I was surprised by these broccoli cheddar nuggets. They're actually really good. My kids love dipping them in ketchup, they put it on everything! I don't mind it, so long as they get their vegetables.

These broccoli and cheddar nuggets are addicting! I made them for my niece and nephew, but after trying one I couldn't stop! They were super cheesy and easy to make. If you like broccoli and cheese, you'll love this! Perfect for the little ones, and good enough for the adults too!

They look and taste like nuggies, but they're... healthy?

These were good, but they were a little crumby. I think it would have tasted better if it was chicken, broccoli, and cheddar nuggets. My kids also thought they were good, but not great. We also used Italian-style bread crumbs, so if I make these again I would use regular bread crumbs and probably add meat.

The only thing I changed in this recipe was I added salt and pepper. It's hard not to snack while you're cooking, these are so yummy!

If I could find a way to make this recipe egg-free I would give it five stars. The nuggets were really delicious, easy to make, and kid friendly. I used homemade bread crumbs too.

Overall good flavor, but I’m not big on the texture. I like mine dipped in southwest chipotle ranch

These were absolutely amazing I’ve made them 3 times now, and they’re really good cold as left overs too!
