Here we go again.....I know you loved the last zucchini and bacon post, so I figured while the zucchini is still fresh out of the garden….
My son and I love, Love, LOVE zucchini. Fried Zucchini is one of our favorites but I think we may have found a new rival. These Bacon Zucchini Bites, or tots or quiches. Call them whatever you want, they’re delicious!
And there are so many possibilities to change them up with whatever you have on hand. Cheddar cheese, Swiss Cheese, Mozzarella, Italian Blend. I can personally already vouch for the cheddar, Swiss and Italian blend. All yummy.
I could also see adding some chopped jalapeno peppers for those who like it hot or sun dried tomatoes, or roasted peppers…
2 cup grated Zucchini
6 slices cooked bacon, chopped (or MORE to taste)
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 grated cheese (whatever you have)
1/4 chopped onions or scallions
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon chopped Parsley (optional)
Squeeze the water out of your grated Zucchini using a clean dish towel. I was amazed how much water was in 2 cups of Zucchini.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, Mix with a fork till all combined. Place spoonfuls of your mixture into greased mini muffin tins.
Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15-18 minutes, until the top is a beautiful golden brown.
You can also freeze these. I used plastic wrap in my muffin tins then filled with the mixture and froze for 2 hours. Pop them out and place in a freezer bag. When ready to bake, increase baking time by 10 minutes.
