Zucchini Tots – Low Carb

Zucchini Tots Needing a side dish for dinner tonight?? WARNING ~ these are ADDICTING!! I know you are like 'what another zucchini recipe' but YES I mean I love zucchini already but these Zucchini tots top the cake for me!! Not only are they kid-friendly but zucchini tots are the perfect solution for helping the fam get their veggies while enjoying a healthier version of a tot! I prefer to make them in the mini muffin tins for a perfect little bite size dish! Be sure to SHARE so you can find it easier later! Zucchini Tots Ingredients: 1 cup zucchini, grated 1 large egg 1/4 medium onion, diced 1/4 cup reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese, grated 1/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs salt and pepper to taste cooking spray Directions: Preheat oven to 400°. Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Grate the zucchini into a clean dish towel. Wring all of the excess water out of the zucchini. In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients and season with salt and pepper to taste. Fill each muffin section to the top, pushing down on the filling with your spoon so it's nice and compacted so they don't fall apart when you take them out of the tin. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until the tops are golden... I prefer mine a little well done, so just watch them to cook a little longer if you want it that way as well. Use a plastic knife or rubber spatula around the edges of each tot to remove them from the muffin tin. Enjoy!!
