Broccoli Nuggets - Makes 12, enough for 1 adult and 1 toddler with some left over (unless you've got a greedy guts like mine!) Should be fine for babies on fingerfoods*
1 slice of bread cut into 0.5-1 cm (approx) cubes (approx 1/5th inch)
140g, 5oz Cooked broccoli
65g, 2oz Extra mature or vintage cheddar
Preheat the oven if you're intending to cook these immediately to 200oC / 400F.
Cut the bread into the cubes or, if you prefer, make into breadcrumbs (my food processor is currently packed away which is why I went for cubes but it worked really well.)
Mash the broccoli with a fork until it's coarsely mashed up. Mix with the breadcrumbs. Grate in the cheddar and break in the eggs. Mix together.
* Note, this recipe contains whole egg. Some doctors used to recommend not serving egg white until older than than one year but certainly UK doctors now recommend fully cooked whole eggs as ok from 6 months but check in your country as advice differs.
Looking for a grown up broccoli recipe? Try this side dish of broccoli, with chorizo.
If you like this recipe you might like; prawn and broccoli pie, a lovely cheesy broccoli and potato layered dish. Or why not try broccoli and cheddar mini quiches? A bit more effort but lovely and great for lunchboxes. Or there's a variation on this recipe which I think (shhh) is actually a bit tastier... spinach and goats cheese bites!
