What is Zucchini Boats?

Zucchini Boats are called simply all of the recipes with baked zucchinis, where they are first cut to half.

There are millions of recipes you find with baked zucchinis and everyone had got their favorite. I am sure you have made yours as well even without knowing what are those called.

I, for example, have been baking Keto Zucchini Boats for years before I have actually found out what they are called. And only then I have realized, that they actually do look like tiny little lovely boats filled with your favorite filling.

One of the additional Recipes using Zucchini is our Smoked Paprika Zucchini Chips or Stuffed Zucchini Mini Bites Recipe you should have a look at.

What filling to use for Keto Zucchini Boats?

As you see on the internet, they are filled with almost anything. One of the main ingredients is almost always some sort of cheese, to give it that lovely stringy feel and cheesy taste.

Some people fill them up exactly the same as they would fill up the pizza and therefore they really are popular.

What types of Zucchini Boats exists?

As already mentioned, everyone has go their own style and recipe. But the most popular ones are:

  • Pizza Zucchini Boats
  • Bacon Zucchini Boats
  • Cheese Zucchini Boats
  • Taco Zucchini Boats
  • Cream Cheese Zucchini Boats
  • Ground Beef Zucchini Boats
  • Vegetarian Zucchini Boats
  • Italian Zucchini Boats
  • Sausage Zucchini Boats

the choice is really endless and never stops.

I have decided to make our favorite Cheese Bacon Keto Zucchini Boats everyone loves and adores.

What Zucchinis to pick for Boats?

The best is if you could find Zucchinis, which are even size. That will make it much easier for you to set the time for baking.

Also, make sure they are as straight as possible. There are lots of zucchinis, which are not straight and that is making problems not only by cutting them in half, but also placing them onto the baking dish. And straighter they are, more of them will fit onto the baking tray.

Take the ones, which are pretty thick. That way, you will be able to fill them with much more cheese and fillings.

With the types of zucchinis, it does not really matter. It is just a preference. You can pick yellow ones or green. They all are as delicious as you can imagine.

There are so many types of zucchinis. The best is if you look at The Spruce Eats, where they full describe each type of Zucchini and summer squash for you.

Easy steps on how to make Keto Zucchini Boats:

First Step: Wash and Cut Zucchinis

Make sure the zucchinis are properly washed before cutting them.

Cut each of the zucchinis diagonally halfway through.

Second Step: Clean the inside

With a spoon or knife, clean the inside of both sides. I normally just take the middle part out, enough for me to be able to fill them with cheese mixture.

You do not have to try and clean it fully. Keep most of the zucchini part in. The baked zucchinis are really tasty even without any filling.

Third Step:Mix the filling

Place all of the fillings as per the recipe into a big bowl and properly mix it all together.

Fourth Step: Fill the Zucchinis:

Fill each half of Zucchinis fully and place them onto a baking sheet covered with Parchment Paper.

How to make Zucchini Boats on the Grill?

Making those lovely Keto Zucchini Boats on the grill is also a perfect idea, especially when all of the BBQ starts and grilling season is around the corner. All you have to do is prepare them as mentioned above and just place them onto the grill.

It is good to have the grill closed half way, so you do get all of that cheese melting and bacon fully cooked.

And do not forget, you can also make them in an Instant Pot and Air Fryer. I have not tried it myself, but have read about a few people making it. Must be delish as well.

What to serve with Keto Zucchini Boats?

In our family, we like it with any type of fresh salad. Also, a great choice is Low Carb Tabbouleh Salad, which just adds to the aha moments once you serve it.

They are also perfect with roasted Brussels Sprouts or baked mushrooms or carrots.

I have also served them with Pumpkin Fries as well as our Keto Fiber Noodles.

If you have some more Zucchinis left, have a look at this perfect recipe of Zucchini Au Gratin. I am sure you would love it.

Can you store Keto Zucchini Boats?

They are a perfect choice as a leftover breakfast or lunch the next day. Just keep them in the fridge till the time you are ready to serve them.

They do not even needs to be reheated. They are as tasty cold, as warmed up as well. Choice is really yours.

They do keep in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. But if longer, better freeze them.

Can you reheat Zucchini Boats?

Yes, you can certainly reheat them if you wish. I would suggest reheating them again in the preheated oven. In that way, you still get the crispiness back on.

Do not use microvave, as they will become pretty soft and chewy.

Can Zucchini Boats be frozen?

If you decide to freeze them that is also an option. Place them into a sealable container or Ziploc Bag. if you do want to stack them, make sure you place parchment paper in between each zucchini. This will prevent the Keto Zucchini Boats to stick to one other. Also, it will be much easier for you to take them separately as many pieces as you need for that particular day.

I guess, enough talking and writing and lest go to the actual recipe.
