Loaded Zucchini Skin

Loaded Zucchini Skin INGREDIENTS: ½ lb bacon cooked until crisp, then chopped

4 large zucchini

2 Tb extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp salt

1 tsp black pepper freshly ground

½ tsp chili powder

¼ tsp ground cumin

2 cups shredded cheddar

green onions

sour cream


Preheat oven to 400° and line a baking sheet with foil. Set aside.

Cook bacon using your preferred method and chop into small pieces. Set aside.

Cut zucchinis in half lengthwise. Using a large metal spoon, scoop out seeds from the insides, then cut each half into chunks.

Place zucchini pieces into a colander & sprinkle with salt to draw out excess moisture for about 5 minutes.

Transfer zucchini to the prepared baking sheet and toss with olive oil. Season with chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper.

Bake until slightly tender, about 5 minutes.

Remove from oven and top each piece of zucchini with cheese and bacon.

Return to oven and bake until cheese is bubbly and zucchini is tender, about 10 minutes more.
