Yellow Squash

I have had a few of you ask me how I cook the yellow squash I grow in my garden.  I know that there are many different ways to prepare it, but this is the way my family has always made it.

IMG_1732If the squash is small I just chop up the whole squash seed and all.  If it is a little bigger than I scrap the seeds out and dice it up into cubes.

IMG_1731In a fry pan I cook, 3 strips of bacon ( diced), along with some onions.  I normally use yellow onions, but I had red onions so that is what I used.

IMG_1733Cook the bacon and onions till the bacon is crisp, and the onions have started to soften.

IMG_1734You can then take the bacon and onions out, or just add the cut up squash right to the same pan. Season with a little bit of garlic salt, and pepper.  Cook on medium heat, with a lid on till squash is soft and tender ( make sure you stir every few minutes) .  It normally takes about 10- 15 min depends on how big  you cut the squash.IMG_1738My whole family really like this.  But I know squash is not for everyone,  Hope you enjoy it too!

A friend sent two crook neck squash home with my son recently. I have not cooked squash before so I am going to try this recipe tomorrow! It sounds good.

That looks delicious, I'll have to try it. Also try this fritto misto (Italian fried squash): Slice your zucchini (or yellow squash!) about 1/4 inch thick. Dredge in a mixture of flour with garlic salt and pepper. Pour vegetable oil into a pan with tall sides, about 1/2 inch of oil deep. When hot, drop in zucchini (or yellow squash!) and fry until golden brown, turning over half way through. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with salt. Serve immediately.

Great recipe! Bacon makes everything GOOD! This is how is use mine. . . Breakfast Squash Chop squash into cubes (like in your pic) and gently color them in nonstick pan. After then have a nice light golden crust turn the heat down and add beaten eggs with milk (scrambled egg mix) when almost done cooking I top with swiss cheese. I spice only with salt, pepper and sometimes a little fresh ground nutmeg(just a pinch). I love this recipe, so do my children! I wait all summer for fresh squash before making it.

My 14 month old son LOVES yellow squash and zucchini! We usually have it when we cook out (with burgers and hot dogs, instead of french fries) and I just recently started adding it to grilled chicken salad.

I substitute yellow summer squash for zuchinni in my zuchinni bread recipe. I fry it up with onions and green peppers. I also use it raw in pasta salads.

I cut up zuchinni and yellow squash and boil in water until soft. Then I puree and freeze. This is great to add to minestrone soup in the fall/winter.
