    Christmas Carol's Note:

    If you've ever been to Bennigan's, you may have enjoyed this wonderful appetizer. We go there quite often for them. They're basically a blend of broccoli, cheeses, bacon, and onion, rolled in bread crumbs and deep-fried. They are then dipped in a special honey-mustard sauce. This is a copycat recipe from the website Recipe Goldmine and it's right on the money! They're very easy to make and if you want to WOW your party guests with something deliciously different, by gosh- this'll do it!

      Was going to post this, but it's already here! My recipe had the "ounces" converted to "tablespoons" which is easier for me - 5 tablespoons bacon bits, 1 tablespoon minced onion, 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour.

      * Note: I prefer to use fresh broccoli because the freezer kind contain tough stalks and very little on the florets. I steam just a bit and chop it up, let cool, and dry out. Then do the recipe as uaual.
      Divine- don't be shy with the cheese and bacon.

      Absolutely delicious and easy to make! My daughter made first and used fresh broccoli. She used the florets (2 cups) keeping a little bit of the stem then cut into smaller pieces. Note: If the pieces are a little too big they won't stick together that well. She used a 12 oz. bag of mixed monterey jack and colby Cheese. And, she also used 1 1/2 teaspoons of onion powder since she doesn't like real ones. If mixture not sticking well, add an extra egg. We used the small Pampered Chef scoop to form balls. When making the dip, you could cut in half because in my opinion it makes too much for the amount of broccoli bites made from this mixture.
