this recipe is so surprisingly easy yet delicious! i had the idea the other night to make enchilada stuffed zucchini but i didn't have the right ingredients on hand. what i did have was zucchini, ground turkey, and bleu cheese. of course, i always have hot sauce in my fridge so buffalo-style stuffed zucchini immediately popped into my head.
i am so glad it did.
if you happened to have made my buffalo chicken dip and liked it or just like buffalo chicken wings, you will love this recipe. the best thing is its a dish all on its own. if you feel like you need more, just serve over rice or with roasted potatoes.
Buffalo Bleu Cheese Stuffed Zucchini
4 medium zucchini (you want them to be on the fatter side)
1 lb ground turkey or chicken
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup sour cream or greek yogurt
1/4 - 1/3 cup hot sauce (i use franks hot sauce or franks buffalo)
1/4 cup crumbled bleu cheese (i used gorgonzola)
preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
chop tops and bottoms off zucchini and slice them all in half longways. scoop out seeds and enough flesh to make a place to stuff meat.
meanwhile, cook turkey/chicken in large skillet over medium heat. add onion and cook until onion is tender and meat is just cooked through. remove from heat and drain juices well. add back to skillet and stir in sour cream/yogurt, hot sauce, and cheese. stir well until combined. spoon mixture into 8 zucchini boats. place zucchini on foil-lined pan and bake for 15-20 minutes until zucchini is just tender. remove and serve immediately.
