Zucchini Tots – a way healthier alternative to tater tots, and much tastier too .I have being using the appe pan for quite some time now.Its amazing how i can make most of the fried stuff in this magic pan with few drops of oil.Loved the end result !! Its a fun recipe to get your kids to eat their veggies with this delicious dish. These are perfectly crunchy and delightful!
