Try something healthier for dinner tonight with cheesy and crunchy Baked Zucchini Nuggets! Whether you're trying to make kids eat their veggies or trying to incorporate more veggies into your own diet, these are sure to please.

 1 ½ cups zucchini (shredded and drained)
 1 cup bread crumbs
 ½ tbsp italian seasoning
 ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
 1 egg

Preheat oven to 400°F.


Shred your zucchini and drain thoroughly. I use a cheesecloth and squeeze out all the excess moisture I can. Your zucchini doesn't have to be bone-dry but the drier the better.


Add this zucchini to a large bowl and combine with the shredded mozzarella, breadcrumbs, and egg.


Mix until homogeneous.


Take 1 tbsp of zucchini batter and form into nugget shapes. Place the nuggets on a parchment paper lined sheet tray. Continue until all zucchini is used.


Bake for 20-25, flipping halfway. Serve with your dipping sauce of choice.
