Zucchini Tots


3 cups grated zucchini
3 eggs lightly beaten
1 red onion, diced
3/4 - 1 cup cheddar cheese (or parmesan for a lighter taste)
3/4 cup bread crumbs 
Red pepper flakes to taste

1.  Heat oven to 400 and spray a mini-muffin tin non-stick spray
2.  When you grate the zucchini, spread it out on a paper towel and lightly sprinkle with salt.  LET IT SIT for about 20 minutes.  This removes all the excess moisture and keeps the tots from being soggy.  Bleh.
3.  Mix together the eggs, onion, cheese, bread crumbs, and pepper flakes.
4.  Add zucchini
5.  Spoon into muffin tin.  Bake for 15-20 minutes (until they are brown)

Use 3 cups of squash in place of zucchini.  Use yellow onion in place of red.  Add 1 teaspoon (or more- to taste) of ground sage.  Be sure to use cheddar cheese with this one.  They'll taste like mini casseroles!
