  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12 muffin miniature muffin pan.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion and bacon. Cook until onion is translucent and bacon is browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the carrot and zucchini; cook until they begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Transfer mixture to a bowl to cool.
  3. Beat the eggs, cream, and Parmesan cheese together in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Stir egg mixture into cooled zucchini mixture; stir in flour. Spoon the batter evenly into the prepared muffin cups.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes.

I didn't have self-rising flour but you can make your own. For ONE cup of all-purpose flour, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

My family and I just didn't like them. They weren't terrible, just not to our liking. They might be good for an early brunch because they tasted really eggy to me. Sorry this is the first low re...

Diana trusted me, and I trusted the AR peeps. We made these to christen the new mini-muffin pan we bought. This pan has 24 holes, so we made a batch of 24 and then a batch of 6. We thought they ...

This is a good basic recipe. I omitted the oil and just sauteed the onions carrots in the bacon drippings. It seemed a little bland when I tasted the batter, so I added some garlic powder and ...

Very tasty, both hot and cold. I got 24 mini-muffin-sized bites instead of 12. I used 1-1/2 small zucchinis instead of 1 large, and replaced some of the parmesan (about 1/4 cup) with shredded mo...

I was skeptical because of the amount of onion/veggies in here, but "wow" is all I can say! These were delicious (thanks bacon, haha). I'm not sure what size mini pan the recipe creator used, bu...

These are delicious. They are a great snack by themselves, but would also be great with soup or chili. I made half a batch, filled the muffin cups full, and got 9 muffins. Thanks for a tasty rec...

Yummy! Versatile recipe, add whatever grated/chopped up veggies &/or cheeses that you want to the mix. You don't have to use a muffin tray; they bake up just as nicely if you drop rounded spoonf...
