Easy Mini Broccoli-Cheese Pies

The original recipe for these called for chicken, but I figured there's nothing better than the simple combination of broccoli and cheese. Am I right?

These would make the perfect appetizer or party food. They're just tiny bites of full flavor. Yum.

Broccoli-Cheese Mixture
½ Tbsp. oil
2 cups broccoli florets

2. Heat oil and cook broccoli about five minutes. Mix in salt, onion powder and pepper. Cool 5 minutes; stir in cheese.
3. In medium bowl, stir baking mixture ingredients with whisk or fork until blended. Spoon 1 scant tablespoon baking mixture into each muffin cup. Top with about 1/4 cup broccoli-cheese mixture. Spoon 1 tablespoon baking mixture onto broccoli-cheese mixture in each muffin cup.
