  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix topping ingredients and set aside.
  3. Chop broccoli into small pieces. Place in boiling water and cook just until tender crisp (about 2 minutes). Drain & Cool.
  4. Mix broccoli and remaining ingredients in a bowl.
  5. Grease a muffin tin very well and press about 1/2 cup of rice mixture into each well. Sprinkle with topping and gently press so breadcrumbs will adhere.
