Recipes Using Yellow Summer Squash

Here is a recipe that I made myself and my husband loves it! You take yellow squash and zucchini squash cut up in slices, then add tomatillos (they are a small green tomato, I think from Mexico. I get them in the local grocery store). Slice them up too, put in a skillet with olive oil and low-fat margarine. Simmer and saute' till soft and looks like it's cooked. Then add some salt and pepper and YUM! It's so good! Hope you try it, if you do tell me if you like it, ok? (08/16/2006)

Any vegetable goes with cheese sauce! Fry them like zucchini. Use them the same as zucchini in breads and fritters (I like some onion shredded in with the squash and use a tempura type batter). You can use them instead of cucumbers in bread and butter pickles. They'll taste mostly of vinegar and onion but it will use them up! (08/17/2006)

Squash Dressing (yellow summer squash)

In this you may use other "cream soup"

  • 3 cups cooked squash (well drained)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 1 stick margarine
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 small pan corn bread, baked and crumbled I use one pkg. cornbread mix
  • Ad

  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon sage

Saute' onions, celery, and pepper in margarine and add to squash. Add corn bread. Mix soup, milk and eggs and add to squash. Add sage and mix well. Put into baking dish and bake at 450 degrees F until brown.

This is a very good side dish, especially good with beans. In the summer when I have plenty of squash I cook, measure and freeze it to have to make this dish the year around.

Zucchini Cheese Pie

This recipe calls for zucchini but I don't see why you couldn't substitute yellow squash or mix the two squash. This is a very yummy meatless meal.

  • 1 pkg Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • 2 tsp. mustard (prepared yellow)
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 4 cups sliced zuchinni (tiny ones)
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • Ad

  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 tsp. parsley
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. basil
  • 2 eggs

Separate, spread and pat the crescent roll dough into a 9 inch pie plate. Spread mustard over crust. Saute zucchini, onion and parsley in butter till tender. Add spices and let cool down. Beat 2 eggs well. Add eggs and cheese to sauteed mixture and pour into pie plate. Bake 20 minutes at 375 degrees F.

Note: If you want to double this you can fix in a 9x13 inch baking dish.

Ovens vary so check to see that it is not mushy in center. It should be firm.

Southern Style

Slice squash, put oil or bacon grease (really good!) in skillet. Chop an onion. Put onion in hot skillet, stir a bit then add the squash. Fry then cover and let steam. Clearly done when soft. Salt and Pepper and put it on the table. Love it!


If you want, crumble a slice of cooked bacon over the dish. Good Eats!! (08/21/2006)

This isn't exactly a recipe, but I dice the squash, add a little water, and cook it in the microwave for 4-5 minutes. Then I add it various dishes- soup, casserole, rice or pasta dish. (06/21/2008)
