Lamb Stuffed Zucchini

Recipe by mommycook
READY IN: 55mins




  • Wash the zucchini well and cut the stem off. If using regular long zucchini, slice in half lengthwise. Using a melon baller, hollow out the middle of the zucchini while keeping a "boat" of outer flesh intact. Swirl 1T. olive oil in the bottom of a baking dish and place the zucchini boats in the dish.
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a non-stick medium fry pan, saute the onions and garlic in the other T. of olive oil. Let them soften but do not brown.
  • Add the ground lamb and cook until the lamb is mostly cooked through.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Stir in the bread crumbs and rosemary, salt and pepper.
  • Beat the egg lightly in a separate bowl then pour over the lamb mixture and stir to combine.
  • Spoon the lamb mixture into each zucchini cavity, mounding to fill. Any filling that falls around the zucchini will just make nice browned bits to eat.
  • Cover with foil loosely and bake in oven for 20 minutes.
  • Remove foil and bake another 10-15 minutes or until zucchini is nicely softened and stuffing is browned.
