Big Green Egg Stuffed Zucchini

Big Green Egg Stuffed Zucchini

Dinner last night was a classic Pantry Night here in the Buddha household. I had some really good sausages on hand and wanted to do something different with them. Looking around in the refrigerator I found my inspiration… Zucchini’s! Finding a way to bridge the two ingredients took a little more digging in the pantry. I am happy to say this dinner turned out great and I am eager to share it with you. Now sit back, grab yourself a glass of Pinot Gris, and enjoy this recipe for Big Green Egg Stuffed Zucchini.

For this meal I used Dizzy Pig’s Mediterranean-ish rub, sun dried tomatoes, pine nuts, goat cheese, Kalamata olives, green onions, sausages, and zucchini’s.

Mise en place

I removed the sausages from their casing and crumbled them in to a cast iron pan. I cooked the sausage for about 10 minutes until browned.

  1. I know I’m super late to the party, but this looks amazing! I hope turkey sausage or hamburger might work too. Thank you!

      1. Butcher was out of all but the spiciest turkey, so I got mild chicken sausage before they put it in the casings. DELICIOUS! My husband and I inhaled them. This was just my fifth egg cook (including cooking nothing for the first). I wondered about a few ingredient quantities (small?) so upped a few. Thank you!
