Parmesan Broccoli Balls

Recipe by Claire de Luna

This is an excellent hot appetizer, and a particular favorite of mine to serve with any kind of meatballs. These always go fast once they come out of the oven, and are a good way to sneak in some tasty vegetables.

These are so good I could make a whole meal of them! They seem like comfort food. DS even tried them and he normally won't eat vegetables. The cheese and the stuffing give them a great taste. I did need some extra parmesan for the rolling step. We will be making this recipe a lot! Thanks.
