Instructions:

  1. Blanch broccoli in boiling salted water for 6 minutes or until fork tender. Drain and run under cold water to cool. 
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Brush a 24-cup mini muffin pan with melted butter; sprinkle 1 tbsp (15 mL) breadcrumbs evenly over pan. Shake out any excess.
  3. Transfer broccoli to a food processor; pulse until finely chopped but not puréed. Transfer to a bowl and mix in remaining 5 tbsp (75 mL) dry breadcrumbs, the Goat Cheddar, green onion, sour cream, eggs, salt and pepper until well combined. 
  4. Divide broccoli mixture between the cups; bake for 20 minutes or until golden and set. Cool slightly then use a thin knife to remove bites from muffin cups. Serve warm. 

Tips:

  • If you don't have a food processor you can chop the broccoli by hand.
  • Replace fresh broccoli with 1 bag (500 g) frozen broccoli florets. Thaw under cold running water; drain well before chopping.  
  • Bites can be reserved for 2 days in the refrigerator or frozen for up to 1 month. Eat cold or reheat for 5 to 10 seconds each in the microwave
