1 lb. steamed broccoli florets
2 jumbo eggs
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
4 tbsp. flour
1 garlic clove, minced
salt and pepper, to taste
vegetable oil, for frying

Bring a medium-sized pot of salted water to a boil. Add the broccoli florets and cook them just until they are fork-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain the broccoli well and transfer them to a cutting board. Using a large, sharp knife, cut them into very small pieces.
In a medium-sized bowl, combine the chopped broccoli, eggs, Parmesan, flour, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir until well 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). Scoop out 2- to 3-tablespoon mounds of the broccoli mixture into the pan, flattening the mounds slightly with a spatula and spacing them about one inch apart.

Cook the fritters for 2 to 3 minutes, flip them once, and cook them for an additional 1 to 2 minutes until they’re golden brown and cooked through. (*See recipe note below for baking instructions).
 Serve warm with yogurt or sour cream.

Recipe Notes
If you wish to bake these broccoli fritters instead, follow steps 1-3. Once you have arranged the fritters on the hot, oven-safe skillet, place them in the preheated to 425⁰F oven, and bake for 10-13 minutes.
