The following sponsored post featuring Broccoli Tater Tots is on behalf of Produce for Kids. Opinions expressed are that of my own.
For the 13th year, Produce for Kids is partnering with Publix to encourage shoppers to add more fruits and veggies to their carts, which in turn will benefit Feeding America.
From May 28 – July 1 the Produce for Kids Healthy Eating Campaign will offer in-store and online meal solutions with recipes and tips for families looking to embrace healthier eating habits. Many Publix stores will also host recipe demonstrations and special events with characters from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. Plus, when shoppers purchase products from more than 35 participating fresh fruit and vegetable suppliers, those companies will then make a donation to Feeding America and other community children’s organizations.

Broccoli Tater Tots Recipe
2 baking potatoes, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 cups Andy Boy® broccoli florets
1 large egg
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
– Preheat oven to 400°F.
– Place potatoes in large stockpot and add enough cold water to cover. Cover and bring to boil over high heat. Reduce to low and simmer 3 minutes. Add broccoli; don’t stir. Cover and cook 4-5 minutes, or until tender. Drain.
– Mix egg, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and garlic powder in large bowl until just combined.
-Add potatoes and broccoli to food processor. Pulse 8-10 times until finely grated. Add to breadcrumb mixture and stir to combine.
-Use tablespoon to scoop potato mixture into 40 mounds. Shape each into an oval and place on parchment-lined baking sheet. (I used a non stick sheet)
-Bake 10 minutes; flip and bake 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
These Broccoli Tater Tots were easy to make, and were an excellent side for Chicken Sandwiches.
