Author Notes: This is the perfect summer appetizer. It is a snap to make, can be prepared in advanced and everyone loves them. Plus, with this being zucchini season the ingredients are available everywhere you look! My mother-in-law gave me this recipe along with the Zucchini-Lemon Cookies recipes. I can't way which one I like more, they are both delicious but totally different.KelseyTheNaptimeChef

I need to send these to my dad in Texas. Can I freeze them?

Even though it's not summer, I want to try these soon! How do you think they'd turn out with pankonin pla e of regular breadcrumbs?

Panko should work. Panko isn't as fine so you may want to use a rounded 1/2 cup.

I loved these muffins, so easy and good. I am wondering if they can be frozen after baked, as I would like to make them again for a baby shower but need to make about a week in advance.

This was soooo good. My kids loved it and I was thrilled to find one more use for the zucchini that keeps popping up in my CSA box. I made it exactly as described. I think the key is to use the sharpest cheddar you can find and definitely include the parsley. Thanks a lot for sharing the recipe; it will become a staple.

I am SO glad you liked these and I LOVE your photo. I just made a fresh batch today and agree with your assessment of using extra sharp cheddar and lots of parsley. Enjoy your zucchini!

Merrill and I are wondering if there's supposed to be a little flour in the recipe, or do the breadcrumbs and egg work as the binding?

The breadcrumbs usually work for binding for me. But if you think they need a little flour feel free to add some!
