Baked Broccoli Fritters

If you're looking for a great snack using broccoli, these baked fritters are delicious.

Perfect served with any meal and they can be air fried, fried in oil, or baked.

Just around any riced vegetables will work great with this recipe if you're not a fan of broccoli.

These even freeze well and can be reheated and wrapped in foil in the oven for another meal.
