Loaded Zucchini Skins

by Laura

Years ago, I started creating a collection of zucchini recipes. It was out of necessity. This loaded zucchini skins recipe was included. I had zucchini growing in my garden like crazy.

Well now, I have no garden. However, I still am more than happy to take any excess zucchini from my friends or neighbors. When it comes down to it, I will even purchase some from the grocery store. I love zucchini. It is one of my favorite veggies. I love how versatile it is.

It just so happens to be National Zucchini Day today. So I had to celebrate such a holiday for one of my most favorite veggies! I also teamed up with the #celebratingfoodholidays bloggers to provide you a collection of zucchini recipes. They are all worthy of this food holiday. Be sure to check out the collection after today’s recipe.

Now for today’s recipe, it’s a twist on the classic appetizer of loaded potato skins. I swapped out the potato and replaced it with zucchini. I must admit, I think I like the zucchini version better.
