Bacon Buffalo Broccoli Bites

By superadminApril 22, 2015

Serves: 12

Ingredients

  • 1¾ cups chopped broccoli florets
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 ½ tbsp coconut flour, or can use ⅓ cup almond flour instead
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 ½ to 3 tbsp red hot pepper sauce, I used this one *optional
  • ⅓ cup grated cheddar cheese * can omit for dairy free
  • 1 ½ tbsp Parmesan cheese *can omit for dairy free
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ⅓ tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil, or other oil of choice, for frying
  • Optionally Garnish Each with:
  • 1 tsp sour cream or paleo sour cream
  • ½ tsp extra red hot pepper sauce
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. In a food processor or blender combine the first three ingredients and pulse until the broccoli, garlic and bacon are minced.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine: the minced broccoli garlic and bacon, coconut flour, eggs, red pepper sauce, grated cheese, parmesan cheese, sea salt, and pepper. Mix together thoroughly.
  4. Place spoonfuls ( about1 ½ tbsps) of the dough onto the parchment paper, lightly smashing them down with the back of your spoon to a pattie like shape. Repeat until all dough is used.
  5. Bake for 12 minutes or until firm and no longer sticky. Remove from oven and cool enough to handle.
  6. Heat a large frying pan and the avocado oil or oil of choice to medium high heat. Fry broccoli bites, a few at a time for a minute or two on each side until browned and crisp. Remove from pan and repeat. Serve with a little optional sour cream (or paleo sour cream) and more red pepper sauce.
