  • 2 1/4 cup shredded zucchini
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • additional bread crumbs to roll tots in


  • Peel and shred zucchini using a grater.  Since zucchini is high in water, place in colander and press on it, to remove the excess liquid.  Place shredded zucchini in bowl.
  • Add beaten eggs, salt, flour, bread crumbs, mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese.  Mix completely with a spoon.
  • Add olive oil to frying pan and heat over medium high heat.  Shape zucchini into nugget/tot shape and roll around in additional bread crumbs to cover.  Add tots to frying pan and cook until brown, usually 3-4 minutes on each side. 
  • Serve immediately as is, or my family loves them with a little bit of tomato sauce.    You can also make a double batch and freeze them.
