You’ll need the following ingredients:

  • Broccoli or Zucchini,
  • 1-2 eggs
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Flour
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Your choice of toppings, such as: green onion, red onion, salsa, peppers, guacamole (1 avocado + 1 lime), cilantro, shredded Mexican cheese, Feta, sour cream, etc.

Families of 6th-12th Grade attendees are also welcome (just register as the primary teen when signing up, though!).
