Meet Mr. Zucchini Head (Grain-Free Recipe included!)

Funny Food – who knew Mr. Zucchini head was grain free? 


  • zucchini slices from a massive zucchini approximately 3/4 inch thick
  • Spolumbo sausage – chicken cranberry (I find this has less spice and so more kid friendly)
  • Sweet potato
  • Onion, any type
  • Blueberries

Here’s how I prepared each part of Mr. Zucchini head:

  1. Zucchini wedges: covered both sides with extra virgin olive oil and Salt & pepper, grilled them for 5 min each, until done
  2. Spolumbo Sausage – I oven roasted about 6  sausages at 300 degrees Fahrenheit  for ~ 50 min then finished them on the BBQ until done.  I then sliced a few into thin wedges (for eyes & ears) and some into small lengthwise bits (for mouth)  I like to roast the sausages before to help them cook because I try not to have the fats burst out of the sausage while cooking them as I feel this helps to keep the moisture in and hep the sausage tasting great over the next few days. I always cook in bulk.
  3. Onions – slice and cook with a tremendous amount of butter until caramelized to your liking.
  4. Sweet potato – peel, cube, bring to boil in pot with sufficient water. Cook until tender to pierce with a fork, drain most of the liquid, add butter, salt & pepper and mash.
  5. Assemble face as per picture and enjoy!

*Mr. Zucchini Head may also be paleo if you swap butter for coconut oil!
