It’s summer and that means squash. Squash in the garden. Squash in the garage. Squash everywhere. I love squash but I do have to constantly search for new recipes. I think you will enjoy these! Feel free to send me yours.
Our first recipe is fried squash patties. These are great! You can freeze them but if you do, you need to warm them in the oven not the microwave. I enjoy these very much! Sometimes I make them real crispy, other times I make them like potato pancakes and have apple sauce with them.
The second recipe is cream of squash soup. This has a unique taste that I think you will enjoy. It’s easy to make. Find an unusual bowl or fruit or veggies to serve it in for a great meal starter.
The third recipe is a staple at my house. It’ zucchini bread. I make many loaves and keep them in the freezer. Then when I need to take something to a friend, I pull it out, thaw it and am ready to go.
The fourth dish is squash pickles. If you want to make these just for a family picnic, etc, you don’t have to water bath them. Keep them in the fridge for about a week and then toss the leftovers.
The fifth recipe is Bacon Squash Casserole. My husband thinks that anything that contains bacon is a good thing! I tend to agree. The bacon adds a different layer of flavor. You can also use pancetta.
The last recipe is a little different. It’s Squash Puffs. Kind of like hushpuppies but made from squash. The family will love these!
