Hello! I'm a busy SAHM of two older kids, ages 9 & 8, and an 8 month old. I'm always looking for quick and easy recipes, especially now that my older kids are doing more after school activities/sports. I order/receive farm fresh produce from The Produce Box every week. Apparently yellow squash and zucchini are an end of summer/beginning of fall crop! The past two weeks I've received a 2-3 in each box, but I have no idea what to do with yellow squash. Any ideas are welcome!

You can use yellow squash with this recipe and it should be good:


Zucchini Parmesan Crisps

1 lb. zucchini or squash (about 2 medium-sized)
1/4 cup shredded parmesan (heaping)
1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs (heaping)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
freshly ground pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with foil and spray lightly with vegetable spray.

Slice zucchini or squash into 1/4 inch-thick rounds. Toss rounds with oil, coating well.

In a wide bowl or plate, combine breadcrumbs, parmesan, salt and pepper.

Place rounds in parmesan-breadcrumb mixture, coating both sides of each round, pressing to adhere. The mixture will not completely cover each round, but provides a light coating on each side.

Place rounds in a single layer on baking sheets. Sprinkle any remaining breadcrumb mixture over the rounds.

Bake for about 22 to 27 minutes, until golden brown. (There is no need to flip them during baking -- they crisp up on both sides as is.)

Yellow squash is delicious and can be prepared just like zucchini.

You can saute it with olive oil, salt and pepper.

Roast it in the oven with olive oil, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese.

Yellow squash is also excellent in soup or pot pie.

You can even use it in baking!

Here is a link with great ideas too:

 Cut it up in cubes and sautee it in some butter with onions and peppers.

Do the above but add little tomatoes cut in half, some Italian sausage, and a little bit of your favorite cheese. Then serve on top of your favorite pasta.

Look up a recipe for ratoullie(sp?) and instead of using eggplant subsitute for your yellow squash/zucchini.

You can slice them and dip in egg and seasoned breadcrumbs and fry (or bake).

Only once we surrender to the Mystery can it reveal itself to us!!!

My family loves them (both) made into pizza. Just slice them into rounds and top with tomato paste and a sprinkle of garlic powder (to taste then top like a pizza and bake at 450 for 15 to 20 mins.  I use a cookie sheet with parchment paper and they dont even make a mess to clean up. No one I have ever served them to notices that they are veggies they just scarf them down like mad.

Thanks for all the suggestions!  As of yesterday, I put all my squash in a food processor.. made shreds.  The only two recipes that I have, A to Z bread and zucchini bites, call for shredded/grated squash or zucchini.  I used 2 cups of it this morning for A to Z bread... and I still have tons left!  I guess I could make tons of the appetizer and bread, or maybe find a cookie recipe, and freeze it all... but I'm out of flour. 

Next week my produce order were include yet more yellow squash and zucchini.  I'll try the deep fryer and some other of the ideas you all posted.  I'm up to my ears in squash!

I love them sliced and then dipped in egg and then a corn meal breaking and fried. If no cornmeal, you can just use seasoned flour. That's my favorite way to make them.

We also roast them in the oven with other veggies and sometimes grill them (just slice them lengthwise so they're easy to turn and don't fall through the grill rack.

 I only like it roasted or lightly sauteed so it's tender crisp.  Same with zucchini.  I didn't try them till I was an adult and now I like them ;) I can't get the family to like them though, lol.

First off welcome to the group! My favorite way to make zucchini is in a bread form. I've honesty never had yellow squash so I'm no help there. Here's a bump.
