Before we were able to find a couple of our own zucchini my uncle gave us some of his. Now his garden is one that I will admit to coveting... :) It's just down right amazing.
The ones he gave me were bigger than my calf and I had no idea what I was going to do with them. I made these amazing oatmeal bars (will post later). Out of one zucchini I got 4 batches of bars and 2 quart bags of grated zucchini. yes they really were that big.
I see all these awesome recipes on facebook lately and I want to try them but when it's time I can't find them again. So I had to wing this one with the help of my best friend who I was stalking while she was traveling for a weekend away :)
I basically just cut it in half, scooped out the seeds and some of the pulp.
I rubbed some olive oil and season salt on the outside of the zucchini and then stuffed them with the filling. I took a piece of foil and sprayed it before I covered the filling side of the zucchini.
Preheated grill and grilled filling side down for 10-12 minutes, once it started to get soft I flipped them over and removed the foil.
I then spread some seasoned bread crumbs and Colby-jack cheese over the filling while it continued to cook. They sure looked pretty!
I wasn't totally impressed with them - I thought they were bland - needed something. But they were healthy so I will be attempting them again.
What are your suggestions for seasoning or spicing them up a bit?
