Seasoned Zucchini Bites
This seasoned zucchini bites recipe is DEFINITELY one of my favorites! I made it for a church gathering once and people devoured it! I have been trying to work on eating a little healthier…which is hard when you love food like I do…but I have been trying to get more “real food” and less processed and junk food in our diet. That is not to say that I don’t eat junk food…believe me I do! Anyway, we have an abundance of zucchini from our garden right now. I have seen people do various things with zucchini on Pinterest, but I have experimented a fair bit to figure out a recipe that is both delicious and reasonably healthy. Now when I say it is healthy, that is a relative term. If you compare it to celery, it’s not-so-much-healthy…but imagine these in place of cheese bread sticks with a pizza. It’s sounding pretty healthy now, isn’t it? 😉
How to Make Seasoned Zucchini Bites
Seasoned Zucchini Bites Ingredients
- 1-2 medium-sized zucchini
- 2 c shredded mozzarella or cheddar cheese
- 1 c grated parmesan cheese (the real stuff…not that stuff you sprinkle on spaghetti!)
- 1/2 Tbsp dried thyme
- 1/2 Tbsp dried oregano
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/8 tsp black pepper
- Garlic salt to taste (I wait and use a few pinches of it to sprinkle on after the zucchini bites are fully cooked)
Seasoned Zucchini Bites Directions
Preheat oven at 350. Cut the zucchini crosswise into 1/4-1/2 inch thick circles. Lay the zucchini circles out so that they are almost touching on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a medium-sized bowl combine the fresh parmesan cheese, thyme, oregano, salt, and black pepper, then stir. Sprinkle approximately one teaspoon of the parmesan mixture onto each zucchini circle. Next, top with just enough mozzarella (or cheddar) cheese to mostly cover the zucchini.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, until the mozzarella is starting to get crispy and golden brown. Remove zucchini bites from the oven. Sprinkle them lightly with garlic salt.
Enjoy the heaven in your mouth!
