Zucchini Bites

If you're like me and find yourself with a crisper drawer full of zucchini, give these a try!  I've made these twice since pinning the recipe a few weeks ago.  They are delicious and easy to make.  Be sure to squeeze the water out of the zucchini or they will be soggy.  You want them to crisp up, like a potato cake!

Zucchini Bites
Recipe adapted: The Curious Country Cook
Yields: 12 mini muffins

1 cups zucchini, grated
1 egg
1/4 yellow onion, diced
1/4 cup cheese - I used a combination of shredded Mozilla, asiago and parmesean
1/4 cup bread crumbs - I used Italian style Panko
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.
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.

  1. I've made an Ellie Kreiger recipe that's very similar to this one. Zucchini bites are delicious!

  2. They sound great! Seems zukes love to be squeezed:@)
    PS-I did add a response to your L-N-L comment you might find helpful.

  3. I do have a drawer full of zucchini and am needing some more ideas! Made a zucchini quiche tonight :) These sound like they'd be delicious!

  4. Delicious! I'd love to have these in the fridge to munch on!

  5. Italian style Panko? I think I will use just the usual Panko if I'm cooking this dish.

    These zucchini bites remind me a lot of the coming downunder-Spring...

    Your blog is awesome and here I am being your latest follower :D

  6. Hi Julie,

  7. I have plenty of zucchinis from my garden. These bites are an excellent idea to make use of them!

  8. I have made these...and they are delicious. I used the Italian Style breadcrumbs. I have used these in my cooking classes...using the Demarle at Home flexi mini muffin tray. They pop right out! No mess...easy clean!
