Tater Tot "Zucchini" bites!

Thanks to my new obsession Pinterest I came across a really great recipe for zucchini bites. I didn't like most of the ingredients that particular person used so I have messed with the recipe and have come up with a simply delicious recipe I could honestly eat at every meal.

These tasty nuggets taste like tater tots. Yes the tater tots you loved as a kid and maybe loved even more as an adult...I know I loved them. You don't get to be my "previous" size without a few tater tots in your past.

I hope you love these as much as I do.
Here is what you will need:

2 cups shredded and "squeezed" zucchini
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
1/2 cup shredded cheese (whatever you like) I use sharp cheddar
1 egg
Salt and Pepper to taste

Make you sure really get the water out of the zucchini...some is not bad but sometimes mine is really drenched by the time I am done shredding it. 

Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix well. 
Spray a mini muffin tin with pam. Put a small ammt in each tin and bake at 400 until golden brown and delicious, about 10-15 min. 
Let cool slightly and remove from pan.  I typically get about 24 mini size. 

I like to eat a couple and then put the rest in a freezer bag for the rest of the week. 

This is one of my favorite recipes. If you try it I hope you love it!
