    I added parmesan cheese, almond flour (instead of bread crumbs), a few additional seasonings, and made in a greased mini muffin pan. Good!!

    Amazing simple and easy. I added some smoked paprika on the top before cooking and also added and some garlic powder in the mix. The recipe yielded about six nuggets for me, and I ate them all in one night. I am not ashamed.

    I didn't have a potato masher so I put all the ingredients in the blender. I don't recommend doing that because the nuggets got as flat as pancakes in the oven. Also, this recipe needs A LOT of garlic to have flavor.

    terrible, turned out nothing like the picture, as well as it doesn't take into account the fact you've got to cook the broccoli in the prep time. this person should be banned for giving terrible instructions! if I could give 0 starts I would!
