Zucchini Tots

This is a recipe that I saw on a website (and I apologize, but I didn't copy the address).  It was suggested that this is a great substitute for tater tots.  While, yes, they are crispy and shredded like tater tots, they do not taste like tater tots.  However, they are quite tasty.

1 cup zucchini-grated
1 egg
1/4 cup yellow onion
1/4 cup cheese (cheddar or Parmesan work best)
1/4 cup bread crumbs (I used Italian style)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.  Grate zucchini and then place in a dish towel to squeeze out the excess liquid.  In a bowl, combine the egg, onion, cheese, bread crumbs, zucchini, and salt and pepper to taste.  Using a spoon or scoop, fill the muffin cups to the top.  Bake for 15-18 minutes.
