Zucchini Boats

Are you craving a baked potato, but haven’t eaten a vegetable in two days? I’ve got your solution: zucchini boats, baked potato style!    The perfect dish for the veggie haters, these zucchini boats are filled with delicious and healthy ingredients (and bacon… and cheese…). I found the recipe here with a fabulous step by step with pictures, so I’ll leave out the specifics. Here are my quickie instructions:


  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 large sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 4 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped,
  • 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp. curry
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. butter


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Sauté the onion with the butter in a pan. Add all spices.
  3. After the onion is translucent add the bacon and cook for a minute or two more.
  4. Cut the zucchini in half, lengthwise. Spoon or scoop out the “meat” of the zucchini. Put the “meat” in a bowl.
  5. Add the onion, bacon, tomato, and sour cream to the bowl and mix thoroughly.
  6. Pile the mixture on the zucchini. Sprinkle with cheese.
  7. Bake the zucchini for about 30 minutes or the zucchini is soft and well-cooked.

(We paired our zucchini boats with gnocchi, because we were THAT hungry. And we like words with two C’s.)
