Stuffed Zucchini with Bread Crumbs

Ok, like, YUM!  Seriously, never thought I could replace meat as a main dish.  But, this works!
You'll spend about 30 minutes making this.  This makes 4 servings, so increase the amounts if you need to.
  • 2 medium zucchini, about 1 pound
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 cups soft bread cubes (I used whole wheat bread)
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoning (I used seasoning salt, Mrs. Dash, etc.)
  • salt and pepper
Wash zucchini; cook whole in a small amount of boiling water for about 8 minutes.
Drain and cut into halves lengthwise. Scoop out pulp; chop. Melt butter in a heavy skillet, sauté garlic and onion for a minute, or until onion is tender; stir in chopped zucchini pulp, bread cubes, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Stuff zucchini with bread mixture.
Place zucchini in a greased baking dish and bake at 350° for 20 minutes, or until zucchini is tender.
