Is your garden being overrun with zucchini? I know mine is! This is my first year in the community garden and for some reason I thought it would be a great idea to have 14 zucchini plants (to my credit I was originally going to have 7 but then someone gave me 7 more. Can't let a good plant go homeless!). But let's talk about my over zealous nature and inability to tell when too much is too much later.
Right now, we have very important things to discuss, like : What in the world to do with all that zucchini? And how to get your kids to eat it (and like it)?
I have one word for you: Zots.
AKA Zucchini Tots.
There is a very popular post floating around on Pinterest right now from Curious Country Cook which I used as my starting point and this is where I landed.
So grab a zucchini and come with me and I will teach you the ways of the zot making ninjas.
1 large or 2 small zucchini (about 2 cups grated)
1/3 white or yellow onion (about 1/2 cup diced)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup grated mozzarella (could sub in cheddar)
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
Salt and Pepper (or other herbs) to taste
1) Shred your zucchini
4) Set up
Serve warm with ketchup or ranch dip and watch your kids and hubby gobble up the zucchini filled goodness.
