2 t. vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 onion, chopped
1 bag (12 oz.) frozen broccoli, defrosted
3/4 c. panko breadcrumbs
1/2 c. sharp Cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 400°. Lightly grease a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
Heat the oil in a small pan, over medium heat, add the garlic and onions. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sauté til onions and garlic are tender and set aside to cool. Place the broccoli in a kitchen towel, wrap the towel around the broccoli and squeeze out the extra moisture. Pour the drained broccoli into a large bowl, add the onion and garlic and mix gently. To the same bowl, add the panko crumbs, cheeses, eggs, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix together and form into patties, place the broccoli cheese patties on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Flip the patties and bake for another 15 minutes or til browned and crispy.
