Directions

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.
Heat about 4 cups oil in a fryer or deep pan for frying at 350F.
Set up a shallow pan with bread crumbs.
Scoop about a 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.
