Well these kid-friendly zucchini tots are the perfect solution! They make a great side for breakfast or dinner!br /br /I shared this recipe a few years ago, and we all loved them, but the only issue was I made them in a mini muffin tin, and they stuck to the pan. Here's a photo of them as mini muffins...br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-VWRKvYtfaMA/UA1QMJmkxjI/AAAAAAAAGpY/rAtFxLVk1pY/s1600/baked-zucchini-tots.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" class="pinnable" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-VWRKvYtfaMA/UA1QMJmkxjI/AAAAAAAAGpY/rAtFxLVk1pY/s1600/baked-zucchini-tots.jpg" //a/divbr /Then last year I made these a href="http://www.skinnytaste.com/2013/11/cauliflower-tots.html"cauliflower tots/a and baked them on a baking sheet and they were perfect. So last night I decided to try it out with this recipe, and the results were zucchini tot perfection – no more sticking to the pan!br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-EDhmIU2giow/U6RK2VfmRI/AAAAAAAAPKo/D6FrYHjbRIg/s1600/Improved-Zucchini-Tots.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-EDhmIU2giow/U6RK2VfmRI/AAAAAAAAPKo/D6FrYHjbRIg/s1600/Improved-Zucchini-Tots.jpg" //a/divbr /I also like how they got a little crisp on the edges – so good! My husband LOVED these, and he's pretty particular when it comes to eating zucchini. One advice is to be sure to squeeze as much water out of the shredded zucchini, I just used paper towels. Some moisture will still remain, but they will turn out just fine.br /br /I have tons of zucchini recipes here on Skinnytaste, so many I created an entire Pinterest board called a href="http://pinterest.com/skinnytaste/yummy-zucchini/"Yummy Zucchini/a devoted to it.
