Preparation:

Step 1

Heat oven to 400°. Coat a wire rack with nonstick cooking spray and place inside rimmed baking sheet.

Step 2

Trim broccoli and cut florets into 1-inch pieces. Peel stalks and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Place broccoli in a steamer basket fitted into a saucepan with 1/2-inch of water. Cover and steam over medium heat for 9 minutes or until tender. Remove broccoli from saucepan and place in bowl of a food processor; pulse until roughly chopped.

Step 3

Combine egg, yogurt, 1/3 cup of the Parmesan, ham, 5 tablespoons of the breadcrumbs, flour, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the pepper in a bowl. Stir in broccoli until well blended.

Step 4

Stir together remaining 1/3 cup Parmesan, 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs, 1/4 teaspoon salt, crushed corn flakes and oil in a shallow pie plate.

Step 5

Scoop 1/4 cup broccoli mixture into crumb mixture and spoon crumbs over top, pressing crumbs to adhere to both sides. Place patty on prepared rack and spritz with nonstick cooking spray; repeat with remaining broccoli mixture. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and serve immediately. Best if consumed the same day.
