Broccoli Rice Cheddar Bites – Healthy & Delicious

I’m constantly on a search to find delicious recipes to make healthy food that much more enjoyable! I saw this recipe and it looked really good so I thought I would give it a try.

I only had 1 head of broccoli, which weight out to be able 6oz. The original recipe it calls for thawed broccoli, I personally prefer to use fresh I rarely ever (okay, never) keep frozen vegetables in my house. So I steamed the vegetables just a bit, still hard and crunchy enough that once I baked them they wouldn’t be complete mush!

I put the eggs and ranch together then added the chicken broth, the rice, the broccoli, & the cheddar cheese. Put them in the oven at 375 and let them cook for 25 minutes and voila!

Ingredients

  • 1  head lightly steamed fresh broccoli
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup white rice (I used 5-minute rice)
  • 1/4 cup Ranch Dressing
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup grated cheese (I used old cracker barrel)
  • 1/2 tsp salt and pepper – to taste

Directions

Boil rice. Move cooked rice onto a plate and spread it thin so it cools down quickly. Throw all the other ingredients in a bowl, but only mix in half of the cheese. Grease muffin tin. I got approx. 10 muffin tins. Put in the oven at 375 and bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. See link before for original recipe.
