Ingredients
  • 1 c. zucchini, grated
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ of an onion, diced (I used an entire small onion because we love onions)
  • ¼ c. sharp cheddar, grated (any kind of cheese will work)
  • ¼ c. dry breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Grease a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Grate the zucchini, place in a clean dish towel, and wring as much water out as you can (it won't be much).
  3. In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Fill each muffin section to the top, pushing down on the filling with a spoon so it's compacted.
  5. Bake 15 - 18 minutes. When the top is starting to turn golden brown, they're done.
Notes
I've made these with 2 c. zucchini instead of 1, and they were really good, just softer than the ones made with 1 c.
