Clean and chop broccoli separating the florets from the stalk. Bring 1/2 cup water to a boil and throw in broccoli stalks, after 3 minutes add the florets, cook until slightly tender.
Place broccoli and onion in food processor, then mix in the egg, bread crumbs and salt and pepper. Heat a frying pan with olive oil to coat, drop tablepoons of the batter into the hot skillet placing them far enough apart so they don’t touch. Cook on each side until brown 1-2 minutes. Repeat until all batter is used up.
Place cooked bratkes on paper towels to drain oil. You may freeze them at this point for future use or continue with recipe after baking bratkes to warm them.
Turn oven to Broil. Lay bratkes on a baking sheet covered with parchment. Spoon tomato sauce over top and sprinkle cheese.
Put pan in the oven and broil for 2-3 minutes until cheese has browned.
