Cheesy Zucchini Bites

Garden-fresh zucchini and cherry tomatoes are tastefully combined in these colorful appetizers.


35 servings


5 medium zucchini (about 6 inches long)
4 ounces bleu cheese, crumbled
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 pint cherry tomatoes, thinly sliced


Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C).

Cut zucchini into 3/4-inch slices. Using a melon baller or small spoon, scoop out the insides and discard, leaving the bottom intact. Place zucchini on an ungreased baking sheet; spoon 1/2 teaspoon crumbled blue cheese into each.

Combine Parmesan cheese, basil and pepper; sprinkle half over bleu cheese. Top each with a tomato slice; sprinkle with remaining Parmesan mixture.

Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve warm.
