Ok, no one else likes replacing “Shots” in LMFAO’s hit with “tots” other than me? That’s ok….no shame here!
When I shared my meal prep for the week on my Instagram (follow me HERE ), my inbox blew up with questions asking for the recipe for my Broccoli Tots. Ask and you shall receive!
These tots are something I have been making for ages, and they are so incredibly simple….not to mention they are made up of only FOUR ingredients!
Katie’s Broccoli Tots
-3 cups fresh broccoli florets, chopped fine
-1/4 tsp garlic powder
-1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Place chopped broccoli florets in a microwave safe bowl and cover with a piece of Saran Wrap. Poke a few holes in wrap to allow steam to pass through. Microwave for about four minutes.
Remove broccoli from microwave and squeeze out excess water (be careful here….broccoli will be hot). Add the remaining ingredients, then form small tot like shapes, placing on a prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes at 450 degrees.
A few tips:
**You do not have to squeeze the excess water out. Do this only if you prefer a crispier texture.
**I recommend using a Silpat in place of parchment paper or just plain cooking spray.
**You can use any cheese you like. These are very good with mozzarella as well.
