The squash is so crunchy and no grease!



Slice squash as if to fry. Dip into beaten egg. Coat with the Panko bread crumbs and place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F. for 30 minutes. No other bread crumbs will work except the Panko.

You will have to decide the servings yourself.

This is a squash recipe that my family really enjoys and is a good way to use yellow and zucchini squash when they threaten to take over your garden!


  • 3 - 4 small yellow squash
  • 3 - 4 small zucchini squash
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 small pepper, diced
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • Advertisement

  • 2 - 3 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • French's canned fried onion rings


Saute yellow and zucchini squash, onion and pepper in saucepan for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Mix mayonnaise and eggs thoroughly and then add cheese.

Combine all ingredients in a greased casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees F for about 30 minutes or until set. Top with 1/2 cup French's onion rings about halfway through cooking time.

A great use for any kind of winter squash.

Total Time: 45 minutes to bake, 10 to prepare

Yield: 4



  • 2 winter squash (I used butternut)
  • 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick, less if desired)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (less if desired)
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamon (less if desired)
  • 1/2 tsp salt (I used a lot less)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Wash and cut the squash in half lengthwise, scrape out seeds, and place, cut-side down in a baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes, for a butternut squash. If you use a smaller squash, it's done when it is fork-tender

  3. Remove from the oven and flip the squash over. You may need to slide a spatula under the squash to have it come up nicely.
  4. Add 1 Tbsp. butter to each half along with a sprinkle of cinnamon and cardamom.
  5. Mash the squash a bit or scrape it with a fork some to mix everything together.
  6. Place in the oven for 5 more minutes.
  7. Add salt if desired and serve.

  • 1 acorn squash, cut in 1/2
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Scoop the seeds and stringy pulp out of the squash cavities and discard. In a small mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, butter, syrup, and salt and pepper to taste. Rub the squash cavities and cut sides of the squash with the butter mixture and place them on a baking sheet, cut side up. Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour until the squash is tender when pierced with a fork. Serve 1 half per person.


My Variation: I cut the squash in half, seed it, and microwaved it cut side down, for approx. 10 min. in a glass dish. I then baked it in a 350 degree F oven for 15 minutes.

Baked Acorn Squash with Brown Sugar and Butter

I do mine in the microwave on high for about 10 minutes or until they are soft. I just put in a tablespoon brown sugar, put a pat butter on it and then put some raisins and walnuts into them. (12/12/2007)
