    Thanks for this recipe! Im on the go a lot with my 10 month old who is just starting to eat finger food by himself. I chose this recipe so that I could have a healthy and portable finger food while in the car (or running late and no time for sit down breakfast!) and it came out perfect! It was easy and we already had all the staple ingredients on hand. I did modify it a little for my baby's needs (smaller bite sized pieces, about 1/4 tsp sizes, as well as added a little shredded chicken for protein). I also added a little seasoning and after I gave him my son his first bite, he was smiling and squealing and kept following me around for more "broccoli bites". Now I will make big batches for travelling with baby. Thanks for the recipe!

    I made these exactly as instructed and am only eating them because I made them. They are super dry and crumbly. Like, need to drink water after every bite dry. I love the idea though. If I made them again, I'd use 1 1/2 cups broccoli, 2 eggs, 1 cup cheese, and only 1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs, if that.
