Ingredients

  • 1 Large Yellow or Green Courgette
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Curry Powder
  • 450g Sausage Meat
  • 4 slices of Bacon (Cooked, Crispy)
  • 1 Shallot (finely diced)
  • 1 Red Apple (finely diced)
  • 1 Clove of Garlic (minced)
  • 40g Cream Cheese
  • 60ml Maple Syrup
  • 110g Parmesan Cheese (grated)

Method

  • Break up the sausage meat and sautee in a large frying pan until browned, adding a pinch of black pepper whilst cooking. If you are the meat from linked sausages, remove the skins first.
  • When the sausage is cooked, add the bacon to the pan to warm through. After several minutes drain the grease from the pan into a small bowl. Set the bowl to one side.
  • Place the sausage meat and crispy bacon into a large mixing bowl and cover to keep warm.
  • Sautee the shallot, apple and garlic in 1 tablespoon of the reserved sausage grease, then add to the cooked sausage and bacon. Next add the cream cheese and maple syrup, mixing well so that the cheese warms and melts. 
  • Split the courgette in half lengthwise and then use a spoon to scoop the seeds and pulp from the centre of the courgette halves.
  • Place both halves of the courgette into an aluminium pan, flesh side facing up. Sprinkle the salt, pepper and curry powder over both pieces of courgette, concentrating on the scooped out area. Press the sausage mixture into this space, shaping it into a mound. Finally sprinkle some spare onion chunks and grate fresh parmesan over the top of the stuffing.
  • Prepare the grill for indirect cooking and preheat to 260C - 280C. When the barbecue reaches temperature, place the courgette pieces in the aluminium pan on the grates, away from the direct heat and close the lid.
  • In approximately 15 minutes check that the courgettes are cooking and the cheese is melting and beginning to brown. When cooked, remove the courgettes from the grill and serve immediately with dill and baby tomatoes.
