These cheesy baked broccoli tots are like broccoli cheddar soup on steroids. You basically take all of that deliciousness but add a little crunch to it by smashing these patties into flat little discs, and then baking them until they are golden brown all along the edges.

The key to making them crispy is LOTS of cheese and extra baking time. That, and making sure you drain the excess liquid from your frozen broccoli rice or cauliflower rice.

Servings: 16 tots


  • 1 (10oz) bag frozen broccoli rice* (about 2 cups)

  3. In a bowl, mix together the broccoli rice, shredded cheese, egg, almond flour and seasoning to taste.
  4. Make about 16 small balls with the mixture and place them evenly on your baking sheet. Smoosh them with your hands to flatten them out a bit.
  5. In the center rack, bake for about 15 minutes (or until they start to brown), and then flip them over and contintue baking for another 8-10 minutes.
  6. Eat alone or serve with a low carb sauce.
