They're called zucchini bites. They are the healthy version of tater tots. The recipe for these couldn't be any easier. The original name for these was Zucchini Bites, which was okay. But when these were baking, they smelled just like tater tots. I changed up the recipe a little (by using seasoned bread crumbs,parm. cheese, & I drained the zucchini) so I decided to change the name too and called them "Zucchini Tots instead.And "tots" does mean small and these are small (baked in a mini muffin pan) so the name fits. Zucchini Bites Recipe adapted: The Naptime Chef yields: 12 mini muffins 1 cups zucchini, grated 1 egg (1 large egg equals 3-4 tbsp when whisked together) 1/4 yellow onion, diced 1/4 cup cheese (cheddar or Parmesan work the best) 1/4 cup bread crumbs - I used Italian style Salt and Pepper 1. Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a mini-muffin tin with non-stick spray, set aside. 2. Grate the zucchini and then place in a dish towel to squeeze out the excess water- like when using frozen spinach; if you skip this part, the middle of the zucchini tots will be really soggy while the outside gets crispy and no one wants that. 3. In a bowl combine, the egg, onion, cheese, bread crumbs, zucchini, salt and pepper. 4. Using a spoon or a cookie scoop, fill the muffin cups to the top. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the top is browned and set.
