Bacon Cheddar Squash Bites. July 5, 2013

If you have ever grown zucchini or summer squash, or even know someone who has, you are likely to have it piling up around the house mid summer. As much as I like it on the grill or turned into bread, I still had to come up with some other options. This is one of those options I came up with. They are great as an appetizer or a healthier alternative to tater tots as a side dish.


Bacon Cheddar Squash Bites
Makes 24 bites

1 c grated zucchini
1 c grated summer squash
2 eggs
1/2 medium onion – diced
1/2 c grated cheddar cheese
1/2 c panko bread crumbs
5 slices crisp cooked bacon- crumbled
Salt & pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 400°
2. Coat mini muffin pan with olive oil or cooking spray
3. After grating zucchini/squash, place into dish towel & squeeze out excess liquid- This is very important!
4. After zucchini is drained, mix all ingredients in medium bowl until well combined.
5. Press mixture into mini muffin cups
6. Bake at 400° for 20mins. Let cool slightly & serve.
7. Enjoy!
