Cheesy baked zucchini tots made with grated zucchini, fresh herbs, cheddar, parmesan and breadcrumbs. Both kids and adults will love these! Can easily be made gluten free.
Preheat oven to 400F/200C degrees.
Add a fine-mesh sieve over a mixing bowl. Add zucchini and sprinkle with sea salt. Let sit for 10 minutes. Then, using your hands, squeeze to release all the zucchini’s moisture.
Add zucchini to a mixing bowl. Add onion, garlic, egg, herbs, cheddar, parmesan, salt and pepper. Stir mixture until well-combined. Then, add breadcrumbs until well-incorporated.
Pack mixture into a tablespoon measuring spoon, then using your wet hands form little rectangle-shaped tots. Add tots to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You will get about 15 tots.
Bake for 15 minutes, then flip tots and lightly press down. Bake another 10 minutes or until golden brown on both sides. Set aside to cool.
Serve with marinara sauce or ketchup (if you're feeling extra!) for dipping.
Place the cooked and cooled zucchini tots in an airtight container and freeze them for up to one month.
To eat, place frozen tots on a baking sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes at 400C/200C until heated through.
