These broccoli cheese bites are very quick to make and bake. They are packed with vitamin C from the broccoli and protein from the Greek yogurt and cheddar cheese. Feel free to throw in other vegetables or toppings to use up ingredients that you have.
The bites can be stored in the freezer for up to three months after baking. I recommend freezing them in individual freezer bags so that they can be pulled out, reheated, and enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even a snack!
