Zucchini Tater Tots

Sometimes you see a video on with How to make... and it looks interesting, you have to try it, and then the result is yummy :D

4 medium-sized zucchini, salt (to pull moisture from the zucchini), ¾ cup bread crumbs, ¾ cup cheddar cheese, shredded, 2 eggs, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 400°F/200˚C. Grate the zucchini into a bowl and salt generously. Allow zucchini to sit for 20 minutes as the salt draws out moisture. Pour zucchini onto a clean dish towel and wring it out over the sink or into a separate bowl. Pour the zucchini back into your bowl and add bread crumbs, cheddar cheese, eggs, garlic powder, and pepper. Mix together until well-blended. Take a tablespoon of mixture and roll it into a tot; repeat for rest of mixture. Place on a greased baking sheet and place in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until tots are crunchy.
