Stuffed Zucchini Strips

Stuffed Zucchini Strips

I saw this recipe over at The Single Nester
I added meat to my version:

*Added Note: there are many recipes on Pinterest!

6 zucchini, sliced in half length wise, 
and with insides scooped out:
Add to the zucchini "in-erds"
1/2 lb cooked *ground beef
*ground sausage would have also been great
and I'll try this meat next time. 
Spicy sausage will add a nice flavor.

1 Red Bell Pepper chopped
1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 c. crushed seasoned croutons
Shredded Mozzarella 
*Olive Oil
*I forgot to oil the pan but they did not stick
*Next time I will lightly coat the
zucchini with olive oil before baking.

I had so much stuffing left over that 
I put it in a glass pie pan, but this would have been great wrapped up in a flour tortilla shell, had I had them on hand.

Happy Monday, Y'all!

    1. Hi! she has a lovely site that I enjoy visiting ;) Yes, he is, even when we can't see it.

  2. Yummy.
    I will have to try these for sure.
    Love the bouquet from your daughter.
    So sweet.

    1. Morning:) Another site with a similar recipe says to let the "boats" bake for about 7 minutes before stuffing, and return them to the oven. Thanks for visiting!

  3. Your zucchini recipe sounds good, JoAnn! And that cupcake bouquet is just the cutest thing ever! What a great idea and I bet it was yummy too. I just love the icing on those things! :)

    Have a great day!

    1. Hey Tammy! yes, it was all so good - that icing is slightly addicting ;)

  4. Yum. I love zucchini. This recipe reminds me of the zucchini boats I've made before. I will have to try your recipe, though. It looks great! I'd love for you to share this at my party.

    Have a fabulous afternoon.


    1. Hi Julie, thanks for the invite ;) there are so many terrific zuk recipes out there. I could have eaten the stuffing mixture right out of the bowl.

  5. Thank you so much for sharing this great recipe on Marvelous Mondays! I hope to see you at next week's party. :)
