{Tasty Tuesday} Broccoli & Cauliflower Cheesy Patties


Welcome to the 2nd edition of Tasty Tuesday!!

Did you have a chance to try that decadent recipe from last week? If not, you can find the post here.

This week something much healthier on the menu. Probably prompted by my body wanting to detox after all that chocolate slice…oops!

As with most mothers, I am always on the look out for healthy meal options, packed full of veggies, that are still great tasting for little people. My toddler was a big fan of veggies once, but not so much now. These patties she will devour with ease!



1/2 head of broccoli

1/2 head of cauliflower

1 cup of breadcrumbs

3 large eggs

1.5 cups of grated cheddar cheese

Salt, pepper and seasoning



1. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Cover 2 trays with baking paper.


3. Steam your veggies until soft. Once cooled, dice into small pieces.

2. Mix breadcrumbs, eggs & cheese in large bowl. Add seasoning to taste.


3. Add in your steamed veggies and mix well.

4. Using your hands, roll mix into large balls and flatten on trays in shape of patties.


5. Bake in oven until golden brown. Approximately 15-20 minutes. Flip halfway if needed.

Now all that’s left to do is enjoy! They are usually a lot ‘greener’ but I was a little low on broccoli that day. Still great either way and work with just broccoli or just cauliflower as well as a mix of the two.


Do you have any great recipes for sneaking veggies in for your kids?

    • They totally are… And as much as I love them, here I am snacking on m&ms. Eeek… now I feel guilty haha I hadn’t thought of what a great snack these would make but my daughter does exactly that between meals with the left overs.


  1. Here via the Fab Friday Foodie link up. I have been a bit obsessed with cauliflower fritters of late, trying to come up with the perfect recipe. These look so good, and I love that they have broccoli too.
