My kids love pan fried yellow squash. I love growing yellow squash in my garden. We just planted for fall this past weekend so I’m hoping for a late crop. Some people like to fry squash by breading it first, but I like to just cut it into thin circles, add it to a pan of 3 or 4 pats of melted butter, add some garlic salt, and cook over medium heat until tender. Yummy!

So this week’s Foodie Friday Roundup is all about
Crookneck Yellow Squash.
Not up for frying your food? Try this baking recipe from CookingClassy.com – Roasted Garlic-Parmesan Zucchini, Squash and Tomatoes. This recipe includes some of my favorite foods. Mmmm…
Ok, I have no idea why I would have never thought about baking crookneck yellow squash this way! It’s so simple! My kids love squash with not a whole bunch of other ingredients and they would love it prepared this way. Check out the recipe on AddAPinch.com
Are you a gluten free family? With my oldest being on the spectrum, I try to keep gluten to a minimum. He doesn’t have celiac disease but I can tell a difference when he’s been eating wheat products. So I thought this recipe from DishByDish.com using yellow squash in place of pasta is a must try!
TheSouthernLadyCooks.com really knows how to speak to my
heart stomach with her recipe that combines squash AND bacon. Yes, bacon. MMmm.
Is weather cooling down for your region? It’s cooling down from being in the 90s for the last several months here. Funny how my kids want to wear long sleeves when it’s 70 degrees out! All that means is soup season is quickly approaching and this yellow squash soup recipe from SuperHealthyKids.com would do the trick!
Ok, last recipe (even though the options go on and on for yellow squash). I love it when a recipe incorporates the food as the serving presentation too. Like this recipe from CookGlee.com
My family just loves squash – crookneck yellow squash and zucchini squash. If you don’t have a big garden but have a giant pot you don’t mind watering a bunch, then definitely try growing your own. There’s just something about home grown veggies! It will take about 50 days to be ready to pick. Learn more about growing crookneck yellow squash at Burpee.
