I just love zucchini! This past month my Dad and a good friend have been giving me tons of them. Holy smokes. When it rains, it pours. So we made a freezer full of zucchini bread and chocolate zucchini bread (yum!) We grilled enough to feed a small country =o) and I really, really wanted to make these Baked Zucchini Tots that I saw over on Christy's blog a little while back. They looked so good!
I'm trying to lose a couple of pounds so I baked these, like Christy did. It took everything in me not to deep fry them. Because I love, love, love deep fried food. But maybe that's why I need to lose a few pounds? That's a discussion for later, I think.
These were pretty tasty, even baked =o)
I doubled the recipe because I figured I needed more than just 12 of them.
Baked Zucchini Tots
Source:From Glitter to Gumdrops
* 1 cup shredded zucchini
* 1 egg
* 1/4 cup diced sweet onion (or you can use yellow onion)
* 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, shredded
* 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
Mix all of the ingredients together. I didn't have shredded Parmesan cheese so I used 1/2 grated Parmesan cheese and 1/2 shredded mozzarella cheese.
Scoop mixture into a greased mini muffin pan.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown and set on the top.
Don't they look wonderful?
