Cheesy Zucchini Egg Bites

Our dairy delivery just started a local Farmer to Table Veggie Box. It is wonderful, a veritable treasure trove of goodness. Included were 4 beautiful zucchini. And some wonderful sweet onions. Our fridge is full so I made this for some space!What we’ll do: turn the oven on to 350⁰F; grate the zucchini, onion and cheese, mix in the dry ingredients then blend the eggs and olive oil, fold egg into zucchini onion mix and scoop into muffin pan. Makes 12 large bites.These are about 130 calories each, 4g net carbs, 8g protein and 8g fat each.If you would like to add more cheddar cheese, you can load some up on top. More carbs and calories then! Cooked, diced bacon could be added to as well as finely chopped fresh red chillies. A bit of lemon zest for extra zing or fresh herbs chopped in. Experiment with your favourite savoury flavours or other cheese – crumbled feta and diced olives? It’s so much fun!
Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 cup grated strong cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 1 tblspn dried dill
  • 1 tblspn garlic powder
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt and pepper
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 tblspn olive oil

Method

  1. Peel the onion and top and tail the zucchini
  2. Grate the onion first
  3. Then grate the zucchini, it will clean the grater and absorb the onion flavour
  4. Grate the cheese
  5. Add these all to a large bowl, plus the flour, parmesan and seasonings
  6. Toss this mix together lightly until mingled
  7. Beat the eggs and oil together, fold into the zucchini and onion mix
  8. When mixed scoop into your muffin pan
  9. Pop into the oven for 35 – 40 minutes until golden and set
  10. Serve with a side salad and delicious with hot sauce

Cheesy, spicy light goodness.
