Here’s how to make it:

  1. Combine the steamed broccoli, panko, eggs, cheese, green onions and garlic in a bowl. Mix until well combined and mashed together. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  2. Form broccoli mixture into balls and place on a baking sheet that’s been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Lightly spray the tops of the balls with olive oil spray. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven about 20 to 25 minutes, or until they begin to get brown and crispy. Serve. 

Variation: To mimic the classic broccoli rice casserole, add 1/2 cup of cooked white rice to the mixture.

Would Rice Krispies work to make it gf? Or Chex ?
It indeed looks healthy I lay at my own little spice to it and let you know but it looks wonderful can't wait to try it

Yummy I Think Fried Rice would go well with it I'm Going To Make These Definitely Delicious💜😁
Or possibly baked chicken and this as a side with potato soup or salad.

That Sounds So Goodies👍💜💜😊
Do you add a whole onion?? (small/medium?) Recipe calls for 3 onions, would think it would be too much.
Green onions, also known as scallions or spring onions. They're long and thin. Definitely not 3 regular onions, though I think you could sub 2 or 3 tablespoons of chopped regular onions with no issue.

It's green onions, not a whole white or yellow onion. :-)

I Usually Just And 1 purple Onion Only Because Onions In General Are Strong .😁However I Would Use 1 purple Onion In Medium Chunks But Not to Large Cut...Also Green Bell peper, red bell pepper, Cut In medium Chunks And Kinda Section The Portions Of Vegetables As You Serve When Its Finished Ready To Serve... 👍💞💞😊

Looks so hoods! I’m going to try making a vegan version by using ‘Egg Replacer’ and vegan cheese.
Could you use the microwaveable steamed broccoli or broccoli & cheese as a shortcut instead of having to steam fresh broccoli?
