On a recipe card in the produce department from my local grocer. I imagine you could use either yellow summer squash or zucchini.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat grill to medium direct heat. Meanwhile, cut squash lengthwise into halves. With spoon, scoop out pulp, leaving at least 1/2 inch shell; set aside. Coarsely chop pulp. Cook bacon in medium skillet over medium heat until browned. Add onion and celery; cook and stir 2 minutes. Stir in squash pulp; cook and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat; set aside.
  2. Stir in bread crumbs, cheese, and thyme. Spoon filling evenly into squash shells; pressing lightly. Place on grill. Grill covered, 7 to 11 minutes or until squash is tender and filling is hot.
