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!!!"

"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)."

"we love broccoli so decided to try this, it turned out great! But instead of fresh broccoli I used frozen broccoli as I did not want to go to the store for fresh. will surely make this again."

"As a previous reviewer did, I made these with honey lime walleye (instead of chicken) and they were fantastic. A little salty for my taste, but otherwise loved them. I also had a soy chile aioli dipping sauce to go with them, but it really wasn't necessary."

"Made tonight with honey lime chicken. The broccoli fritters were great. I did not try salsa. I may double the batter mix as mine was not as battered as shown."
