    ¾ cup cheddar cheese, shredded

    1 teaspoon pepper


    1. Preheat oven to 400°F/200˚C.

    2. Grate the zucchini into a bowl and salt generously.

    3. Allow zucchini to sit for 20 minutes as the salt draws out moisture.

    4. Pour zucchini onto a clean dish towel and wring it out over the sink or into a separate bowl.

    5. Pour the zucchini back into your bowl and add bread crumbs, cheddar cheese, eggs, garlic powder, and pepper. Mix together until well-blended.

    6. Take a tablespoon of mixture and roll it into a tot; repeat for rest of mixture.

    7. Place on a greased baking sheet and place in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until tots are crunchy.

    8. Serve warm and enjoy!
