I love all things stuffed. Well, not all things, but zucchini? Yep, definitely love it stuffed. And stuffing things with bacon is something I will do way more often! My husband said (and I quote), “what other vegetables can you make taste like bacon?”
So, for the recipe for these wonderful little boats…just keep reading!
Bacon Stuffed Zucchini
Ingredients: *amounts may vary…this recipe made 2 full zucchini boats (or 4 halves)
Bacon Stuffed Zuchinni
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Start by slicing the zucchini in half lengthwise. Hollow out the zucchini using either a melon baller or a spoon. Set the zucchini boats (the hollow shells) in a baking dish to the side.
Take the insides of the zucchini and give them a chop, along with the turkey bacon, onion, and garlic.
In a skillet, saute the zucchini, turkey bacon, onion, and garlic for 5-7 minutes (or until bacon in done).
In a bowl, stir together the bacon mixture, parmesan cheese, and seasonings. Scoop onto the zucchini boats.
Place stuffed zucchini in oven for 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven, top with mozzarella cheese and return to oven for 2 minutes.
I think next time, I will serve these will a little side of spicy marinara sauce. What would you serve with your bacon stuffed zucchini???
