  1. Grate the broccoli on the large holes of a box grater.
  2. Transfer the grated broccoli to a medium bowl and season with ¼ teaspoon of the salt, then toss to combine. Let the broccoli sit for 20 minutes until the salt has drawn out some of the moisture.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Pour the broccoli into a clean kitchen towel and twist to squeeze out as much liquid as possible
  5. Return the grated broccoli to the bowl and add the panko, chives, cheddar, garlic, remaining ¼ teaspoon of salt, the black pepper, and egg. Mix until well combined.
  6. Shape the mixture into 15 tots and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 20-24 minutes, flipping halfway through, until golden brown.
  8. Serve with your choice of dipping sauce.
  9. Enjoy!
