In summer we always have soo many Zucchinis so we are always looking for things to do with them. These Zucchini bacon bites are great to have in the fridge as a healthy snack instead of grabbing a cookie. And a great way to get veggies into the kids
Ingredients
  • 4 medium-sized zucchini or 3 large
  • Salt
  • ¾ cup almond meal (make sure to use meal not flour for the consistency)
  • ¾ cup tasty cheese, shredded
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 rashers of bacon chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
Instructions
  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. The salt will draw out the moisture.
  4. While the zucchini is sitting fry the chopped bacon until cooked but not crisp and set aside
  5. Using a clean dish towl bundle up the greated zucchini and squeeze the moiture out. Ensure to squeeze well as too much moisture will prevetn the bites holding their shape
  6. Put the zucchini back into the bowl and add the almond meal, grated cheese, eggs, bacon, garlic powder, and pepper. Mix together until well-blended.
  7. Take a tablespoon of mixture and roll it into a cylindrical shape; repeat for rest of mixture (should make about 16).
  8. Place on a greased baking sheet and place in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until the bites are golden.
  9. Serve warm or cold and enjoy!
Notes
These are great at parties as finger food with a dipping sauce
These also freeze well so you can make well in advance when you have a glut of zucchinis in the garden
