More About This Recipe
  • Swap out those same-old tater tots for a simple new zucchini-fied twist! Absolutely awesome for game day apps, brunches and casual cocktail parties. Quick! Answer this: French Fries or Tater Tots? Tater tots? Me too! We are totally tot buddies. So how about we one-up our soulmate status and take ourselves to zutot heaven, homies? I’m sorry I just said zutot. And homies. Words just happen when I get this excited. Because today marks the day when I discovered how to make 4-ingredient, homemade tots FROM ZUCCHINI. And these golden little wonders are basically the greatest thing since grated potatoes. Want to make some? Grab a skillet. We’re about to blow your gourd. Actually, if we’re being technical, we’re about to fry your squash. But this is not a time to mince words. It is only a time to grate zucchini. Here’s your lineup. Zucchini, zucchini, salt, egg, Bisquick™. If you’re eating paleo or gluten free, you can swap in mashed or instant potatoes for the Bisquick™. The baking mix gives these little tots a light, fritter-like bite. So, if you’re feeling like a purist, mix in mashed potatoes instead (same amount as the Bisquick™). Totally works. I decided to cookie scoop my tots. A quick scoop of the batter popped into frying oil makes for one-bite wonders. No messy hands, and no time-consuming tot shaping. If you’re a tot-shape purist you’ll definitely want to go with the mashed potato version, taking the time to ever-so-gently shape your tots into perfect little cylinders. These yummy little puppies are amazing when served with ranch dressing. Or try dipping them in hummus, sour cream or sriracha. All’s fair in love and tots.
