Broccoli & Cheddar Cheese Nuggets

1 16-oz Package frozen broccoli, cooked, drained, and chopped
1 cup Seasoned bread crumbs (you could try using baby cereal if you want)
 1 ½ cups Shredded cheddar cheese ( use real cheese and not a "processed cheese food" product. Try tomato & basil cheddar.)
3 Large eggs or 5 egg yolks
Preheat oven to 375
  1. Lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil and set aside.
  2. Combine all remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. Shape mixture into nuggets or fun shapes such as squares or squigglies etc..and place on baking tray. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, turn nuggets over after 15 minutes. Serve warm. Be sure to crumble these if your baby needs.
 I can't seem to remember where I found this recipe but it is great :) Jackson ate these right up and we liked them too.  We ate them as a little appetizer.
For the recipe I used crackers that are the equivalent of Club in the US, instead of bread crumbs and just plain cheddar (shredded by me) , and 3 large eggs.
It only took a few minutes to prep everything while the broccoli cooked.  I made them into basically small hamburger patties but next time I will get more adventurous on the shapes! That will make them even more fun as Jackson gets older!
