I hated this recipe. It sounds easy and good but when I tried the recipe this evening, it was a major disaster!! They were more like broccoli blobs.

This recipe must be missing a step or ingredient or several. It was the biggest mess. I wish that I would have read the review before wasting my money and time.

I hate to say it, but this recipe was awful. Once I put these in the hot oil, they fell apart. The bread crumbs became separated from the broccoli balls, and turned into clumps of fried crumbs. Everything else just turned into an oily mass of cheese. There is nothing holding these things together. Don't waste your time.
