These bites can be eaten as a snack or with any meal.

1 large bunch of broccoli florets
2 eggs, lightly beaten
**1/2 cup, packed, torn fresh bread (no crust)
1/4 cup grated onion
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 cup (4 oz. 114g) packed, grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

*Substitution
1 cup milk
1/2 cup Bisquick

Preheat oven to 350F.

Place 1-inch of water in a pot with a steamer basket.  Steam the broccoli florets for 5 minutes, until just tender.  Rinse with cold water to stop the cooking.  Finely chop florets.  You should have 2 to 2 1/2 cups.

**Place the beaten eggs and torn bread in a large bowl.   Mix until the bread is completely moistened or

* Omit the bread and instead blend 1 cup milk, 2 eggs, and 1/2 cup Bisquick

Add the grated onion, mayonnaise,  cheese, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Stir in the minced broccoli.

Preheat oven to 350F.  Coat the wells of 2 mini muffin pans (1 dozen wells) with olive oil (so the bites don’t stick).  Bake for 25 minutes until cooked through and lightly browned on top.

If you don’t have mini muffin pans, you can cook by greasing a baking sheet and spoon large dollops of the mixture onto the pan.  Baking time is the same.
