Baked Broccoli Patties

(mydeliciousmeals.com)
These baked broccoli patties with cheese are an awesome, healthy and delicious dinner side dish. Another great way to get kids to eat their veggies (see also Crispy Baked Zucchini Sticks). This recipe is a must try!
Baked Broccoli Patties

Ingredients

  • 16 ounces broccoli (I used frozen, defrosted, see instructions if you use fresh)
  • 1/2 onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs (better to use Panko)
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil
  • salt
  • pepper
Yield:
patties
Prep time:
10 minutes
Cook time:
30 minutes
Total time:
40 minutes
Yield: 6 patties | Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 30 minutes | Total time: 40 minutes

Instructions

1. Finely chop onion and mince garlic. In a small skillet, heat oil and saute onion and garlic until soft (about 7 minutes). Set aside to cool.

2. If you use defrosted broccoli, remove excess moisture with paper towels (for fresh broccoli, blanch it for 2 minutes). Chop into bite size pieces. Transfer to a large bowl.

3. Add breadcrumbs, lightly beaten eggs, Parmesan cheese, Cheddar cheese, onion and garlic to the bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste (not too much since cheese already has salt). Mix until combined.

4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (if using foil, brush it with some oil).
5. Form the mixture into patties. To shape perfect patties use a lid (mine comes from a large mayonnaise jar). Cover the lid with plastic wrap (this will help to easier remove the patty). Fill it with the mixture, pressing it down lightly. Flip the patty out and repeat with the rest of the mixture.

I made it and I LOVED IT LOL I added my own spices- used the lid to make the Pattie’s however I boiled two potatoes and mashed them down and added it to the broccoli mix before baking It added some texture in my opinion- made it easier to combine together

Flavor is wonderful!

I made these as per the recipe with the exception of sprinkling the tops with sweet smoked paprika. My only problem is the cakes tended to fall apart. So should I add another egg to make them hold together?

I used rolled oats as a substitute for breadcrumbs and they turned out beautifully. Thanks for the recipe!

I made this recipe and put it in an 8x8 pan. It came out delicious. Do you think spinach would work in this recipe

Absolutely delicious!

These are so good and easy. I save and collect all the little tiny pieces from frozen broccoli, and use them when I have enough pieces. Made these twice. I add the drained raw frozen broccoli shreds to the onions while they're cooling. Then beat the eggs into my bowl, and then add all the other ingredients. Delicious with plain Greek yogurt mixed with Trader Joe's garlic dip. We love them!

Great recipe

Guest
Love the hint from the mayo jar lid to shape them. Thank you. I already have a similar recipe and this can be Keto friendly. I just substitute pork rinds for the Panko crumbs. You can use this recipe with other veggies too like zucchini, cauliflower or potatoes. I also sometimes add lemon or lime juice and a little chili paste.

I made this but was too lazy to make into patties so I put the mixture into an 8x8 square pan. I used the air fryer at 375 for 13 minutes. This was fantastic!

Great for kids!

I never write reviews, but I feel like I must on this one! I made a batch for my one year old and twin three year olds. I baked them the night before and reheated in the air fryer. They were a big hit with everyone! I made them exactly as the recipe states, except I ended up with 12 patties, so mine must have been much smaller.

This is a great recipe. I make a crumbly mixture of the bread crumbs and cheeses and add a few dried herbs like basil and oregano. I don't blanch the broccoli but add it to the fried onions and garlic, mix in in well, and leave it covered for a minute or so. I also add a pinch of cayenne to the frying and do everything in olive oil over low heat. If the final mixture is too dry I just add an egg. Parchment paper is definitely superior to foil. I bake them for less time at 350, just enough to firm them. I then freeze them with a parchment separator for each. They are quick to thaw and fry golden brown. Two heads of broccoli make 10 patties.

WOW! I made them for the third time so much better. My family liked them better this time. Oops I did not use the oven, cooked on top. Much quicker.

Delicious broccoli burgers so easy could make blind folded

These were great! I will make each week. The foil wasn’t good, as they stuck even though I buttered and oil oil... the parchment paper was excellent. No sticking what so ever. Next week I’ll try tomato sauce on. I might also add mashed beans for more protein though the cheese is great for protein.i hate clean up. I used one bowl , one frying pan onions/garlic and a measuring cup. Thank you so much for posting. (:

Totally delicious! I’m going to try this for sure, maybe with a crema on top, kind of like latkes with sour cream.
