These broccoli cheese bites are the perfect quick and easy appetizers, full of veggie and cheesy goodness. Everything you love about a broccoli cheese casserole all in one tiny bite. These broccoli bites are perfect for a weekly dinner side or served at a brunch!
When I was growing up, my mom would make us like the same twenty meals all the time. One of those meals was pizza loaf and another was French dip sandwiches with tater tots. A third was a broccoli cheese chicken casserole topped with Ritz crackers. These broccoli bites are a bite-sized version of that casserole. I made them without chicken, but you can add chicken in if you’d prefer to eat them as a meal rather than a side.
How to Make Broccoli Bites
Making these broccoli cheddar bites is so easy.
First, cook your broccoli. Then throw the broccoli in a food processor along with the Ritz crackers, cheese, and egg to mix it all together.
Once your broccoli and cheese mix is ready, place in a mini muffin tins then top with some crumbled Ritz crackers. Make sure to fill the muffin tins almost completely full or else the broccoli bites will be a bit flat.
Bake in mini muffin cups for 12-15 minutes and you have yourself bite-sized bites of broccoli and cheese goodness. And so much cuter than a casserole. They were perfect for my game day party!
