Recipe Ingredients for Zucchini Bites

11 grams Squash, Summer, Zucchini, Includes Skin
1 large Egg, Whole
1/4 cup, chopped Onions
4 tbsp Parmesan, Shredded Cheese
1/4 cup Bread Crumbs
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper, Black

Recipe Directions for Zucchini Bites

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a mini-muffin tin with non-stick spray, set aside.

  2. Grate the zucchini and then place in a dish towel to squeeze out the excess water- like when using frozen spinach; if you skip this part, the middle of the zucchini tots will be really soggy while the outside gets crispy and no one wants that.

  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.
