Favorite Zucchini Tots

They are such a delicious way to transform zucchini into a lunch or dinner main dish.

Ingredients:  – Zucchini – Egg – Plain breadcrumbs – Shredded cheddar cheese – Italian seasoning – Salt

1

Line a bowl with a clean kitchen towel and grate the zucchini with a box grater or hand-held grater. Wrap up the towel and squeeze out as much liquid as you can.

2

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Measure out 1 cup of the grated, dry zucchini.

3

Add to a medium bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Stir well. (You may need to use clean hands to get the batter uniformly mixed.)

4

Use a tablespoon measuring spoon to portion out rounds, pressing and forming them into tot shapes. Place onto the prepared baking pan.

5

Bake for 16-18 minutes or until golden brown around the edges and firm to the touch. Serve with fruit or raw veggies as an easy meal.

Store cooled tots in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Warm in a toaster oven or in a 375 degree F oven for 6-8 minutes.
