I happened upon Dr. Praegers while wandering around the grocery store’s frozen organic food section one day. It looked yummy to me as an adult and the label was easy to understand – broccoli, potato, onion, egg whites, oat bran, canola oil, arrowroot, garlic, salt, and black pepper. When my son saw me eating “potato” he asked for some and it is all history after that. Now he asks for potato which is technically what he is getting but it has broccoli mixed in which is an added bonus. Dr. Praegers also has spinach ones and options in kid sizes. Each patty has about 80 calories and 3.5 grams of fat which isn’t bad at all!
Cooking them is easy – the package recommends in the oven or the toaster for 10 minutes but I’ve been known to microwave them for 2 minutes on a paper towel and that works well too. Either way, use a paper towel to dab the patty prior to serving because there was a little oil that I was able to remove and that can only make it healthier for your little one.
Jessica Seinfeld wrote a book about how to hide vegetables, why not just let someone else do it for you.
Dr. Praegers is sold at locations such as Costco, Whole Foods, Stop & Shop among others.
