Zucchini Bites

This is another recipe I found off of Pinterest. So far everything is really hit or miss, and luckily this one was a hit! (Unlike the time I tried angel cake mix with pie filling. No good.)

They’re pretty easy to make (and eat) and they involve a veggie (yay!) and cheese (double yay!). You need:

1 zucchini

1/4 cup breadcrumbs (we use Italian flavored)

1/4 cup parmesan or mozzarella cheese

1 egg

Salt and pepper

Grate/Shred the zucchini. Then, press it down on a few paper towels. In the original recipe I read it said if you skipped this step, they would turn out mushy and I have to say that there is a lot more water in zucchini than I realized. So I think it’s important.

Then just mix everything in a bowl, and scoop into a mini muffin pan. You could probably also just spoon them onto a cookie sheet if you don’t have a pan. Bake for 20 minutes at 350. They should be nice a golden brown.

Here’s an image of the zuchini tots and a delicious turkey burger with herbed goat cheese. It’s a little blurry, but you get the idea:
