Description

A tasty way to eat zucchini. They smell like tater tots when they are in the oven.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Zucchini, Grated
  • 1  Egg
  • ¼ whole Yellow Onion, Diced Or Grated
  • ¼ cups Cheese (cheddar Or Parmesan Work Best)
  • ¼ cups Italian Style Bread Crumbs
  • Salt And Pepper

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Spray a mini-muffin tin with nonstick spray, set aside.
2. Grate the zucchini and then place it in a dish towel and squeeze out the excess water, like you would do with frozen spinach.
3. In a bowl combine, the egg, onion, cheese, bread crumbs, zucchini, salt and pepper.
4. Using a spoon or a cookie scoop, fill the muffin cups to the top. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the top is browned and set.

Note: you can saute the onions before adding it to the mix if you want a milder flavor.

(Original recipe for Zucchini Bites from The Naptime Chef.)

Hi! This is a recipe from my cookbook and website and I don’t appreciate it being published on this site in full without permission.

the recipe is almost exactly like zucchini cakes, or fritters. I think that baking them in the muffin tins is a great idea and not so messy (and less fattening) than sauteing them in oil. Can’t wait to try it, thanks for the idea

this recipe sounds great! I’m going to wait for zucchini season to try these, and I’m sure they’ll be wonderful. When I make them, I’ll leave a review. Thanks so much!

Husband LOVED these! Had to bake them a little longer than suggested though. That helped to avoid the mushy middle. Will def make these again.

These came out great! The previous comment about them being too mushy may have been because the zucchini wasn’t squeezed enough to get rid of all the water. I had to modify it a little bit to fit what we had in the pantry (i.e. panko instead of italian crumbs). The only thing I would suggest is to salt the zucchini and let sit for a little while to help release more of the moisture.

Was edible but the mushy centers weren’t very appetizing; wish it was a bit more crispy throughout like on the outside of the tot. I really like the concept though.

Made these for dinner tonight. They were so good I ate half of the pan! Will definitely be making these again.
