Baked Broccoli Patties


1 bunch of  fresh cleaned steamed broccoli florets chopped in chunks or use approximately 1 lb of frozen thawed chopped broccoli washed and drained
1 1/2 cup of shredded provolone, mozzarella or fontina cheese or a mixture of all three
2 tablespoons  grating cheese (romano cheese)
3 eggs
1 cup of seasoned Italian breadcrumbs

Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl.
You can form small patties with a meatball scooper or by hand making into burger style patties and place on a  lightly oiled sprayed parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes, turning the patties after the first 15 minutes, continue baking until browned.

I think you just discovered how to make kids eat broccoli. These sound really good, but how can you go wrong when you use 2 cheeses.
