Make Broccoli Cheesy Bites


Broccoli + melted cheese is equal  with you-know-what. With little fireworks on the taste buds of your tongue. Read below the recipe to achieve this little dose of happiness.


Ingredients (make 12)

:: for the bites

:: 12 broccoli fresh heads

:: 1/2 cup of grated goat cheese

:: 1/2 cup of feta

:: 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs

:: 1 egg

:: salt, pepper


:: For the dill sauce

:: a bunch of dill

:: 1/2 cup of yogurt

:: 1 table spoon of olive oil

:: 1 teaspoon of vinegar

:: salt, pepper

Sweet paprika


You cook the broccoli heads in steamed water for 3-4 min, so that they will keep their bright green color. Then let them cool for a while. Whisk the egg in one bowl and in another one mix the breadcrumbs, the cheese, salt and pepper. Dip each broccoli head in the egg and then in the cheese-mix bowl. End up with broccoli heads thoroughly coated with this mixture; they will be like small patties. Fry them until golden brown in both sides for about 2-3 minutes. Done.

For the dill sauce:

Mix all the ingredients and add more or less olive oil or vinegar according your taste. Put it in the fridge before serving.
