The boys always want to ‘help’ in the kitchen. Since that is a habit I want to encourage I try to find tasks for them to do. I also notice that when they help prepare dinner they are more excited about eating dinner. Not that getting a house full of boys excited about eating is ever too difficult. But to really put them over the moon I had them help prepare some Broccoli Cheese Bites. I might even call them Broccoli Extreme Cheese Bites.
What makes the broccoli bites extreme? That would be their secret ingredient, Goldfish® Flavor Blasted® XTra Cheddar.
You might be familiar with Goldfish crackers and the perfect snack solution, but now you can add them to your dinner menu as well. With only 4 ingredients they are the perfect snack or side dish for the kids to help make. And for my kids the recipe contains all the tasks they enjoy: a little chopping, a little measuring, and some mixing.
Simply combine steamed chopped broccoli, eggs, shredded cheese, and crushed Goldfish crackers in a bowl. Then spoon them out into a prepared muffin pan and bake.
I picked up a 30 oz bulk carton of both the Cheddar and the Flavor Blasted® XTra Cheddar at Walmart.
You will definitely elicit a smile when you pull out a carton of Goldfish crackers and tell your family that it’s an ingredient for dinner. And when it means that kids are excited to eat broccoli that’s a win-win for parents and kids.
Do you love to cook with your kids? What kind of kid friendly recipe would you create with Goldfish crackers?

Do you think I could substitute the egg with something else? Maybe butter?
I’ve never tried an egg substitute for this recipe, but I would probably try to use ground flaxseed. You can mix 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed with 2 to 3 tablespoons of water for an egg substitute. You could also try a similar ratio using chia seeds.
Tofu or Greek yogurt might also work as an egg substitute for this recipe.
