So, these zucchini tots not only taste much better than tater tots, but they are much healthier and the kids don’t even have to know. I call ‘em yummy tots. They’ll never know…

Ingredients:

  • cooking spray  zucchini
  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • 1/4 cup grated carrot
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a mini-muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • Combine zucchini and carrot in a large bowl. Squeeze out excess water using a paper towel.
  • Mix bread crumbs, feta cheese, basil, egg, salt, pepper, and oregano into zucchini-carrot mixture. Scoop mixture using a mini ice cream scoop or 2 spoons and press mixture into the prepared muffin tin using the back of a spoon.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until tops are golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes.

Enjoy!
