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!
