    Oooh I LOVE this idea for a healthier but still fun (and cheesy!) snack. Definitely pinning to make soon!

  2. DANG!! these look so flipping good friend! Also, I loved following along on your Disney trip!

  3. Lesa says:

    Looks awesome; I can’t wait to try it. What size pan did you use and how many servings does it make?

  4. Lisa says:

    Didn’t turn out as well as I thought. Maybe a little
    More salt? Also, next time I will not put in a baking sheet because it was soggy on the bottom.

  5. Debbie says:

    Instructions are confusing.
    Is the one egg to go with the vegetables or cheese?
    Or should it have two eggs in the ingredient list?

      Hi Debbie,

      Thanks for bringing this to my attention. For some reason, that portion had been copied twice in the recipe. It’s been fixed now.

    I don’t have a blender, so I boiled the veg and then mashed with a masher and then a pastry cutter. I then removed excess water by squeezing veg in cheesecloth. I made this gluten-free by making a roux with butter and cornstarch. I sautéd garlic and the spices in the butter first. I added an extra egg and some Parmesan cheese.

    I tried these out and they tasted delicious especially with the sauce! But it just fell apart 🙁 I wonder if I just didn’t let the veggies dry out long enough. Maybe more flour should be used?Any tips for holding the sticks together more? I also used a regular 9×11 because I didn’t have the exact baking dish in the recipe. I really like this idea but I don’t want it to crumble into mush! Any help would be awesome!

  9. Lee says:

    Mine fell apart too. I stirred it together rather than in blender. Don’t think that should make a difference, but maybe. Since proportions of broccoli and cauli could be slightly different every time, and we might not have the exact same-measurement pan, it would be helpful to know approximately how thick it should be when put in pan. Thanks for delicious recipe

    I tried this recipe knowing past comments about it not holding together. I used a tad more flour and also cooked 10 mins longer prior to putting on cheese. They still required a fork. Good flavors just difficult to get in bread stick consistency.

      Okay…. Read all the posts. I not only wrung out the broccoli/cauliflower combo with paper towels until no liquid but also added grated parmesan cheese to mixture. A lot of it. Baked and broiled according to instructions. I don’t think the recipe needs to change, but I think you need to allow cooling way more than suggested. That seemed to solidify the mix. It won’t be a crispy stick but it will hold its own. I wonder, too, about pouring mixture into an oiled cast iron pan. Would that crisp and up batter better?

  11. Sara says:

    Followed all the directions but it did not turn out right. Not sure what I did wrong. Sad 🙁

  12. Zelda says:

    This sounds great, but I would wring the cauliflower and broccoli out like when you make cauliflower rice to a pulp. Will probably stick together better. Anyway will give it a try. Thanks looks like such a yummy recipe.

    hi – blogger/author of “a zesty bite” – don’t know your name, sorry! So, just read the comments for your broccoli/cauli cheese sticks – seems like it didn’t work, for many?? I didn’t even want to try, since several people said they “wrung” the veggies out till no liquid left – uhh, that is also “wringing” out all the nutrients/vitamins/minerals – arghhh! I am a very popular cooking teacher in the boston area, so I know whereof I speak – okay thanks – just my two cents.
