Well.. now we have taken to of my obsessions and mixed them together into the perfect crispy snack that will be a hit at any party.. even more of a hit with the kids.. and its decently healthy

Ingredients:

  • 5 cups vegetable oil for frying

  • 3 1/2 cups dry bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place broccoli in a medium saucepan with 1 cup boiling water. Return to a boil. Cook covered until firm but tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the Cheddar cheese. Mix in the broccoli. Allow the mixture to cool and thicken approximately 15 minutes.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix the bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Spread the mixture onto a large piece of wax paper.
  5. Form the broccoli cheese mixture into balls and roll in the bread crumb mixture until thoroughly coated.
