These are irresistible and a perfect accompaniment to grilled chicken or steak. Delicious and filled with veggies, these are a healthy replacement for tater tots!
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 cups packed shredded zucchini (see NOTE below)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ¼ cup onion, finely minced
  • ¼ cup grated fresh parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup freshly grated cheddar cheese
  • ⅔ cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • 1-2 tsp sriracha sauce (or more if you like it spicy!)
  1. NOTE: Once you shred the zucchini, make sure to drain all the water out. Squeeze handfuls between thick paper towels to make sure to get all of the water out. If the zucchini is still wet, they won't cook up well.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or foil
  4. With a basting brush, spread a thin layer of olive oil on the parchment
  5. Mix zucchini with eggs and onion
  6. Add cheese and stir gently
  7. Add breadcrumbs, salt and pepper.
  8. Mix until completely combined
  9. With clean hands, form into small "tots"
  10. Set on baking sheet spaced evenly apart
  11. Bake for 18-20 minutes, turning halfway through until cooked through and golden
  12. Mix spicy ketchup ingredients together and serve with zucchini tots
