Love the recipe but don't like the 'deep fry' part. Is there a way to bake the balls without frying them in oil?

Even if you do not like broccoli..try this recipe....very very tasty, the mozzarella cheese melts and gives a unique taste. If serving Broccoli and Cheese Balls at a party your guests will ask for more....
