Cuisine: American
Servings: 4
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded zucchini with skins, drained with strainer or towel (it must be dry)
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese (I used a Cheddar/Monterey Jack combo) Please note: I've used Mozzarella cheese in the recipe as well. Just about any cheese should work.
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs (I used plain)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried sweet basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Place some parchment paper on a cookie sheet and spray with vegetable spray and set aside. Combine the zucchini, slightly beaten egg, cheese, bread crumbs, and seasonings, as stated above. Mix thoroughly. I use a cookie scoop for the zucchini bites, but you can use a tablespoon, if desired. I use my hands to mound them and flatten them a bit. Bake for 20-30 minutes depending on how large you make your zucchini bites. Bake until the edges are golden brown.
