Broccoli Bites

Have you ever bought a bag of frozen broccoli and been disappointed to find that most of the bag is actually chopped up stalks and not florets?  No?  Just me?  Ok.  Well, if it does ever happen to you- don't throw 'em out.  I was tempted to, because Princess S wouldn't dare eat them, but then I remembered we were fresh out of spinach muffins.  So how about some broccoli bites?  Toddler approved folks.  Totally portable, totally yummy, with some protein to boot.  These make a great snack or mini-breakfast too!  And thank goodness for that because there's snack time at our playgroup, and if I don't have something yummy for S to eat while her little friends are munching on sugar and gluten filled granola junk she will LOSE her MIND people.

Broccoli Bites
1 bag, or most of a bag of broccoli
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup shredded cheese
kosher salt

Defrost your broccoli and preheat your oven to 350.  Throw all your ingredients together and then portion into muffin cups.  I love my silicone muffin cups.  Bake 30 minutes or so.  This made 8 broccoli bites.  I know only 6 are pictured, that's because S and M each ate one before I could snap a pic.  That's ok with me!
