Broccoli and Cheese Nuggets

If you are looking for a healthy and easy entree to serve your toddler, try this recipe!

1 16-oz package frozen broccoli, cooked, drained, and chopped
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
3 eggs
oregano, garlic, and pepper

1. Heat oven to 375 and lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil
2. Combine all remaining ingredients and mix well.
3. Shape mixture into nuggets and place on baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, turn nuggets over after 15 minutes.

I love this recipe because it makes a big batch of nuggets and Rose adores them! The night I make them, I keep 3-4 in the fridge and freeze the rest for Rose to eat later. To freeze, simply arrange the nuggets in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze over night. The next day, put them in a zip lock. I reheat 1-2 of them for about 30 seconds when ready to serve.
Recipe from http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/ It's a great resource for anyone interested in making their own babyfood.
