Stuffing Bites (Low Carb)

About a week ago, I made these Stuffing Bites... and Todd ate them... and Todd liked them! I was super surprised because the star ingredient is zucchini! The original name was Zucchini Bites but I renamed them after tasting them because they taste just like stuffing. They were really easy to make; the only "annoying" part being draining out the zucchini. Any tips on this would be nice!


* Update 6/5/13: Almond flour can be substituted for the low carb bread crumbs.
