Zucchini Bites - Secret Recipe Club

My assigned blog for this month was Little Bit of Everything. This blog has such a large selection of wonderful recipes to choose from! It was really hard to decide, but lately I've been making recipes based on what people have given me from their garden, or what I've picked at the farm, so that helps narrow it down a bit.

I also had some fresh Ontario peaches and was also considering Julie's recipe for Peach Caprese Salad and Peach Muffins, but then decided on Zucchini Bites instead. My cousin gave me some really big zucchinis from her garden and I wanted to do something different with them. This recipe is very simple and everyone loved it! Next time I'm going to add more eggs and make them for breakfast on the go.

Julie also has a list of 50 recipes that she wants to try on her blog, and I thought that was a neat idea. Maybe I need to come up with a list of my own and get to work on it!

Zucchini Bites
Adapted from Little Bit of Everything
Makes 6 - 8 servings

1 1/2 cups grated and squeezed zucchini
1 large egg
1/3 cup grated cheese (Cheddar or Swiss would be good)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
cooking spray

Preheat your oven to 400F and spray 6 or 8 reguar size muffin cups with cooking spray.

Grate your zucchini and squeeze out the excess liquid, then place the squeezed zucchini in a large bowl. Add the other ingredients and mix well.

Divide the mixture among the muffin cups and bake for about 23 minutes or until they turn golden and the middles are set.

Cool slightly before serving.


  1. They look great! I'm sure both my kids would love them. Great SRC choice!

  2. I made these before and they are such a fun twist on tater tots and a great way to prepare zucchini

  3. Hi! Nice to meet you! We love these zucchini bites. They're a fun summer side. Oh those 50 recipes, I am not doing a very good job of getting those done. I need to do that! :)

  4. These look so good - and really easy to make. This is definitely the time of year I use zucchini in so many things, so this is perfect timing!

  5. I love minis and when I looked at all the links for SRC, I immediately spotted these cuties. A great pick.

  6. Oooh - I so want to make these, and I happen to have some zucchini on hand! Great choice!

  7. I'll have to bookmark these! They look great! Thanks for your comment. I was in the car at a stoplight reading your comment, had to put my phone down when the light changed. When I picked it up again, your comment was accidentally rejected! My apologies! That will teach me not to ready mail in the car!

  8. What a fun twist on tater tots! Nice presentation too. :)
