Zucchini Recipes: Cheeseburger Zucchini BoatsBy
You’ve gotta try this fun zucchini recipe! Little boats that you can eat…how cool is that? What a perfect way to get your kids to eat zucchini!
Cheeseburger Zucchini Boats
3 small zucchini
1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, chopped tiny
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. chili powder
1/2 cup cheddar cheese (I use raw white cheddar)
Cut off the ends of the zucchini and boil them for about 10 minutes. In the meantime brown hamburger meat, onion, garlic powder and chili powder. Salt to taste.
Slice cooked zucchini lengthwise.
Use a fork and spoon to scrape out the “zucchini guts” (sorry, I live with boys) and add it to cooked hamburger meat.
Scoop equal amounts of hamburger mixture into each “boat”. Top with shredded cheese.
Put in oven broiler for a couple of minutes until cheese is melted then serve right away.
Now you can eat them while singing, “Great green globs of slicky, slimy zucchini guts…”
Or…you can skip the sing-along and just eat them.
