4-Ingredient Zucchini Tater Tots
Updated March 21, 2017
cups grated zucchini (tightly packed)
cups Original Bisquick™ mix
teaspoon salt and pepper
In a large bowl, stir together grated zucchini, egg, Bisquick™, salt and pepper. Mix until a soft dough forms.
Heat coconut oil and olive oil over medium heat in a small pot or deep-sided skillet. Using a mini cookie scoop, drop zucchini mixture into the hot oil, frying until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Flip with metal tongs, if needed, to ensure even cooking.
Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate. Serve warm with ranch dressing for dipping.
- Paleo and gluten free eaters can swap in 1 1/2 cups mashed potatoes for the Bisquick™.
