Tasty Tuesday - 8 Ball Zucchini

Ready for round 2 of Tasty Tuesday?  I made this recipe last week and it was so freaking amazing I almost couldn't wait to post it!

A couple of years ago my sister's co-worker gave her an 8 ball zucchini.  It is this cute little(ish) round zucchini that looks, well, like an 8 ball on crack. I guess you are supposed to pick them small but most people pick them when they are a little larger so they can stuff them.  So Stuff them we did!  It was delicious.  Jen made up a recipe with some hamburger, cheese, rice, onions, tomatoes, etc.

This year we decided to grow them on our own.  The seeds got planted a little late but they finally took off and I have a cute little 8 ball zucchini bush.  WAY smaller than the mondo sized regular Zucs I have growing.

I did a little research online and stumbled across an awesome recipe on this blog Never Enough Thyme.  It is so cute and delicious!  I tried to take my own pictures while I was cooking but I just couldn't do it justice like Lana did.  Please check out her blog for the recipe.  You will not be sorry!

One suggestion I would make is drain the bacon fat before cooking the rest of the veggies in it.  Another suggestion is to come hungry.  Because you will eat the whole darn thing and be scraping the inside of the zucchini for more!



  1. That looks freaking FANTASTIC. I'm soooooo doing that this weekend.

  2. What a yummy sounding recipe! May have to try that one soon. Have a great week!


What's up little pup?
