Parmesan Broccoli Balls


They look very different from the original All Recipe version, but I tweaked the mixture according to my preferences; they’re a bit greener, but since I coated them with an equal amount of oil and catsup, they look like this. As usual I added a Chipotle pepper in adobo sauce. But anyway, let’s get started! But first, let me show you all of the ingredients.




3 cups chopped boiled  broccoli

1/4 cup butter or margarine

1 16 oz. package chicken flavored dry stuffing mix

5 eggs, beaten

1 medium red onion, chopped

3/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1. tsp. garlic salt

1 tsp. ground pepper

1 Chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, seeds removed, chopped finely( wear gloves )

1 tbsp. Italian bread crumbs

equal ratio of oil and katsup mixture for basting

1  8.5 oz. package of  Seeds of Change Organic Quinoa & Brown Rice with garlic (prepare as per package instruction)



1. Place broccoli in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Cover and bring to a boil, simmer for 5 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking 2-3 minutes until tender. Remove from heat, drain, cool and chop coarsely when manageable.

2. In a large bowl, combine broccoli, salt, eggs, stuffing, margarine, Parmesan cheese, milk Chipotle pepper and bread crumbs. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour to absorb the moisture.

4. Pre heat oven to 325 degrees F then roll the chilled mixture into 1 inch balls and arrange on a medium baking sheet as in this picture below….


5. Spray the cookie sheet with Pam Spray before lining up the rolled balls, lightly dab the tops with oil / catsup mixture then bake at 325 degrees F for 40 minutes, flipping once or bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, flipping once and applying the oil / catsup mixture on the opposite side. This is how they look with available garnishing from your refrigerator.

  1. Omg,I misspelled your beautiful name,Hsiaoping sorry about that,just came out from 12 hour duty today.


  2. Hsaioping,remember, this is an appetizer that serve broccoli veggies inside, crackers and cheese is a good idea!….feel free to eat with rice,red,brown but I already added Quinoa and Brown Rice w/ garlic already,thank you so much in dropping by my blog.


  3. Ana,this is what I read but haven’t tried them:1 tbsp. Puréed fruit like apples or banana, or a packet of KNOX unflavored jello mix with 2 tbsp. Warm water, mix them just when you’re ready to use them, or a tsp. Of yeast in a quarter of warm water but they say keep in mind that these recipes substitute 1 egg might not be great substitute in recipes that require more than 3 eggs. Let me know if this will work well with your dad. Thx for dropping by my blog ( as if I am Lola Basyang here,hahahaha)
