  1. Place zucchini in a microwave-safe pan, cut-side down. Add about 1 inch of water to the bottom of the pan. Cook in the microwave oven for about 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  3. Remove zucchini from the microwave and add to the boiling water. Cook until desired softness, 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, combine whole wheat bread, cayenne peppers, jalapeno pepper, bacon, Cheddar cheese, cream cheese, seasoned salt, onion salt, black pepper, and basil in a bowl until filling is combined.
  5. Drain zucchini and cool until safe to handle, about 10 minutes.
  6. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  7. Scoop out zucchini pulp to about 1/4-inch from the skin and add to filling. Use an electric mixer to mix. Stuff zucchini halves with filling and place on a baking sheet. Sprinkle dry bread crumbs on top.
  8. Broil under high heat until tops start to brown, 3 to 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • The spice can be decreased by using milder peppers.
