Zucchini & Sweet Potato Bites

February 7, 2019

I actually don't bake savoury recipes as often as I really should, but I've baked these guys three times already this week so I figured it was time to blog about it!

 

This is a really simple recipe, made in just a few very basic steps and so delicious. It is basically a zucchini slice with a couple of my own additions which I think make these little bites so flavoursome and moorish!!

 

They really are the perfect snack and never last long at my house!

 

I'd love to know if you give them a try.

 

 

Zucchini & Sweet Potato Bites

 

5 eggs

1/4 cup oil such as vegetable or canola

1 cup self raising flour

1 cup shredded tasty cheese

1/3 cup grated parmesan

1/2 large brown onion (use the entire onion if it's small)

1 zucchini

1/2 a small sweet potato, peeled

Salt & pepper to taste

 

 

Method

 

Preheat oven to 180 C

 

Finely dice the onion and grate the zucchini & sweet potato

 

Crack the eggs into a large bowl and add seasoning, oil and self raising flour. Using a whisk bring everything together until it becomes a smooth paste 

 

Add the onion, sweet potato and zucchini into the paste and stir together with a wooden spoon.

 

Add the cheeses and mix together again until everything has been covered evenly with the eggy paste and there are no unmixed clumps. I like to use a spatula to bring everything in from the sides and back down into the bowl.

 

 

I find using my ice cream scoop the easiest and cleanest way to divide the batter between the muffin tray. If you don't have a scoop simply use two tablespoons to evenly distribute the mixture.

 

Once all the mixture has been distributed bake your savoury bites for approx. 20 - 23 minutes or until they have risen and have golden puffy tops. You may need to turn the trays about 3/4 way through the baking time to ensure the tops of your bites brown evenly.

 

This recipe makes 14 muffin sized savoury bites

 

 

Once baked, cool in the tray for 5 minutes before removing from the muffin tin and cooling on a wire rack. 

 

Sweet potato can always be substituted for grated carrot or left out completely if you don't have any on hand, simply make up the weight with another zucchini!
