These cute cakes offer a fun and kid-friendly way to use up broccoli. They're tasty as a side dish paired with any meat, or serve them with salsa and a dollop of fat-free sour cream for a festive appetizer. —Tracy Eubanks, Ewing, Kentucky

Didn't care for them. As another reviewer stated...I'd rather have steamed broccoli with parmesan cheese. So disappointed!!!

What a great side dish and way to do something different with garden fresh broccoli.

I haven't made these yet but they look similar to a recipe I do make using finely chopped steamed cauliflower. My recipe also has some chopped yellow or white onion in the batter. Try it.

These were definitely lacking in flavor. I would rather just have steamed broccoli with a little parmesan cheese.

I love this recipe, mostly because it's the only way my children willingly eat broccoli! I have used both fresh and frozen broccoli, and we have eaten them plain or with a dollop of sour cream. This pairs nicely with grilled meats (we also often serve it with the honey lime chicken).
