Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

Fresh steamed broccoli can be used in place of the frozen, please make certain to hand-squeeze out excess moisture in the broccoli before using in this recipe, These make a wonderful side dish to any meal. Yield amount is for 1-inch balls only and is only approximate, you can shape into size desired. Plan ahead the mixture needs to chill for 4 hours before shaping into balls.

I used dried minced onion, I didn't have any problem w/stuffing being wet. The flavor was awesome-but....we all found this very salty, and would omit the seasoning salt, I went w/1 tsp. garlic powder, and would decrease that to 1/2 tsp.
