Broccoli + Cheese "Meat" balls

Yesterday was hair day. The glorious 2 hours when I get to walk in one person and walk out a new one. I love Aly because she lets me get crazy. I think she loves me because I let her get crazy too. She specifically said last night: "I love that you are so daring with your hair"

She is amazing number one. Somehow managed to ombré my short little hair style. Out of this world. Dark brown with a rust ombré. Gorg. But enough about my hair..the whole point of this post is the BROCCOLI BALLS- holy Hannah.

The Recipe
Broccoli + Cheese "Meat" balls

1 bag frozen broccoli {12-16 oz}
1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
1 cup shredded cheese{recipe called for mozzarella; I used cheddar jack}
1/4 cup grated Parm
3 eggs, beaten
Salt + pepper

  1. Preheat the oven to 350
  2. Steam the broccoli until just cooked, cool a bit, and then roughly chop
  3. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and season with salt + pepper to taste
  4. Form into balls and place on a baking sheet {I covered with foil and sprayed with cooking spray first for east clean up}
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown
  6. Serve warm {I served with pizza sauce for dipping which was the perfect compliment}
