Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups chopped broccoli florets
  • 4 slices cooked bacon chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled
  • 1 ½ tbsp coconut flour or can use ⅓ cup almond flour instead
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 ½ tbsp to 3 red hot pepper sauce I used this one *optional
  • 1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese * can omit for dairy free
  • 1 ½ tbsp Parmesan cheese *can omit for dairy free
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil or other oil of choice, for frying
  • Optionally Garnish Each with:
  • 1 tsp sour cream or paleo sour cream
  • ½ tsp extra red hot pepper sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • In a food processor or blender combine the first three ingredients and pulse until the broccoli, garlic and bacon are minced.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine: the minced broccoli garlic and bacon, coconut flour, eggs, red pepper sauce, grated cheese, parmesan cheese, sea salt, and pepper. Mix together thoroughly.
  • Place spoonfuls ( about1 ½ tbsps) of the dough onto the parchment paper, lightly smashing them down with the back of your spoon to a pattie like shape. Repeat until all dough is used.
  • Bake for 12 minutes or until firm and no longer sticky. Remove from oven and cool enough to handle.
  • Heat a large frying pan and the avocado oil or oil of choice to medium high heat. Fry broccoli bites, a few at a time for a minute or two on each side until browned and crisp. Remove from pan and repeat. Serve with a little optional sour cream (or paleo sour cream) and more red pepper sauce.
