Hi all. I saw a recipe for zuchinni bites the other day and didn't write it down and now can't find it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I believe it had onion and some cheese and baked in a mini muffin tin. Thanks in advance!

These are so good. I make them in a mini-muffin tin. I've learned that spraying the tin with pam is vastly superior to oiling the tin with olive oil. They pop right out with the pam and stick badly with the olive oil. Just FYI
