  • I slice them, put them in a skillet (nonstick) and then I use about 4 tablespoons of olive oil, salt pepper, onions, 2 teaspoons of garlic and I saute them.

  • I personally don't like them. But have cooked them for dh.
    Olive oil is good, but veggie oil works too... just a bit (tbl spoon)
    I slice and dip in egg and either flour or bread crumbs (whatever is handy) and
    fry med heat both sides until done. salt and pepper for taste.
    I also have put parsley and a pinch of garlic on them too...

    You can also oven bake them at 325 degrees 20 mins on each side or until lightly browned
    you can also dip them as above before baking....

  • I slice them up into approx 1/2" - 1" thick rounds toss them in a bowl with olive oil, salt and pepper and grill. Usually I add other veggies too...red onion, eggplant, mushrooms...any combo of those.

  • I love them! There is so much that you can do with them.

    For zucchini: Cut them into sticks and dip into hummus or salad dressing. Shred to put in salads, on pizza, in sauces, in soups, in quesadillas; slice thin to use in lasagne; grill. I will list a few recipes, you can send me note if you would like any: zucchini brownies, zucchini casserole, creamy zucchini lasagne, zucchini and spinach soup, lentils with zucchini, marinated zucchini salad,

    There are a gazillion kinds of squashes; if you let me know what kind you have, I can forward recipes.

  • i cut them in cubes or slices, put them in some bacon grease with some garlic salt, cajun seasoning, and chives or green onions. that's the simplist way but you can google any recipes at allrecipes.com

  • I fry bacon in the pan, cut them up in peices, leave the grease in there. Slice your yellow squash up in round slices, slice up an onion in that. Cover and cook on low-med heat. It takes a while to cook down. They shrink ALOT! This is how we do it in NC. It's southern. (not healty, but VERY tasty!)LOL
