Ingredients
Broccoli Bites
  • 10 oz frozen broccoli florets, thawed, drained, and dried
  • 1⁄2 cup onion, finely diced
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 slice crisp cooked bacon, cut into small bits
  • 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup finely shredded Colby and Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1⁄4 cup Italian style bread crumbs (more or less as needed)
Honey Mustard Dressing(optional)
  • 1⁄4 cup fat-free plain yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
Directions
Broccoli Bites
  1. Place thawed, drained, and dried broccoli florets into a food processor and add the chopped onions. Pulse until everything is chopped up finely.
  2. Beat together eggs in a medium mixing bowl with a whisk. Add in all other ingredients except the breadcrumbs. Mix with a spatula until thoroughly combined.
  3. Place in the refrigerator to bind the mixture for at least an hour.
  4. Scoop out a bit more than 1 tablespoon (this is where the baking scoop comes in handy) of the mixture and form a ball.
  5. Roll the balls in the breadcrumbs, coating them well.
  6. Place balls on a tray and freeze for at least an hour.
  7. Heat the Air Fryer to 400 degrees for just a few minutes. Place the bites in one layer in the basket and fry at 400 for 15 minutes. (If you've decided to make the dressing, you can do that while the bites cook).
  8. Serve right away.
Honey Mustard Dressing (optional)
  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine all ingredients with a whisk until smooth and well combined.
