Put the broccoli into a steamer, or boil, for 5-6 minutes until tender. Leave to cool completely, then finely chop. In a bowl mix the mashed potato, cheese, chicken, spring onion, cooled broccoli, half of the breadcrumbs and half the beaten egg. For babies aged 12+ months, you can add seasoning. Then, shape into 8 sausage shapes and coat in the remaining egg and roll in the remaining breadcrumbs, then chill for 30 minutes. After chilling, heat a little oil in a pan and sauté until golden and heated through.
