Cheddar Broccoli Tots


1 large head of broccoli
1 egg
1 egg white
2 green onion, chopped
1 c. reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c. seasoned breadcrumbs
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. fresh cracked pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a large pot, cook the broccoli in boiling water for 1-2 minutes.  Drain and pat dry on a paper towel. Chop very fine and place in a medium size bowl. Add the egg and egg white, onion, shredded cheese, breadcrumb and seasonings. I like to use my hands to make sure all of the ingredients are mixed well together, but you could also use a spatula. Spoon about a tablespoon or so of the mixture into your hands and form into an oval shape. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 8 minutes, flip over, and continue to bake for 7-8 more minutes.

(Makes approximately 28-30 tots. 7 tots per serving equals 5 WW points. )
