Cheesy Bacon Zucchini Boats Recipe @pinch

These zucchini boats are a creative way to serve summertime's favorite vegetable. The bacon bread crumb crunch gives the zucchini a nice flavor and texture. They have a nice cheesy buttery flavor. Super hearty, they are a nice summertime dinner. Just trying something new with my lovely zukes from the garden. A girl can only make so much bread!
