#SundaySupper #BackToSchool Tots Your Tots Will Love!

August 26, 2012

As I’ve mentioned, I’ve started making lunch for the ladies in the office and I’m a big fan of Meatless Monday.  So, when I needed something to pair with a Cream of Tomato Soup, these were the perfect match!  I threw together a batch of these ridiculously easy zucchini tots one evening to “test” the recipe to make sure they were good…and, my husband and I devoured the entire pan before they could cool. Needless to say, they are delicious.

Not only are these tots easy to prepare, they can be frozen and reheated in the toaster oven for a quick breakfast or afternoon snack. An added bonus is your family will love them and it’s an tasty way to sneak some veggies into the pickiest of eaters. Feel free to play around with the vegetable and cheese combos.  I think carrots, squash or broccoli would be great substitutions as would monterey jack, swiss or muenster.

Zucchini Tots

Ingredients:

  • 1 zucchini, grated
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ onion, diced
  • ¼ cup shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cooking spray

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°. Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Grate the zucchini over a paper towel. Pat the excess water out of the zucchini once grated. Combine all the ingredients and season with salt and pepper to taste. Fill the muffin tins with the mixture. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until the tops are golden. Use a knife to help remove the muffins from the pan and enjoy!

    I made a version of these not long ago and they were fabulous for quick lunch box ideas for my daughter. But they were so good out of the oven I am afraid I ate a large portion of them before they ever made it to her lunch box. :)

  25. I can’t wait to try these! Tater tots are one of my guilty pleasures, and this sounds like a really delicious and healthier alternative!

  32. First of all I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick
    question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are generally wasted simply just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks!


    • Well…if you look at my posts you will see they have been few and far between lately, so I’ve been struggling with getting focused myself! Although I always find time to meal plan, shop and cook, I do have trouble finding the time to sit down and just write! I like to be alone, listening to chill tunes and a glass of wine usually helps too :0) Typically I will write a post or two, review the next day and make any tweaks I see fit after “sleeping on it,” then schedule to post. Again, the main issue is just finding the time. Hope this helps!
