  • 2 cups zucchini, grated
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup marinara / spaghetti sauce or other sauce for dipping.


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a mini muffin tin.
  • Season the zucchini with a pinch of salt and place in the middle of a piece of cheesecloth or a thin kitchen towel. Pat dry to absorb all liquid, wring it out and transfer to a large bowl.
  • To the shredded zucchini, add the egg, onion, garlic, cheese, panko breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper. Stir till evenly combined.
  • Scoop the mixture into the mini muffin tin, filling each well to the top. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until golden. Allow the zucchini bites to cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Serve with marinara or your favorite dipping sauce.


Yield 24 mini bites
