  • 8 ounces broccoli, cut into small pieces or chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 Tbsp oat fiber or almond flour, or powdered pork rinds (regular flour if not low carb)
  • 1 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil or your favorite



  • Cut fresh broccoli crowns and stems into 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch pieces. Steam lightly in the microwave or in a steamer. Drain any excess water and dry with paper towels if wet. (If using leftover broccoli, drain well and chop into small bite-sized pieces.)


  • Toss or stir the broccoli with your flour of choice and the Cajun seasoning to coat. Add the egg and stir. Add the cheddar cheese and stir until thoroughly combined.


  • Place a cast iron or non-stick pan over medium heat until hot. Add the oil and swirl to coat the pan. A non stick pan needs less oil. Visually divide the mixture into fourths and spoon into the pan, arranging in a low mound or patty. Scrape any tumbled pieces back into the piles. 
  • Cook on one side until the cheese on the top of the patty begins to melt and the bottom is crusty brown, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side until browned. 
  • Makes 4 large patties, 2.8 NC each. Serve topped with an egg or with a dipping sauce. 



[NOTE] Use a 1/4 cup measure for smaller broccoli fritters. I was able to get 9 fritters which made a nice afternoon snack for my family. SAUCE: I Googled "remoulade sauce" and found many easy tasty recipes available. I used one of them.
