“These are great little broccoli appetizers shaped into balls that are baked (not fried). They can also be made ahead of time and frozen. Can be served warm or cold. Always a hit with company.”

Original recipe yields 60 bites



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Cook broccoli according to package directions. Drain, and cool.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, onion, parsley, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir in the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, margarine and milk. Mix in the broccoli last. Let the mixture stand for about 10 minutes. It should thicken, but if not, add a little more bread crumbs. Roll the mixture into small balls, and arrange on a greased baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm and lightly toasted.

These were a hit at my Christmas party. They are kind of like a meatless meatball...or as someone commented, like a little individual bite of stuffing without the turkey. I wasn't sure how the margarine would mix in with the rest of the ingredients, so I used a pastry blender to cut it directly into the 2 cups of bread crumbs before adding that to the rest of the ingredients. I also added just a little oregano for extra flavor. After adding the milk, I let the mixture soak for about a 1/2 hour before forming into balls. It would probably be OK to let this mixture sit in the refrigerator for hours before forming into the balls if it fits your schedule better. Next time I make it, I might reduce the amount of margarine to 1/3 cup--I just didn't see the need for that much margarine. Also, I had no problem with the final product sticking to the pan after baking as others commented. Maybe they used "reduced fat" margarine (I did not). Next time I think I might try adding crumbled cooked bacon in with the mixture. That would add a little more flavor, although I thought the flavor was fine as it was. Thanks for sharing!

OK, I played with this recipe! For one thing I thought they were bland, so after I had baked three, to sample, I added a healthy dash of Hot Sauce. Sampled again and still thought they lacked something. So I tried them with salsa. I liked that. So I baked some more and flattened the balls in order to have more area for the Salsa! I may try this recipe again, but I will certainly play around with more spices and perhaps cheddar cheese and crumbled bacon. I did prefer the flattened product. It is a fine basic recipe, and easily changed to accommodate personal taste.
