As Chris prepared some mean hamburgers, I whipped up some zucchini tots. These bite-sized tots are the perfect guilt-free alternative that complete our hamburger night. Just a little prep work and pop those tots in the oven. Nothing to it!- Amanda
1 cup zucchini, grated- like a cheese grater- The whole zucchini!
1 large egg
1/4 onion, diced
1/4 cup cheddar cheese
1 T parmesan, grated
1/8 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/8 cup Panko
Salt and Pepper
Take grated zucchini and by using paper towels squeeze out the excess water. This will make sure your tots are not soggy. No one likes a soggy tot! In a bowl combine all ingredients: egg, onion, cheese, bread crumbs, Panko, zucchini, salt and pepper.
Prepare mini muffin pan by spraying with non-stick spray. Using a spoon, fill the muffin cups to the top. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes, or until the top is browned and set. Makes about 12 tots.

These look incredibly cute! Who would have thought of using all that darn zucchini for tots?!
We’ve got a Zucchini Pickle recipe and Zucchini Pancakes, but I think these take the (zucchini) cake! LOL!
