My garden is putting out a serious amount of summer squash, both zucchini and yellow squash. I've been giving it to my neighbors, door-to-door, and I still have bunches.

What I need to find is a REALLY GOOD recipe for a yellow squash casserole. We use yellow squash in salads, and we grill it. I used to love it fried when I was a kid, but I really don't eat much fried food anymore. So, I want to make a really yummy casserole--something with squash, butter, onions, and some sort of bread-type filler.

But I'm open to ANY squash recipes anyone wants to share--for yellow or zucchini. Please help!!

1) I love squash. happy.gif
2) I make a squash caserole that's pretty simple.
Basically you boil the squash w/ onions until tender. Drain well. Add just a little milk and shredded cheese, salt and pepper to taste. Mash everything together. Top w/ bread crumbs and then melt a little butter on top. Then bake it all together at about 350 until golden brown. Sorry, I don't have measurements b/c I just do it by "sight" and to "taste." BTW, it works with just yellow squash or a mixture of yellow and zuchinni.

Also my grandmother does this and it's oh so good:

cut the squash in 1/2 longways
boil til tender (20 minutes) and drain
take a fork and rake through each squash
put them on a cookie sheet and put butter and drizzle Karo syrup (white) over them
bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees...

mmmmmmm

Thank you!! wub.gif

No, I've never made chow chow, so yes, I'd need a recipe. But I'll try it if you find one for me, and I'll share a jar with you for the favor! wink.gif

Keep 'em coming, folks! These are great!

I know!! Doesn't that sound great?

I'm making this recipe for stuffed zucchini for our dinner tonight. It sounded really good, and I've got zucchini that are 12" or more, easily!

I also have fresh tomatoes, basil, and rosemary for the recipe linked above. I just LOVE it when my yard gives me such good stuff! wub.gif

I'll let y'all know how it turns out.

My grandmother always diced them and sauteed them in butter, then added corn. MMMMMMMM

I'm lovin' all of these recipes!!

I just went out picking in my garden. I can't believe it. I just picked a zuccinhi that's--get this--18"!!!!!!!!!! (I measured it--couldn't believe how BIG it was!)

ohmy.gif

Of course I took a picture, but I'll add it tomorrow. I'm tired tonight! blush.gif

On another note and just a quick question--is anyone else who's growing tomatoes finding them slow to ripen this year?

I have WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too many tomato plants, and lots of tomatoes, but they just aren't ripening like they should.

Anyone else?

unsure.gif

I do sort of a twice baked squash type dish. Cut the squash in half, length wise and scrape the insides out. Chop the insides up and sautee in butter with diced onion. Put the mixture back into the "shell", top with crushed Ritz crackers and sharp cheddar cheese and bake until the cheese is bubbly.

From my mother-in-law's kitchen ....

3-4 Yellow Squash
1 Medium Onion
1/2 Stick Butter or Margarine
Salt and Pepper to taste

Clean and slice squash. Slice onion and pull apart. Place all ingredients in pan on top of stove. Add butter, salt and pepper. Cook on medium heat, stirring and mashing until water is cooked down.

Medium container Sour Cream
Cream of Mushroom Soup
Pepperidge Farm Herb Seasoning
1/2 Stick Butter

Add sour cream and cream of mushroom soup to mixture above. Let it simmer 5 minutes or so. Remove from heat and pour into a casserol dish. Melt butter, add just enough herb seasoning to top your casserol dish to the butter and blend well. Pour on top of casserol dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. D

Yummy. My ex-husband hated squash but loved this recipe. He's since passed and my daughter always insists that we make this dish either at Thanksgiving or Christmas in remembrance of her dad.

Enjoy!

I cut up squash in "coins" then quarter them so they are small, bite sized. Add chopped onion, pepper and cover with water. Boil until the squash is soft. Drain the excess water. I cook the squash in a Corningware dish that has a lid and can go into the oven.

Add shredded cheese to the bottom of the dish, return the drained squash and onions, top with a layer of Pepperidge Farm stuffing crumbs and more cheese. Bake in the oven uncovered for 5 - 10 minutes - basically until the cheese on top is melted good.

I know you said you don't fry food, but I'll add this recipe anyway:

Coin the squash. Put a cup of flour in a sack. Add the coins to the flower and shake up so they are all covered evenly. Remove the squash from flour and put in a pot of boiling oil. Fry them - I've found that once the seeds start turning golden, they are just about done. Remove the squash from the oil and put them on a stack of papertowels to drain excess grease. Sprinkle with salt - or - even better, sprinkle with garlic sea salt.

Those both sound yummy.

I love fried squash...I just don't cook it much (or for that matter anything fried in deep oil) anymore. But with so much on my hands, maybe I will. smile.gif

Hubby's Favorite: you can use both yellow and zuchinni squash- cut in half lengthwise, lightly brush with olive oil, lightly salt, and grill until tender. (we use our George Foreman).

And, yes, our tomatoes are slow to ripen too! And now I'm being invaded by tomato hornworms!

Oh no!! ohmy.gif

Hope you can get rid of them!!

We love both yellow and zucchini squash grilled. I cut large squash in half, then quarter the halves. Mix them in a bowl with olive oil, dried oregano, garlic salt, and grated parmesan cheese (like you use for spaghetti) until coated, then grill them. YUM!!

but I'm tired of eating them like that, so that's why I'm looking for good recipes! wink.gif

I've got a really good squash casserole recipe that includes chopped water chestnuts which add an interesting crunch, but I'm at work and the recipe is at home. I'm pretty sure it's in my Cobb Jr. League cookbook.

I know this is late in coming...

I inherited about 15 pounds of summer squash the other day.

I made this recipe last night and it was wonderful :

You can go ahead and grate the zuchunni and freeze it in the amount needed for the zuchunni bread recipe. It work great and you can save a lot very quickly.
I also vote for the veggi lagasna. It's great, you just use sliced squash in place of the noodles.

The postings you may read may not always be the thoughts of both owners..

We have tons of squash right now, too. Slice the squash and a Vidalia onion and blanche them in water....don't add butter and all the good stuff. Let it cool and put it in freezer bags to enjoy later! Then around October when you're really missing all those fresh home grown veggies, pull out a bag and cook it like you normally would. It's ALMOST as good as fresh!!! I think it works best if you don't cook it all the way and try to squeeze out as much air as possible.

Love all the casserole recipes! thanks everybody.
