Zucchinis are by far one of my favorite vegetables, especially in the Summer when they are at their peek!  My dad and Seth’s Dad grows them and last year we had baskets full. After a while of sauteing them, it got old. So like a normal girl on pinterest I did some research for something more creative to do with all these zucchinis I had. & Viola! I found a recipe Via: The Naptime Chef however did make a few changes. Boy were they delicious and so easy to make! You can them as a great appetizer, snack, breakfast, or lunch! Might I also mention my Toddler loves them as well!  So here it is:

Zucchini Bites

1 cups zucchini, grated

1 large beaten egg (added little milk in with mine)

1/4 yellow onion, diced 

1/4 cup cheddar shredded cheese

1/4 cup parmesan shredded cheese

1/4 cup panko (optional-made without them, just as good!)

1 tablespoon garlic powder

Salt and Pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Spray cupcake pan with Pam or alternative non-stick method.
2. Grate Zucchini with cheese grater and set shreds aside on paper towels to soak up excess water, I found this making the “tots” crispy and tasting better. I let them set for about 5-10 minutes
3. In bowl mix all ingredients together then with a big spoon fill in cupcake pan  just to the top. Bake  for 15-18 minutes or until the top is golden and bubbly.
4. Try and share, they are addictive, batches can be double or tripled easily! This recipe yields 12.
