Broccoli Cheddar Tot Ingredients
Birds Eye Steam Fresh Broccoli Florets: these tender broccoli florets are perfectly cooked and ready to use in minutes. I love that they are picked at the peak of freshness, and flash frozen to lock in nutrients.
Birds Eye Steam Fresh Shredded Potatoes & Sweet Potatoes with Broccoli and Cauliflower Florets: This blend of shredded potatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli florets, and cauliflower florets is lightly seasoned and a hearty and delicious addition to the veggie bites.
Eggs: These help to bind and hold everything together.
Greek Yogurt: I used plain whole milk Greek yogurt for this recipe.
Shredded Cheddar: For the best results, I like to use a box grater to hand shred the cheddar cheese off the block.
Almond Flour: Finely ground blanched almond flour helps to give these broccoli cheddar tots some shape while also keeping the recipe gluten free.
Spices: A combination of garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika help to make these tots even tastier.
How to Make These Broccoli Cheddar Tots
Step One: Cook the Birds Eye Steamfresh Broccoli Florets and Shredded Potatoes & Sweet Potatoes with Broccoli & Cauliflower Florets according to the package directions. Once the vegetables are finished cooking, transfer them to a mixing bowl and set aside in the fridge to cool while you grab the rest of your ingredients.
Step Two: Once the veggies have cooled, add them to a food processor and pulse 3-4 times until everything is finely chopped.
Step Three: Transfer the chopped vegetables to a mixing bowl and then add the shredded cheddar, eggs, Greek yogurt, almond flour, and spices. Use a spoon to gently mix everything together.
Step Four: Use a tablespoon sized cookie scoop to scoop the veggie mixture and then use your hands to form the mixture in tot shaped logs.
Step Five: Place the tots on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spray them lightly with cooking spray and then bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Flip the tots halfway through to ensure that each side gets nice and brown.
Step Six: Once the broccoli cheddar tots are done cooking, remove them from the oven and serve with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy!
