keto zucchini bite

This keto side dish is a whole new take on zucchini.

Ever feel like zucchini is always left out at the dinner table because you’re not sure what to make with it? Zucchini is actually a very versatile vegetable and can be made into keto-friendly chips, zoodles, and now these light and delicious cheesy zucchini bites, with only 1 net carb each!

These yummy mounds of cheesy zucchini come from such a simple yet satisfying ketorecipe the whole family will love. It almost reminds me of a hushpuppy but without all the flour and grease from frying.

Better yet, you can make these ahead of time and warm them up for a few seconds when you are ready to eat.

Hip Recipe Tips:

    • In this zucchini bite recipe, I used sharp cheddar for a rich flavor, but you can use your favorite cheese to switch it up to your tastes!
    • If you do not have cheesecloth on hand, use paper towels instead to ring out the excess liquids from the zucchini.
    • Make the bites extra hearty by adding in a 1/4 cup of cooked, chopped bacon or crumbled Italian sausage. It’s a great idea for a breakfast zucchini bite!
