*makes 40-50 nuggets
2 large russet potatoes, peeled an cubed into 2-inch pieces
2 medium carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup broccoli florets
1/2 cup frozen corn kernels, defrosted
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 cup flour
2 large eggs, whisked
1 cup breadcrumbs
Steam potatoes for 15 minutes with carrots. In the last 5 minutes add steamed broccoli (for a total of 20 minutes). Put carrots, broccoli, and defrosted corn (also can use fresh), in the food processor and chop up into tiny pieces. Mash-up potatoes in a bowl (just a little bit) and after add the vegetables. Then mix in seasoning (garlic, onion, and salt).
Take a sheet tray and spread the mix so that it is 1/2 inch thick on the tray. Pat it down and make sure it’s pretty smooth and even. Put it into the freezer for 30 minutes before cutting into fun shapes! (If mixture gets too soft, just pop it back in the freezer for about 10 minutes and you can start cutting again.)
Put cutouts into flour, egg wash, and breadcrumbs. Set nuggets on sheet tray in freezer for 30 minutes and let them firm up. (If you want keep them for later, use baggies so when you’re ready to cook, all you do is pop them out and broil them.) Broil for 2 minutes on each side and you’re done!
