What Zucchinis to pick for Boats?
The best is if you could find Zucchinis,
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.

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.
Fifth Step: Bake and enjoy
Place the Filled Zucchinis into the oven and bake fully.
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.

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

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