Total Time 18 minutes
- 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.
