Zucchini Cheddar Bites

 By: The Food Hunter

A delicious, easy-to-make snack or appetizer featuring one of my favorite vegetables: zucchini. These small bites can be eaten alone; but I prefer them served with a simple sour cream and basil dip.

Zucchini Cheddar Bites

(makes about 30 small bites)

1 pound of zucchini, grated
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 ounces Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated
1/2 cup bread crumb
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
1 egg
1 small shallot, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon dijon mustard

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment or silpat.

Evenly salt the grated zucchini in a colander and allow to drain for 10 minutes. Squeeze out as much of the remaining liquid as possible from the zucchini.

Combine the zucchini and remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Scoop a tablespoon of the zucchini mixture on the baking sheet. Gently press down on the tops of the zucchini bites to slightly flatten them.

Bake for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through until browned on both sides.

Sour Cream & Basil Dip 

1/4 cup of sour cream
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
garlic minced
crushed red pepper

Mix together and serve
