1 head broccoli, cut into florets
¼ cup green onion, chopped
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
½ cup rolled oats, ground
¼ cup Panko breadcrumbs
½ cup sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2 large eggs, lightly beaten (+ 1 additional egg, as needed)
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
½ black pepper
½ teaspoon cayenne (optional)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Lightly spray parchment paper with cooking spray.
Chop broccoli florets into small pieces. Transfer to a large bowl. Add both cheeses, chopped green onion, minced garlic, ground oats, Panko breadcrumbs, kosher salt, cayenne, and black pepper.
Add 2 eggs lightly beaten and, with clean hands, mix until combined. Add 1 additional egg if the mixture is too dry.
Scoop 2 tablespoons of the mixture and roll into balls. Place broccoli cheese fritters onto the prepared baking dish. Drizzle with two tablespoons of vegetable oil.
Bake for 15 minutes then remove from oven to turn fritters over. Continue to bake for an additional 10-12 minutes or until fritters are golden brown.
Remove from oven and transfer to a serving dish. Enjoy!
