Stuffed Zucchini Boats Recipe

Stuffed Sausage Boats




Yield 6

An easy and fun dinner of zucchini with a meat stuffing. My kids love helping make these and I love that they are an easy and healthy meal idea!



  1. Wash zucchini and put into a large pot of water (do not peel, cut, or remove ends) Bring to a boil and boil for about 10 minutes until somewhat tender.
  2. While that is boiling, heat the oil in a large skillet and cook onion and pepper. After veggies have cooked for 5 minutes, add meat and cook until browned.
  3. Once zucchini are cooked, cut in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  4. Place zucchini on large baking sheet and add the scooped out seeds to the meat and veggies mixture. Add the roasted red peppers and the egg(s) to the (somewhat cooled) meat mixture and stir well. Evenly divide the meat mixture and “stuff” it into the zucchini boats.
  5. Top each with a slice of cheese (optional) Bake for 25-30 minutes or until well heated and cheese starts to bubble. Enjoy!
