The yellow squash is in and as one of our all time favorites, I’m going to the kitchen and making a variety of yellow squash recipes. I just got some freshly picked yellow squash.
Let’s get stared with Squash Casserole from JENNIFER LANDIS. 3-4 medium or large squash, 1 chopped onion, 1 can cream of chicken soup, 8 ounce package of cornbread stuffing, 1 cup sour cream, 1 stick butter. Cook squash and onion until tender, drain. Melt butter land mix with stuffing, set aside. Mix soup and sour cream with drained squash and onions. Pour into a greased casserole dish. Top with stuffing. Bake at 350º for 30-40 minutes or until top is golden brown. This is very tasty and a keeper.
The next Squash Casserole I’m going to make is from MARTHA SNYDER. It’s a different recipe with a different taste. I believe you’ll like this one too because of the use of cheddar cheese. 2 pounds squash, diced, 1 medium onion chopped, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, 2 tablespoons butter, 3 tablespoons flour, 2 eggs, 1 cup evaporated milk, 8-ounce mild cheddar cheese, shredded. Cook squash, onions, salt and sugar until squash is tender. Mix in butter, flour, eggs, milk and cheese. Mix well. Pour into well greased casserole dish and cook at 350º for 30 minutes. This is another keeper recipe. It’s that good.
Yellow squash now gets another treatment. My family was surprised when I made it but they really enjoyed it very much. Here is JUDY JONES recipe for Squash Pie. 1 1/2 cups sugar, 1 cup grated squash, (if you don’t have a grater, put squash pieces in a food processor and pulse), 3 eggs, 1/2 stick butter, melted, 1 rounded tablespoon flour, 2 teaspoons lemon flavoring, 1 teaspoon coconut flavoring. Mix all ingredients together thoroughly and pour into an unbaked pie shell. Bake 25-30 minutes at 350º. Optional: You may add 1/4 cup coconut to the recipe, if you like. Try it! You’ll like it.
Once again, I urge you to make some homemade goodies and ship to our men and women in the armed service. Let them know that you “got in the kitchen to show your love”! A package from home means a lot to these daily heros! Thanks!
