I am going to tell you this once and only once. Zucchini is amazing! I love Zucchini recipes and I thought I’d make it with some bacon to make it ten times more awesome. If you haven’t seen already, I have created plenty of amazing bacon recipes. I’ve made some amazing bacon and eggs recipes. Even cookie recipes!! I am really really stuck actually on which cookie recipe is the best, the chocolate cookie recipe or the peanut butter cookie recipe. But that is a completely different story altogether.

This Zucchini recipe was something my mamma made pretty much every other Sunday. It’s a classic recipe that has been passed down through the generations. Each generation adds something new and exciting to the recipe. I have added the best ingredient known to mankind, bacon! I haven’t told anyone in the family I have done this yet, I plan on doing it this Sunday. If you see no more posts from me next week, send a search party.
