delicious broccoli tot

These broccoli tots are YUMMY!

I like the idea of replacing potato with broccoli for additional nutrition. You can definitely change up the seasoning and add any style bread crumbs your family enjoys. I’ve heard you can even replace the breadcrumbs with almond meal for a low carb version.

      You’re so welcome Laurie!

  3. Andrea

    I would dip them in cheese sauce. Not very healthy but sounds so good!!

    • Lina D

      That does sound yummy!

  4. JaxonStormsMomma

    I make these for my 15 month old, except I shred zucchini and carrots add it to the chopped up broccoli with some shredded cheese, add some seasonings and an egg, and then shape and roll in breadcrumbs and bake. Then I freeze them and microwave or toaster oven as needed!

    • Lina D

      That sounds DELICIOUS! 🙂

  5. keesh

    Wow great idea .. I can’t wait to bake these for dinner

    • Lina D

  6. Jiya

    Can someone suggest an egg substitute in this recipe? Thanks!!

    • Luna

      I would try yogurt

  7. kaylan

    Do you have any recommendations on how to make these a more keto friendly recipe? They look so good!

    • Lina D

      Yes – using almond meal instead of bread crumbs. I haven’t tried but have seen other versions using it.

      • kaylan

        Thanks so much! Going to give it a try.

    • Michelle

      You can also use ground pork rinds instead of breadcrumbs

  8. Meredith

    These are so YUMMY! I made these with a cooking class that I did with kindergarten and first grade students. They loved them! Of all the recipes we did all year, they asked to make these again.

    • Lina D

      That is so great!! What a fun cooking class. Thanks for sharing 👍

  9. m

    Is there an egg substitute ? Thanks

    • anu avala

      hi you can also use all-purpose flour
      it acts for binding

  10. Shannon

    This looks awesome! I don’t know if my kids would eat them because they hate everything 😑 but I would!!

  11. BHARATHI

    Is there an egg substitute ?

  12. Sue G

    Do you think these would do good in anAir Fryer? Sounds delicious!

  13. keesh

    I tried these and I had to add extra bread crumbs just to make it a bit more stiff to mold into shape it was delicious with dinner thanks

    • Lina D

      Thanks for sharing!

  14. llriddle

    I’ve made something very similar, except used Shredded zucchini. I usually put them in a mini muffin pan – saves the time of shaping them into the tots & the size is similar. Then I wrap up several for individual servings & put in the freezer. They’re great for breakfast! I serve the zucchini ones with marinara sauce – yumm!

  15. Jamie

    Hi. Do you have a nutrition label for these?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      We do not, however plugging your ingredients into a site like myfitnesspal.com is helpful.
