Sausage Stuffed Zucchini

Standard

One of our favorites. Its easy, cheap, and filling!

10/10 – Always turns out wonderful and still good reheated the next day.

Serves: 2 with leftovers or 4

Recipe origin: Not sure where this came from… I took and modified it from my mother’s collection of loose recipe cards

Ingredients:

1/2 lb. Ground sausage (I use hot sausage links from SamsClub grated)

1lb. Ground beef (I use Italian style meatballs from SamsClub grated)

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

1 Egg

1/2 cup smashed saltine crackers (about 14)

Mozzarella cheese to taste (about 3/4 cup grated; additional for tops if you want)

1/4 tsp. Salt

1/4 tsp. Tyme

1/2 tsp Garlic

1/4 tsp. Pepper

4 small zucchini (or 1-2 large)

 

Brown meat. Add onions and cook a little longer till onions tender.

Wash and cut out bad spots/ ends from the zucchini. Slice in half long ways and coop out the seeds (save seeds for next step). Place hollowed out halves face down in 9×13 pan with 1/2 cup of water. Bake at 350 for 15min to ‘steam’ the zucchini.

While the zucchini is steaming, grate 2/3 of the seeds that you scooped out and mix them with the browned meat, onions, crackers, egg,  spices, and cheese. Stir together until evenly mixed.

When zucchini is done, drain out the water and carefully flip over the halves in the pan.

Fill zucchini with meat mixture. Sprinkle tops with extra cheese if you want and replace back in oven for 30-45min until cheese is browned. Serve hot with any side dish or alone. Sorry for no finished product picture…we were hungry and ate it before I remembered to take a final picture!
