Change up your tater tots for a simple new zucchini twist! These are awesome for game day appetizers, brunches and casual cocktail parties.

For the Tots:

 INGREDIENTS

3  cups grated zucchini (tightly packed)

1  egg

1 1/2  cups instant mashed potatoes
1  teaspoon salt and pepper
1  cup coconut oil (for pan frying)

For dipping:

1/2  cup ranch dressing

DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, stir together grated zucchini, egg, instant mashed potatoes, salt and pepper. Mix until a soft dough forms.
  • Heat coconut oil and olive oil over medium heat in a small pot or deep-sided skillet. Using a mini cookie scoop, drop zucchini mixture into the hot coconut oil, frying until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Flip with metal tongs, if needed, to ensure even cooking.
  • Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate. Serve warm with ranch dressing for dipping.
