Chickpea "Tots"

Original Recipe HERE
My kids thought these were great: many were consumed at dinner, and they were happy to hear there was leftover dough to make some more the following day.  Naturally, they were dipped in ketchup.  I wasn't blown away by them, but they were a somewhat nutritious side dish (or snack) that they had fun helping with, so I will make them again and see if it was a fluke or if this should be a reliable option.
2 cans (15 oz each) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 large egg
1 garlic clove
1 cup Panko
1/3 cup onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup shredded cheddar

(1) Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
(2) Add all ingredients to a food processor.  Process until it's a smooth and uniform dough; remove from processor.
(3) Take a small handful of dough at a time and roll it into a "snake" about 3/4" in diameter.  Cut into 1" pieces.  Flatten or round edges if desired.
(4) Grease a baking sheet or use a silpat or parchment.  Bake tots for 10 minutes on one side.  Turn them over; bake for an additional 5 minutes (or until golden and crispy).
Kid Participation: Shape tots into snakes.
