Yellow Squash

Recipe by  

"I thought I would try creating something I hadn't seen before. I combined an element of stir fry with some ingredients I had seen popping up in other squash recipes. Squash, onion and jalapeno are fried with bacon for a tasty summer side dish."

  1. Place bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, and set aside. Add the squash, onion, and jalapeno to the skillet. Fry in the bacon drippings until tender, but still firm, stirring frequently. Crumble bacon into the skillet, and season with soy sauce, salt and pepper. Stir, to blend in seasonings, and serve.

Seven or eight stars! The best yellow squash recipe EVER. I didn't have the jalapeno peppers, but I added a green bell pepper instead. Both me and my husband went over the moon! Thnk you, Ann Girl!

It's so soggy, and gross. Not something I'll ever try again.

This is a good recipe, however, I prefer it with garlic added and without the soy sauce and jalapenos.

Loved this squash. Just different enough from our usual, but will go with so many dishes. I used poblano instead of jalapenos since we're a little wimpy about too much heat. Thanks, Ann.

Prepared this as written, including the unusual addition (at least for me) of the fresh, chopped jalapenos - but I couldn't resist adding some fresh, minced garlic too. Colorful and delicious, even though the soy sauce kind of dulled the vibrant, fresh yellow color of the squash. The taste by adding it, however, made up for its somewhat compromised appearance. Loved the addition of the jalapenos, which provided a splash of color and interest more than it did taste. And, as is usually the case, bacon makes it even better! Nice, creative twist on the same ol' squash.

Just made this dish, and I love it! Hubby tried it, and liked it also, but not one of his faves. I tweeked it a little, adding some garlic salt and onion powder, also replaced jalapeno with a small cayenne pepper minced up. All in all, very good side dish, will probably make it again :)

This was good, and it even got my 9 year old to like squash! I have made it several times now and its always a hit.

I have to give this recipe 4 stars only because I made modifications. I sauteed onions, yellow squash, and zucchini in bacon drippings. Then I seasoned it with Mrs. Dash seasoning spice and a dash of salt. I'll try the original recipe soon.
