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.

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)

 

PROCEDURE:

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.

  2. 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)
