Just when you thought you’d made every kind of zucchini dish possible (shout out, quarantine zucchini bread)…

You can make your breakfast healthy AND fun, too, with these deliciously simple Zucchini Breakfast Boats! Totally customizable to your taste, they only require 8 ingredients and take 30 minutes to make. I fill mine with the perfect savory scramble and top with parsley and nutritional yeast (adds a cheesy, nutty flavor), but you can top it however you choose! Other ideas could be salsa, shredded cheese, green onions… you name it.

Meal prep tip: these last up to three days! You can make the boats in one go and change up the stuffing each day, or even prep the scramble in advance, too.
