another recipe for the kids

An easy healthy treat for toddlers!

Broccoli Potato Patties
2 cups broccoli, steamed and finely chopped
1 cup mashed potato (I boiled one large chopped up potato and it made exactly 1 cup)
1 cup grated cheese (I used gouda, cheddar would be great)
2 egg yolks
2 tbsp chopped fresh dill (optional)
1 garlic clove, grated or finely chopped
olive oil for cooking

Combine broccoli, potato, cheese, egg, dill and garlic in a large mixing bowl, mix well. With slightly wet hands (so the mixture won't stick to your hands) make balls of about 2 tbsp of mixture, flatten them.
Heat a little bit of olive oil in a large non stick fry pan over low-medium heat and in batches cook the patties until golden brown on both sides (about 4 minutes a side).

This makes 24 patties, I'll be freezing about 2/3 of them and keeping the rest for Hannah to eat now. She has already eaten 2.

These could be made adult friendly with a dash of hot sauce, a bit of parmesan and salt and pepper added to the mix. Dipped in a homemade yogurt sauce they are a tasty treat.
