Broccoli Nuggets

Broccoli Nuggets

Recipe: (scroll down a bit to get to this particular recipe)


1 16-oz  Package frozen broccoli, cooked, drained, and chopped
1 cup whole wheat plain breadcrumbs
1 ½ cups Shredded cheddar cheese
3  Large eggs

Preheat oven to 375
1. Lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil and set aside.
2. Combine all remaining ingredients and mix well.

*I made some for Annie and added seasonings as well, I kept Luke’s plain

3. Shape mixture into nuggets (I used my small cookie scoop) or fun shapes. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, turn nuggets over after 15 minutes. Serve warm. Be sure to crumble these if your baby needs.

Modifications: None

Time to table: 5 minutes prep, 25 minutes bake time

Servings: This made quite a bit – I froze a big bag of them.

Annie: Love – and she especially loved that I made an “A for Annie” 🙂 Weirdly, broccoli is probably her favorite vegetable.

Luke: Love (but he’s at the age where he basically loves anything he can pick up and shove in his mouth)

Notes: Check the original link for suggestions to avoid eggs if that’s something you’re doing. I have made baby food for both Annie and Luke and REALLY love it. I didn’t make a ton for either kid and pretty quickly went to just giving them what we were eating (or in Annie’s case early on, just gave her leftovers since we used to eat after she went to bed). Luke is not a fan of purees, so these are great for him if we don’t want to give him what we’re eating that night for whatever reason.

She did not eat all this 🙂 I just froze the parts she didn’t eat for later.
