Anyone want zucchini? We are eating zucchini daily but I cannot keep up. I pick at least a half a dozen every single day.
Today I cleaned out the fridge and gave a dishpan full of zukes to the children to make boats. I hate to waste food but unless a disaster strikes, I'll have another dishpan full by the end of the week. We have had abundant rain and no bug problems at all this year.
Some of our favorite ways to enjoy zucchini squash is Calico Squash and Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread. Remember the ugly pumpkin cookies last fall? My sister said she substituted the pumpkin for zucchini. I tried it and found a new favorite.
But the latest favorite zucchini recipe is these cheesy zucchini bites. So easy to make. And the first pan of these were eaten in minutes.
Give them a try - and if you need zucchini - you know where to come.
Cheesy Zucchini Bites
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
3 cups shredded zucchini
2 eggs, slightly beaten
In bowl mix onion, cheese, bread crumbs, and seasonings. Squeeze as much liquid from zucchini as possible. Toss in bowl with onion/cheese mixture. Toss eggs with remaining ingredients. Spoon onto baking sheet, pressing into flattened balls. Bake at 400 degrees for about 12-15 minutes or until slightly browned. Serve immediately.
