Stuffed Grilled Zucchini

Friday is Bible class day at my house…my dad feeds us spiritually at 9 A.M. and my mom physically at 11 A.M. Dad taught on the Father’s glorification of the Son, and mom brought tossed salad, seasoned cukes, grilled cheese and Dungeness crab on wheat and stuffed grilled zucchini! Yum…I’m so spoiled by both of them!

She was kind enough to send me the following recipe.


Stuffed Grilled Zucchini

  • 4 medium zucchini
  • 5 tsp olive oil, divided
  • 2 TB chopped red onion
  • 1/4 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs*
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella* cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh mint*
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 TB grated Parmesan cheese

Cut zucchini in half lengthwise. Scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4 inch shells. Brush shells with 2 teasp olive oil, set aside. Chop pulp in large skillet, saute pulp and onion in remaining oil. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer Add bread crumbs, cook and stir for 2 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove from heat. Stir in the mozzarella cheese, mint and salt. Spoon into zucchini shells. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Grill, covered**, over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until zucchini is tender. 4 servings

* I substituted other ingredients and omitted mint which I did not have

** I put in oven instead of grill



Another tasty way to use up all that zucchini in your garden! Besides being delicious, they’re beautiful…little boats of zucchini fluff!

Happy Summertime!

  1. Food always tastes better when someone else cooks it. I reduced the MB’s of the pictures on our web site I hope they load faster for you. I forget not everyone has high speed internet. I have pictures Of the kitchen, living room, and basement on the page for our new home.
