Zucchini Tots

Zucchini Tots
The original name for these was Zucchini Bites, which was okay. But when these were baking, they smelled just like tater tots. I changed up the recipe a little (by using seasoned bread crumbs,parm. cheese, & I drained the zucchini) so I decided to change the name too and called them "Zucchini Tots instead.And "tots" does mean small and these are small (baked in a mini muffin pan) so the name fits. Zucchini Bites yields: 12 mini muffins 1 cups zucchini, grated 1 egg (1 large egg equals 3-4 tbsp when whisked together) 1/4 yellow onion, diced 1/4 cup cheese (cheddar or Parmesan work the best) 1/4 cup bread crumbs - I used Italian style Salt and Pepper 1.
