Tasty Tuesday - Delicious Bites

This week's recipe is another muffin cup recipe.  Delicious Bites were known as Broccoli Bites until I offered them to a 3 year old.  Say the word broccoli and it's game over.  She was willing they try them and took a couple bites.  Them she realized that there was, gasp!, veggies in them.  I consider a couple bites a win.

H and B on the other hand eat these up. They eat them for lunch a couple times every week.  They're easy to pull out of the freezer, heat up and take with us to the zoo or grocery store.

Delicious Bites aka Broccoli Bites

1 bunch, 3 heads with stems, broccoli
1 1/2 cups diced or shredded precooked chicken
3 cups shredded cheddar
3 slices sandwich bread
6 eggs

All of the ingredients before mixing.  


1. Peel broccoli stems.  Cut up broccoli stems and heads.  Steam until soft.  Mash cooked broccoli in a large bowl until it is coarsely mashed. 

2. Place cut up sandwich bread in food processor. Pulse until the bread reaches breadcrumb consistency.  

3. Add the breadcrumbs, eggs, cheese, and chicken to the bowl of broccoli.  Mix thoroughly. 

4. Spoon mixture in greased, ungreased if using silicone trays, muffin tins. 

5.  Bake at 400* for 15-20 minutes or until the edges are browned.  

Notes: I've made this recipe without the chicken and it turns out just as well.  As you can see in the picture, I baked shapes using Wilton Star Molds.  Baking times may vary depending on the size and shape of baking trays used.  I usually leave some larger broccoli chunks in the mix. If I were trying to hide the broccoli from my kids, I would mash the broccoli very finely.
