Yellow Squash recipes?
 
My neighbor gave me some yellow squash and I'm looking for some ideas with it.



Kevin PA...........can you make that "Mock apple pie" dessert with yellow squash or does it have to be the zucchini?

TIA

I have never tried it but I am guessing it would work. You could always try it in the Mock(zucchini) Apple Cobbler first to try it out.

Thanks for responding Kevin. I will give it a try!

bumping for more ideas for yellow squash............

My favorite is deep fried with ranch dressing for dipping. I like it grilled too. Of course there's the standard squash sauteed in butter with onions and garlic. I also like squash casserole--I plan on trying this one using lc bread crumbs for the topping

I LOVE that Paula recipe!.....I also replace the cracker crumbs with LC bread crumbs AND I add cooked, crumbled bacon....*LOL*

DELISH!

Mackenzie 07-12-2007 08:53 AM

hmm.......that Paula Deen recipe does sound good! (but I'm not surprised) :hyst: I never thought of grilling it? And I like grilled veggies. I just might try it! Thanks..........and keep those ideas coming!

Sliced with onion, tomato, mushrooms, and fried with bacon!

rosethorns 07-12-2007 11:54 AM

yellow squash sliced & vadallia onion , 1 clove of garlic chopped sauteed with olive oil and your choice of herb and spices. Delish. Ess

Raw............I never ate it raw? is it good? So many ideas and only 3 squashes.. :D

StacyW 07-12-2007 01:12 PM

I grill mine on the Foreman. Slice it, spray with Pam, grill for 12 minutes, toss with butter and seasonings (we love Greek seasoning for this.) Even the kids love this.

Nigel 07-12-2007 01:29 PM

My two fave ways to cook it are:

Sauteed in butter with a little Mrs. Dash added in during the last minute of cooking-and I like it al dente.

The other way is to oven roast it in some peanut oil and add some Mrs. Dash on top.

It's also great raw in salads or sliced thinly and dipped in ranch dressing...it tastes kinda nutty. The best squash eaten raw in my opinion are the pattypan/scallop squash--they have the best flavor.

Mackenzie 07-12-2007 01:38 PM

Wow.......who knew there were so many recipes with the lowly yellow squash! I've made zucchini sauteed with garlic, onion, and then added stewed tomatoes and put shredded cheese on top. I never thought of using yellow squash for this? Thanks everyone for all the ideas............

This sounds so great too! I thought of cutting the squash the long way, brushing it with olive oil, salt and pepper and grilling it. I've done this with other veggies and it's great! I've never tried greek seasoning! Sounds like something I didn't know I needed..........;)

Oh, yes, you need it! :p It is very versatile. Perfect for pork chops, great on eggs (I don't like eggs much, so I am always trying to fix the taste of them), soups, potatoes, and whatever else you have. We haven't found anything yet that it doesn't work with. It is my favorite mixed seasoning in the kitchen. Also, my DH has a shaker of it at work, he uses it on his lunches there.

Thanks for the heads-up on the greek seasoning! I have so many spices and grow my own herbs but I am going to pick up the seasoning!

:D

Slice,add to ziplock bag with olive oil,minced garlic & italian seasonings. Shake until they're all coated. Place single filed on a foil lined pan then sprinkle with parmesean (dry grated) cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes @ 350.
If you like zucchini chips try these sliced real thin and baked until crisp. YUM!

Wow.......that sounds great too!!!! I may have to go and buy more squash!

Candid 07-13-2007 06:16 AM

My votes go to squash cassarole and grilled that's my favorite ways to fix it.

dawnyama 07-13-2007 06:55 AM

Whenever I have yellow squash I just boil it and put my homemade alfredo sauce on it. I made it the other night and my kids kept asking for more! My alfredo sauce is quick and easy-- 1 stick of butter, 1 cup of heavy cream and 3/4 cup parmesan cheese (the cheap in a green container kind) and 1-2 cloves of garlic. I then add some cream cheese to thicken it a little--sometimes a few ounces, sometimes the whole 8 oz brick just depends on what I have on hand. I just put it on the stovetop to "melt" together, but you could microwave it. I love it on chicken too!

StacyW 07-13-2007 11:27 AM

MMMMM! That sounds yummy! I am adding that to my to try list!

This is from Southern US Cuisine
Yellow Squash Pie

Sure the sweetner, flour and pie crust could be sub. Never tried this before but I saw it and thought, heck why not post it, maybe someone has tried it and can tell us what it taste like.

This squash pie is a dessert pie made with cooked summer squash and other ingredients.
INGREDIENTS:
5 medium summer squash, sliced
1/4 cup melted butter or margarine
3/4 cup sugar = Splenda??
1 tablespoon lemon or vanilla extract
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour=Carbquik or Carblose Flour??
2 egg yolks, beaten
dash of salt
baked pie shell, 9-inch=Carbquik/nut crust or no crust??

PREPARATION:
Steam squash or cook in a little boiling salted water until tender. Drain squash and mash. Combine butter, sugar, and lemon extract; stir in flour, beaten eggs, and mashed squash. Pour squash mixture into baked pie shell; bake at 375 for 25 minutes, or until firm.

Slice it julienne style with zucchini, quarter some purple onions, chunks of bell pepper. Put in a ZipLoc bag with some olive oil and apple cider vinegar with whatever spices or herbs you like (basil, sometimes I add chopped cilantro, salt, pepper). Put in fridge and marinade several hours. It's a nice cold veggie salad on hot summer nights.

Mackenzie 07-15-2007 12:03 PM

Here's what I ended up doing with the squash........

I sliced it fairly thin, put it in a casserole dish, covered it with a chunky pizza sauce, chopped garlic, salt and pepper, and covered it with shredded mozzerella and provolone cheese. I baked it in my convection oven for about 40 minutes on 375. It turned out wonderful and my DH who said he didn't like yellow squash ended up eating most of it. It tasted like pizza! Yummmm.....

If your neighbor happens to bring you some more summer squash...here's another delish recipe to try... :)

Has anyone tried the aussie squash fries? That pic sure does look good.

StacyW 06-01-2008 10:18 PM

I have tried them and really enjoyed them. They did not taste like fries (of course), but it was quite enjoyable all the same!

I like to slice the squash into rounds that are approx 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Slice some onion into rounds. Slice some bell pepper, mushrooms & use Cherry tomatoes. Any other veggies are fine too.

Place ALL of it onto some HEAVY DUTY foil. Add at least a half stick or more of butter. Sprinkle garlic salt/pepper & 1 -2 tsp. of oregano. Sprinkle lots of Parmesan cheese. Wrap the veggies tightly in the foil. Place on hot grill for about 5 minutes then carefully turn over and heat an additional 5 minutes (more or less depending how thcik your veggies are cut).

All that butter melts along with the seasonings & cheese while cooking! YUMMY!!!
