  • In a large skillet cook zucchini and onion in hot oil over medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes or until just tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and stir in bulgur, tomato and cheese. Spoon mixture evenly into prepared muffin cups.

  • In a large bowl whisk together eggs, oregano, and pepper. Pour evenly over vegetable mixture in muffin cups.

  • Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until a knife inserted in center of muffins comes out clean. Let cool in pans on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Run a thin knife around the edges of the muffins to loosen. Carefully remove muffins from the pans and serve warm.
