Toasted Zucchini Snacks

Maybe it's your turn to take snacks to the office, you're planning appies for a dinner or have been asked to contribute food to a baby shower. These Zucchini toasts are quick and easy to prepare. You can use any type of tiny bread slices you like, prepare your topping ahead and quickly put them into the oven for 10 minutes just before serving.


  • 24 slices snack rye or pumpernickel bread (2"x 2") OR French baguette 
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini (1 small zucchini)
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterrey cheese ( I like Habanero Heat or a sprinkle or chili flakes added)
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp Tabasco
  1. Combine all topping ingredients.
  2. Spread by rounded teaspoon on each slice of bread.
  3. Bake at 375 for 10 - 12 minutes, until bubbly or starting to just starting to brown.( I like to bake these on convection) 


  1. Hello, I've just discovered your post and it's such a blessing with all those lovely recipes. I'm definately going to give your cornbread recipe a go...thank you. Woo xx

  2. These look and sound like a delicious treat ... I think I would want to eat them all myself!

  3. Would you squeeze the water out of the shredded zucchini?

    1. I grated them on the larger side and there was no liquid.

  4. Those look delicious Anneliese! We love appetizers and snacks like this.

  5. I first saw these at parties the early 80s. Excited to see this recipe still around. I would like to make these for a party coming up soon. How far in advance can I make the zucchini topping? I would love to do this a day ahead then add to the bread and toast.

    1. I'm not sure if you can make it the day before as the zucchini may get soggy. I would just have the ingredients ready to go. It takes a few minutes then to roughly grate and mix the topping. You could always do a trial run earlier and see how it goes. All the best.
