Ingredients

  • 1 small fresh zucchini
  • 5,5 oz mozzarella (155 g)
  • 10 thin slices salted bacon
  • a bunch fresh basil
  • pepper

Instructions

  1. Rinse the zucchini and pat it dry with a clean kitchen towel. Slice the zucchini lengthwise into very thin slices because it will cooke faster. I used a mandolin slicer for this. You should have 10 nice and even slices in the end for this recipe. Then place the zucchini slices on a clean chopping board and sprinkle with some pepper. Place some fresh basil leaves on top.

  3. Cut the mozzarella into even pieces that are more or less the same width as the zucchini slices. Then place a chunk of mozzarella and another fresh basil leaf on top of the bacon and zucchini. Sprinkle with extra pepper.

  4. Carefully roll every zucchini slice up. Make sure that the mozzarella is wrapped tightly. You can secure the rolls with a toothpick if necessary.

  5. Then transfer the parcels to a baking tray and grill them under a hot grill for a couple of minutes until the zucchini is soft and the bacon is cooked through. Remove the rolls from the grill and place them on a serving dish. Sprinkle with extra pepper and serve hot.
