Foodie Goodness Part II


009Onto the savory part of the goodness…Broccoli Bites!  We are growing broccoli and kale right now in our winter garden and thankfully both boys willingly go grab some raw broccoli and start chomping away.  I found a very easy recipe for these yummy little treats…just add eggs, cheese and breadcrumbs.  They’re kind of like baked little broccoli omelettes! A sure-fire way to get some protein and vitamins into your kiddos.

  • 16 oz steamed broccoli
  • 1 1/2 c. grated cheddar cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 c. breadcrumbs (I added some panko)
  • salt & pepper

Form small patties and line on a baking sheet with parchmant paper, bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes, turning patties over after 15 minutes.  Easy and delicious.

013This year we grew potatoes for the first time and although we didn’t get very many (just enough for this one dinner), their flavor was out of this world!! They were so sweet and tender. We roasted them with some peppers and served them along side our garden greens and a roasted chicken. Good eating.

      You bet, Terry…they are so easy to make, it’s ridiculous.

    I remember the first time I tasted fresh fingerling potatoes from the farmer’s market. I’d never liked potatoes before. Fresh potatoes are a totally different breed.

      Truly. Now that we’ve tried it, we will definitely go for more this year.
