They’re back! Zucchini tots have become a staple in my kitchen. They’re so easy and so healthy that I just can’t stop making them. I thought I’d share my latest experiment, since these were the best yet.
Zucchini Tots, Again
1 cup grated zucchini
1/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
1 small onion, minced
1 large egg
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat your oven to 400° and grease a mini muffin tin. Combine all your ingredients in a large bowl, making sure to mix very thoroughly. Fill each section of the mini muffin tin to the top, pressing down with a spoon. Bake 16 minutes, then remove by running a rubber spatula around the edge of each tot.
* After using both a regular muffin tin and a mini muffin tin, I’ve found that it really does work better to use the mini muffin tin. If you don’t have one, you can still use a regular muffin tin. Just fill the sections about 1/3 of the way and keep a close eye to make sure they don’t burn.
* The major changes I made were adding more onion, more Italian seasoning, and more black pepper, and using mozzarella cheese instead of cheddar. Now I want to make these even more often, because this version was even better than the last one.
* Have you made any changes to the zucchini tots recipe? If so, let me know what they were and how it worked out. I’m thinking of trying to make other vegetable tot recipes. We’ll see where my CSA takes me…

I started following the Blogilates 90 day challenge just over 3 weeks ago. I have lost 16 pounds and 4 inches on my waist.
I am following the meal plan provided with the challenge. I’m doing clean eating (nothing processed) but I HAVE to have my coffee/splenda/splash of half & half in the morning. Other than the coffee, I am following it pretty closely. I’ve been switching up my proteins in the meals so as not to get bored.
I am doing an hour of cardio 6 days a week and just introduced strength training this week.
So far, I can’t believe my results! I am SO motivated and this actually feels like a lifestyle I can maintain. Can’t wait to FINALLY be healthy!!!
