bennigan s broccoli bites


if you've ever been to bennigan's, you may have enjoyed this wonderful appetizer. we go there quite often for them. they're basically a blend of broccoli, cheeses, bacon, and onion, rolled in bread crumbs and deep-fried. they are then dipped in a special honey-mustard sauce. this is a copycat recipe from the website recipe goldmine and it's right on the money! they're very easy to make and if you want to wow your party guests with something deliciously different, by gosh- this'll do it!
