Baked Zucchini Potato Tots
Kids friendly Tater Tots took a healthy trip and became this delicious Zucchini Potato tots. This delicious appetizer is baked and is loaded with healthy grated zucchini along with potato and spices.
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 large Zucchini grated
- 2 small Potato
- ½ cup Shredded cheese I used Mexican blend cheese
- 2 tablespoon Bread crumbs
- 2 tablespoon All purpose flour if needed
- 1 ½ teaspoon Garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon Chili powder optional
- to taste Salt
- to taste Pepper
- to grease Olive oil
Grate the zucchini and place it in a thick kitchen towel.
Wring out the towel with the zucchini inside to remove as much as moisture from the zucchini. You just have to squeeze it really hard as zucchini has quite a bit of liquid. Place the squeezed zucchini in a wide bowl.
Boil the potatoes until they are fork tender and grate it in the same bowl as the zucchini.
Add the seasonings, bread crumbs and the cheese and mix well to combine. The dough should be stiff when combined. If not, add all purpose flour, one tablespoon at a time to make stiff dough.
Form tight, small cylinders and place it in a well greased baking sheet.
Brush the shaped tots with olive oil and bake them in a preheated 425 F oven for about 25 minutes. At about half way through the baking process, take the tots out and flip them over so that the other side cooks.
Serve the Zucchini Potato Tots warm with ketchup!
