Zucchini Bites


These are fabulous. So fabulous I've made them a number of times since my first foray into the idea. I got this idea from a recipe, but changed the ingredients around a bit and changed the ratios to make them into how I like them. These are super simple to make, and great to have in the fridge to heat up in the toaster oven for a quick snack- fantastic!! Let's get going.

Your arsenal- zucchini, onion, cheese, egg, breadcrumbs. Pretty easy!
Mix together your 'dry' ingredients first.
And here's the finished zucchini mixture with eggs and all added.
Press into 12 mini muffin cups- greased!
Here they are just out of the oven- pulling away from the sides and starting to brown. Yummmmm!

Zucchini Bites
1 medium zucchini- grated then squeezed dry- about 1 cup
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 large onion, diced (or 1/2 small/medium onion)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients- use a fork or get your hands in there- and make it all uniform.
Spoon mixture into mini-muffin tins (makes 12) and press down the mixture in the muffin cups so that it will all stay together once baked.
Bake at 400 F for 16-18 minutes.

The finished bites- perfect as a side dish for any meal of the day, or great as a snack!

Savor it!
love, rue
