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
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)
1/2 a small sweet potato, peeled
Salt & pepper to taste
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!
