Zucchini Boats

Tonight was the first time I made these! They were really good. I just used what I had around the house and it turned out great! Even the kids liked them! Definitely a keeper!

2 medium zucchini
1 cup rice
1 lb bacon, cooked and chopped
1 jalapeno, minced
¼ cup onion, minced,
½ cup shredded cheese
1 pinch dried basil
1 pinch dried Oregon
Seasoned salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Parmesan cheese

Prepare the grill for indirect heat.

1.   Place the zucchini in a pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook 5 minutes. Drain, cool, and cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out the pulp to about 1/4 inch from the skin. Chop pulp.
2.   In a bowl, mix the zucchini pulp, rice, bacon bits, jalapeno, onion, tomato, and cheese. Season with basil, oregano, seasoned salt, and pepper.
3.   Place zucchini on grilling tray. Stuff the zucchini halves with the pulp mixture.

4.   Place tray on the prepared grill over indirect heat. Cook 15 to 20 minutes, until tender.
