Step 1: Preheat the Oven

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with cooking spray.

Step 2: Steam the Broccoli

  • Place the fresh broccoli florets in a microwave-safe bowl with a splash of water. Cover the bowl with a microwave-safe plate or lid. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes or until the broccoli is tender but still crisp. Alternatively, you can steam the broccoli on the stovetop until it’s tender, about 3-4 minutes. Drain any excess water and let the broccoli cool slightly.

Step 3: Chop the Broccoli

  • Once the broccoli has cooled, finely chop it into small pieces. You want the broccoli pieces to be small enough to mix evenly into the cheese mixture.

Step 4: Mix the Ingredients

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped broccoli, shredded cheddar cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, eggs, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix everything together until well combined.

Step 5: Form the Bites

  • Using your hands or a spoon, scoop out portions of the mixture and shape them into bite-sized patties or balls. Place these onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between each bite.

Step 6: Bake to Perfection

  • Bake the Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Bites in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy on the outside.

Step 7: Serve and Enjoy

  • Once they’re done, remove the bites from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Serve them as a delightful snack or appetizer. These bites are delicious on their own or with your favorite dipping sauce.

These Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Bites are not only a fantastic low-carb snack but also a great way to make broccoli more appealing to picky eaters. Enjoy the cheesy goodness and the wholesome taste of broccoli in every bite!
