  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese shredded
  • 1 tbsp Spring Onion chopped

  • Cut the zucchinis into halves lengthwise. Remove the pulp and wash to make the insides clean and empty ready to be filled.
  • Use 2 teaspoons of olive oil to coat the zucchini slices. Set aside.
  • Cut the pulp and bacon into small pieces
  • Pour the remaining olive oil into a skillet then sauté the pulp, onion, bacon, and garlic. Add some salt and pepper to taste. Allow it to cook while stirring for about 2 minutes or until it turns a golden brown then remove from heat.
  • Fill the empty shells of the zucchini with the cooked mixture. Top it up with some shreds of cheddar cheese and chopped spring onion.
  • Place the stuffed zucchinis over medium heat. Allow to grill for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat when the zucchini becomes tender.

  • If you so choose, you can use ground beef in place of bacon. Ham will also make a good replacement for bacon.
