Easy Broccoli Tots Recipe: This Delicious Broccoli Cheese Tots Recipe Is a Fun Variation On Tater Tots

First came mashed potato bombs, and now meet broccoli cheese tots. If you're looking for creative ways to get your family to eat their veggies, look no further than this fun variation on tater tots

This easy broccoli tots side dish recipe is packed with so much flavor, everyone will be lining up for seconds. My kids love 'em, and they make great snacks, too. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes plus 20 to 30 minutes to chill 
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

Servings: 6 to 8


Here’s how you make them:

  1. In a food processor, combine the broccoli, onion, parsley and garlic. Pulse the broccoli mixture very fine.
  2. In a bowl or gallon-sized food storage bag add the processed broccoli mixture with all of the remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well with a gloved or slightly wet hands to combine like you would making a meatloaf or meatballs.
  3. Scoop mixture into the palm of your slightly wet hand. Roll the mixture into a ball. Once a ball has formed, begin pressing down on the top and bottom of the ball with your thumbs while pressing in on the sides with your other hand, rotating into a cylinder-like “tot” shape. Semi-freeze for 20 to 30 minutes to hold shape prior to oven time. You can also leave them in round ball shape and flatten out into discs.
  4. Place onto a baking sheet that’s been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Spray the tops of the tots with an additional bit of canola oil spray and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes. Turn the tots and bake an additional 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown and warmed through.
