I make a stuffed one too, but its actually quite simple.
I cant remember ALL the ingredients, but these are the ones I do.

1 zuchinni or squash (I usually use butternut or buttercup for this)
1/4 pound of Velveeta chopped into small bites
sleeve of Ritz crackers, crushed
1/4 cup of brown sugar
2 tbs of butter

Cut open the squash, and cut out some of the meat, chop into smaller pieces, mix with the cheese, crackers, brown sugar and butter. Stuff into the squash shell, and bake.

I know it sounds like a crazy combination, first time I saw the recipe, my face looked like I had sucked down a whole lemon, lol. But I tried it, and it has this yummy crispy sweet crust over the top of it. SO yummy!
If I find the proper recipe, I will update!!

Maybe I got the Idea from GG. I stuff Taco Zuke boats with piled up layered with a little refried beans, taco filling, salsa or salsa on the side, depending how Stuffed they are, what have you, and top with a layer of cheese and bake. I think tipping them upside down empty and grilling before filling and returning to the grill to heat may be just the ticket.

O. I made Weekend breakfast once. Zuke shells, cooked scramble eggs and sausage and caramelized onion and again cheese on top. A juxtaposition to serve alongside some quiche? or some other dish. For some reason, I don't' recall that was as successful even though in theory it should have been. Zukes. Your summer's Best Friend.

Preheat the grill to medium. Grill the zucchini boats with the lid closed over medium heat until the shells are tender, about 10 minutes. 3 stars 1 reviews
