So I kept seeing these posts of people making hamburger sliders using zucchini as the buns—and I thought man those look good! So I went searching for large zucchini to make for the sliders and only could find small zucchini for sale.

Using the zucchini that I could find and fueling my desire to make hamburgers with zucchini I came up with this casserole! It’s probably one of the best things I’ve made in a long time. It’s filling, it’s easy to make, and it’s vegetables I’m eating! Get the taste of a ‘Big Mac’ without the calories or fat.
