag of steamed organic broccoli. I’m not the biggest broccoli fan, so the smaller the pieces, the better for me!

I didn’t have Italian bread crumbs on hand, so I mixed up bread crumbs with oregano, parsley, garlic powder, and crushed red pepper. Feel free to omit the red pepper, but I like the kick that it gives these.

In a bowl, combine bread crumbs, broccoli, cheese, and 2 eggs. In the picture, there’s only one, but I realized when mixing that I needed another. This recipe is half of the original recipe the link will bring you to.

Form the broccoli mixture into small patties, and place on parchment paper. Bake at 375 for half an hour, flipping once after 15 minutes.

When they are done, they will be nice and brown and crispy on the outside.
