Make up a batch of these delicious Broccoli Cheddar Hash Brown Muffins - fuss free, simple to make and only a few ingredients.
Cheesy Broccoli Cheddar Hash Browns
One thing I love is patties, bites or muffins where I can throw a few ingredients together and have some easy to grab snacks or meals.
It's amazing what foods in my fridge or pantry can do to inspire a new recipe and that is exactly what happened here.
I had some fresh broccoli that really needed to be used up and well me being me, some plain ole broccoli just wouldn't do and knowing I had a busy weekend ahead, I figured something that was easy to grab was a must.
These homemade Syn Free Crispy Golden Hash Browns are really popular in my house, so I figured why not combine the two together into a delicious Syn Free Broccoli Cheddar Hash Brown Muffins.
For the crispy golden hash browns, I parboil the potatoes before grating to get them nice and crispy, but there is no need to do that for these, as with combining the broccoli these are going to cook differently.
Making Broccoli Cheddar Hash Brown Muffins
Now I know you are thinking, do I really need to grate all those potatoes and broccoli? and well yes you do, but I cheated and didn't do it by hand. I used my awesome Nutri Ninja Blender and Food Processor with Auto IQ technology I love the food processor bowl with grating disc, as it takes all that hard work out of grating and is really great for recipes like this.
When you add the mix to the muffin tray, make sure you push the mixture down nice and tightly, it will help them form together so they come out perfect muffin shaped.
What to serve with Broccoli Cheddar Hash Brown Muffins?
Wondering how to serve these Broccoli Cheddar Hash Brown Muffins?. They would make a great side to a main course instead of these syn free chips or syn free mashed potatoes or serve them alongside some soup instead of using your HEb on bread. You could even make this the main part of your meal and just serve with some extra veggies and chips. A great meat alternative if you fancy a meat free day or are vegetarian.
I also loved these Broccoli Cheddar Hash Brown Muffins topped with some perfectly poached eggs and these Pork Sausage Breakfast Patties - Delicious!!
