Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Zucchini Bites

I wish I could take full credit for this incredible edible.......but I can't. I got this in a few different email/recipe lists I follow. The first few I deleted.....and then I was chatting with a fellow WWer and decided these just might be worth making. And they are!!! Even Abe liked them! He said "It has a good flavor to it" which is a great review! Thinking these would make a great hors d' oeuvres as well as a side dish.

ZUCCHINI BITES
Makes 12 Bites
4 Bites = 1 Serving = 2 PointsPlus™


1 cup zucchini, grated
1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
1/4 cup onion, diced
1/4 cup fat-free cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
salt & pepper to taste
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400ยบ. Spray mini muffin pan. Set aside.

Grate zucchini into a clean dish towel. Wring all the excess moisture out of the zucchini.


In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix well.


Fill 12 muffin sections to the top & then push down on the filling with the back of a spoon so it's nice & compacted......that way they won't fall apart when done.










Bake 16 – 18 minutes. Use a plastic knife or spatula around the edges of each bite to remove.


Enjoy......we did.....






with tilapia and fresh steamed asparagus. YUMMMMMM



Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Later!
Loving Life(time)!
