Broccoli and cheese bites (Slimming World friendly)

I have seen this recipe all over facebook and social media and so thought would give it a try. I did my best to make it as low syn as possible but they still come out at 1/2 syn per bite which is ok but it would be tempting to eat more than a few as they are really tasty.

They aren't hard to make but take a bit of time so I saved making them till a Saturday morning when I didn't have to rush for anything. The recipes I have seen call them 'tots' based on the American food product 'tater tots' which you buy frozen over there but as they aren't readily available here I thought I'd call them bites.


Broccoli and cheese bites


300g broccoli florets (raw weight)
25g panko breadcrumbs
50g grated low fat cheddar cheese
2 spring onions (chopped)
2 cloves garlic (crushed)
1 beaten egg
low calorie spray oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper


Bring a large pan of salted water to a boil and add the broccoli, Bring back to the boil and boil for 2 minutes then drain well and chop very finely.

Place the broccoli in a large bowl and add all the other ingredients apart from the spray oil and mix very well. Cover and place in the fridge for 20 minutes to chill.

Take small spoonful of the mix and shape into small balls, The recipe should make about 26 'bites'.

Place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment and spray with the spray oil. Bake at gas 6 200/400 for about 10 minutes then take them out, Turn them over, Spray again and give them another 10 minutes they may need a little longer just take them out when they are browned and crispy.



1/2 syn each on extra easy
