Broccoli Bites

Great way to have your Veggies

3 eggs
6 ounces shredded Monterey jack cheese
6 ounces shredded Colby cheese
1 (16 ounce) box frozen chopped broccoli, thawed, drained and dried
2 1/2 ounces bacon pieces
1/2 ounce diced yellow onion
1 ounce all-purpose flour
Italian bread crumbs as needed

Honey Mustard Dressing
3/4 cup sour cream
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup Dijon mustard
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Drain thawed broccoli thoroughly by pressing through a strainer. Beat eggs in a
mixing bowl with a whisk until well blended. Place all the ingredients into a
plastic container, except the bread crumbs. Stir together with a spatula until
thoroughly combined. Refrigerate mixture for about 1 hour. This will help to
bind the mix making preparation much easier.
Heat about 4 cups oil in a fryer or deep pan for frying at 350 F. Set up
a shallow pan with bread crumbs. Scoop about 1/2 ounce portion of the broccoli
mixture into the bread crumbs. Form each portion into a ball and coat it well.
Place broccoli bites into the fry basket or frying pan. Make sure they do not
stick together. Fry for one minute, then remove and place onto a plate lined
with paper towels to absorb excess oil.

Serve with Honey Mustard Dressing
In a mixing bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise and mustard. Blend thoroughly
using a whisk. Slowly pour in the honey and lemon juice, continue mixing until
smooth and well combined.
