Zucchini summer squash boats stuffed with deconstructed, gourmet Gouda cheeseburgers. Fresh, hearty and satisfying.
If you happen to still have zucchini staring at you from every corner of the kitchen, begging to be cooked, this is for you. If not, you can stuff something else with the cheeseburger filling like tomatoes, winter squash or even a potato.
The cheeseburger stuffing is made of ground beef, onions, tomatoes and dill pickles in a Gouda cheese béchamel sauce spiked with Dijon mustard. The seeds are scooped out of zucchini and the hollows are filled with the cheeseburger mixture then baked. Super easy. Super tasty.
Preparing vegetables this way makes them much more appealing to picky eaters. By stuffing them with something no one will be able to resist. In my house it’s cheeseburgers. They’re happy to get their cheeseburger fix and I’m thrilled to get some vegetables in them.
