Stuffed Zucchini

Stuffed Zucchini is a wonderful summertime meal. This recipe takes a little more time, but it sure is a treat! We haven't had it nearly enough times this year.


  • 1-1&1/2 lb Hamburger, browned
  • 1 or 2 Large (or more if they are small) Zucchini
  • 1-2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Medium Onion, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Oil
  • 1 Egg
  • ½- ¾ Cup Bread Crumbs (or as much or little as you like)
  • ½ Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt, Pepper, and Oregano

Brown hamburger and set aside.

Cut squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the insides being careful to leave about a ¼ inch shell. Lay the shells in a 9x13 baking dish and set aside.

Put the squash insides, garlic, and onion in a sauce pan with the oil. Simmer till it gets kind of mushy.

Combine browned hamburger, cooked squash mixture, egg, Parmesan cheese, and bread crumbs. Mix. Season with salt, pepper, and oregano to taste.

Put stuffing mixture into the shells and top with ketchup. Put a small amount of water in the bottom of the dish to keep it from drying out and cover with tinfoil. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

You may wish to put a little more ketchup on the top when you take it out, or wait to put it on until near the end. I like to bake some on it and add more at the end.
