Squash Recipes


We have Squash! I just pick my first yellow squash and I wanted to

share a few of my favorite recipes with you.

Squash Patties

  • 2 cups grated yellow squash
  • 1/4 cup self – rising flour
  • 1/3 cup self – rising cornmeal
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Pepper & Salt to taste

Mix all above ingredients together. Spoon mixture into a hot greased frying pan.

Brown both sides. Drain on paper towel.

Squash Casserole

  • 2 pounds yellow squash, cut in 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1-teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup saltine crackers, crumbled
  • 1/2-cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup buttered breadcrumbs
  • Pepper & Salt to taste

Place the squash, onion, salt, and pepper in a large saucepan.

Add a small amount of water.

Cover and cook the squash until tender, stirring occasionally, and add more

water if needed.

Drain the squash and onions, return to the pan and stir in the butter.

Butter a 1-1/2-quart baking dish well.

Stir the crumbled crackers into the squash mixture, and turn into the buttered casserole.

Pour the milk over the squash and sprinkle with the cheese and breadcrumbs.

Bake at 350°, uncovered, for 20 minutes, until the milk is absorbed and the

squash casserole is bubbly. Serve hot. Serves 4 to 6.

    I love squash so much! I wish they would grow in the summer down here, but they are cheap enough, as they come in from GA. I miss going out and picking fresh squash, though. We have to grow them in the fall and winter.
