Yellow Squash (Kid Friendly)


This is a favorite summer recipe of  Jason’s. I had not been introduced to it before we were married, but the first time I had it I fell in love. It is a delicious variation from the typical fried squash that I grew up with. It is also quick and easy to prepare on a hot summer day!


1-2 pounds yellow squash cut into 1/4-1/2 inch slices (fresh is best, but I used frozen this time)

1/4-1/2 pound bacon cut into small pieces

4 oz. grated mozzarella cheese



Place squash in skillet with a tablespoon or so of water.


Add bacon, and cook over medium-high heat until bacon is cooked and squash is tender, stirring regularly.


(oops. . . I took these pictures from two different times that I made this recipe, hence the stainless steel pan and then the cast iron one.)

Top with mozzarella cheese and let sit until cheese melts.

Serve. The rich flavor of the bacon saturates the squash and the melted cheese on top makes this hardly seem like a “despised” vegetable! Give it a try and let me know what you think.


  1. It's the only way to eat summer squash in my opinion.
