Whip up these delicious zucchini bites in a jiffy, all in one bowl and all at one time. The baking mix magically makes a crust, even though it is beaten in with everything else. Great for party appetizers or cut them into larger squares to serve as a side dish. May be served warm or at room temperature.
It’s important that you remove the excess moisture from the grated zucchini before mixing the batter. The easiest way to do this is to place the grated zucchini in a clean kitchen towel and twist gently to release the moisture. In a pinch, several layers of paper towels will also work. You may also put the grated zucchini in a fine sieve and gently press down to drain.
