Zucchini Tots

This looks like a fairly difficult recipe, but trust me it’s not. I was pleasantly surprised with how easy this is to make and how delicious it is too. My friend Marnie found this recipe on Skinny Taste and had my try them. I was inspired to make these tots for my friends and they were a hit!

 Did I mention that my friends and I had breakfast for dinner on Monday night?

It was pretty awesome.

Zucchini Tots 


  • 1 cup zucchini, grated
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 medium onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cooking spray


Preheat oven to 400°.  Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.

Grate the zucchini into a clean dish towel (you can also use a food processor).  Wring all of the excess water out of the zucchini. In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients and season with salt and pepper to taste. I made a mistake by adding too much seasoning to the mixture. Remember, you can always add more seasoning but you can’t take it out!

Fill each muffin section to the top, pushing down on the filling with your spoon so it’s nice and compacted so they don’t fall apart when you take them out of the tin.

Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until the tops are golden.

Use a plastic knife or rubber spatula around the edges of each tot to remove them from the muffin tin.



  1. Yum! These look great! Have you ever tried cauliflower tots? They’re just as good!
