"Listen to your broccoli and it will tell you how to eat it." -Anne Lamott

The refrigerator light goes on...

These crunchy bites make a perfect snack. They are quick and easy to put together and go great with a number of dips such as Blue Cheese Dressing or Buffalo Sauce.

The tips for this recipe: thoroughly coat the broccoli with the egg before adding the breadcrumbs, and make sure that there is enough space on the baking sheet so that the broccoli doesn't touch. If they are too close together, the broccoli will not get as crisp.
