8-Ball Zucchini, stuffed

8-Ball Zucchini, stuffed (made by my fiance!)

¬†Have you ever heard of 8-Ball Zucchini? Don’t worry– I hadn’t heard of it either. Until our friend brought one over from his garden. This is what they look like before you cook them:

According to this farm website, it’s a hybrid variety of zucchini squash that’s become much more popular over the last several years; the size and shape make it ideal for stuffing. We had no idea how to cook this thing, so my fiance went to Google. He came across this Soupbelly.com recipe, and gave it a whirl.

First he  hollowed out the zucchini; then he mixed the guts, chopped tomato, chopped onion and cooked ground turkey (a replacement for bacon). He sauteed the mixture for a few minutes, removed it from the heat and added bread crumbs, cheese, salt and pepper. He spooned the stuffing into the zucchini, covered it with cheese and baked it for 40 minutes.

The result: fantastic. Such a perfect blend of flavors. I highly recommend this recipe to anyone!

Bell pepper and onion quiche

My bell pepper and onion quiche

I made this Food.com recipe last week, and it turned out really great. You can use a refrigerated pie crust if you’d like (as opposed to one from scratch). Just bake the crust for five minutes, and then add your filling. The filling includes a cheese mixture (cheddar cheese and flour), sauteed bell peppers and onions, eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Bake the quiche for 35 to 45 minutes and voila, you have a tasty treat to last you all week!
