Pour into a lightly greased crock pot
Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours, stirring occasionally
Cheesy Zucchini Breadsticks
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Add 1/2 tsp salt to your grated zucchini and allow to sit for 10 minutes
Remove a handful of grated zucchini and squeeze as much water out as you can. Continue to squeeze out the water out of all of the zucchini
To remove more water, place zucchini onto a clean, white towel and cover. Using a rolling pin, roll over the top of the towel, pressing down. Once the towel is wet, remove the zucchini from the towel and place into the bowl.
Combine grated zucchini, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, egg, garlic powder and parsley.
Line a baking pan with parchment paper
Spread the zucchini mixture onto the paper at least 1/2" thick.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the top is brown.
Tips
  • The more juice/water you remove from the zucchini, the crispier it will be.
