More Zucchini Boats



We have had zucchini boats stuff with Italian flavors,
sausage and rice, and chicken and cheese.
This time I tried something like a Philly Beef and Cheese 
Steak Sandwich.  I think it was our favorite!

I sauteed onions, mushrooms and peppers with garlic 
and olive oil.  To browned ground beef I added teriyaki 
sauce, steak sauce, (1 part teriyaki to
3 parts steak sauce) a little sugar, salt and pepper.
Mix it all together and layer it in the boats
that have been seasoned with s & p and olive oil.
Top with lots of cheese.  Bake 40 minutes at 400
for large boats like these.

  9. Are all these zucchini coming from YOU R garden? If so, I'm impressed.

    1. They are! One plant, too...it's doing well! We have a lull right now, though, without anything to pick from it. But lots of blossoms look promising. I think it's all the rain and cooler temps....but the cool temps aren't so great for the tomatoes, which have been slim pickings for sure!

    2. Lucky you! The last time I tried to grow zucchini it got some type of plant disease and turned to a puddle of slime.

  12. I was up until 6 a.m., but gave up after 11 because I figured you had hit the hay. These look delicious - great combination. Finally had cherries last week but have not had corn yet. Must soon.

  14. So nice to actually eat the fruits of your labour!
    Good job Betsy.....such a versatile veggie...and delicious!
    What kind of goodies did you bring home from the auction?
    Cheers!

    1. I didn't bring home a thing! Nothing screamed 'take me home' this time! haha...what a change!

  15. That sounds (and looks) delicious! Especially with corn on the side . . . oh, how I love corn on the cob! (grilled with LOTS of butter) Still haven't seen any zucchinis large enough for trying this yet . . . all our zucchinis look like little cucumbers . . .

    Notice you're snacking on cherries from my state! So am I . . . by the truck load it seems. Usually we don't get more than one bag of cherries a summer because they're quite pricey even locally, but for some reason this year the prices have been really low- must be good crops!?- and they are tasting better than I ever remember them to be!

    1. I agree about the cherries...the biggest and sweetest I've ever had, yet plenteous and less expensive! A win-win!

  16. I found an ark down in the garden yesterday. I left it there in case it rains again and we need a really big boat.
    But, your stuffed zucchini looks really yummy. I wonder what I have around that would fill up a zucchini and make a really good supper...

  18. I planted four zucchini (courgette) plants this year and now I'm snowed under with the things ! One plant is producing yellow zucchinis, they look really weird. I have made zucchini boats three times since you first published the recipe, and now I'm fed up with them. Do you want me to send a dozen zucchinis to you? Free!

    1. haha...if you have lots coming on like that you have to pick them when they are very small...just 4-5 inches long! Otherwise you could use one to float over here like the Mayflower! haha. Give some to the strawberry lady!

  19. I love how you cook, Betsy! Are your boys fussy eaters? Our son (with autism) used to be very fussy but now eats almost anything.

    1. Alex is not fussy and loves to eat just about anything and everything. We've been known to hide food from him because he will eat and eat and eat until he's almost sick. At least he likes my cooking! haha. Harry and Spencer are extremely picky and rigid in what they will eat. They can't sit at the table and eat a meal with us without getting gaggy from looking at our plates. I just let them eat earlier than us rather than deal with that.
