Recipe Notes

Macros (per serving): Calories: 504 kcal – Fat: 41.14 g – Net carbs: 5.21 g (total carbs: 9.61 g, dietary fiber: 4.4 g) – Protein: 24.69 g

Instead of ghee, you can use butter or another type of cooking oil, according to your preferences. You can also substitute the cheddar for another similar hard cheese, and use slightly less or slightly more, depending on how you prefer your zucchini bites. You can also add salsa when frying the beef (make sure to take it into account when counting your macros).

It’s important not to bake the bites for too long, as you want to keep the zucchini’s naturally crunchy texture.
