  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • 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.
  • While the zucchini is boiling, dice the onion and bell pepper. 
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet and saute onion and bell pepper for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the ground meat and cook until browned, then remove from heat.
  • Once the zucchini are cooked, cut in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Do not discard the seeds, but add them to the meat and veggie mixture. 
  • Place the zucchini on large baking sheet.
  • Add the roasted red peppers and the eggs to the somewhat cooled meat mixture and stir well.
  • Evenly divide the meat mixture among the zucchini boats.
  • Top each with the shredded cheese if desired.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until well heated and cheese starts to bubble. Enjoy!


Make extra and wrap them up to be reheated for breakfast or lunch on-the-go.
