{Good Eats} A Squash Wonderland

Oh My! Do we have squash growing in Our Garden!!

This is what I harvested yesterday. Can I just say that this is what I could pick EVERY DAY!?!?  Our Garden has gone CRAZY!! I’m starting to look like the Zucchini Lady. If you stop by our house, I’ll most likely send you home with one (or 5) too! Which means I’ve been on the hunt for lots of good squash recipes.

There are a few that have become FAVORITES for our family from last year.

Zucchini Carbonara is so easy and so good! And the Littles think the squash is pasta too. Bonus!

A reader shared this family recipe for squash cakes last year, and I DIE every time I make it. So easy and SOOOO delicious! Nice little mid afternoon snack, or an appetizer.

I saw these Zucchini Oven Chips on Dine & Dish’s Pinterest board recently and knew it would have to be added to the “gotta try it” recipes.  I think I little homemade ranch dressing would round these out quite well. Don’t you?

Kristen from Dine & Dish also shared this pin for Courgette Fritters & Feta. That sure look tempting!  Of course I need to turn my brain on to “weigh” the ingredients, but those fritters look worth it!

I had another reader share this recipe for Chili Beef Stuffed Zucchini which I still have to try, but it definitely looks like something both the Punks and Hubs would really like!

So now it’s your turn. What fun squash recipes to you like to make? Any family secrets up your sleeve, or favorites you’ve pulled from a magazine? Would love to hear!

  1. Mom always used to make this when zucchini was in season & it was too hot to turn on the oven: dice squash into 1/2 inch pieces, place in microwave-safe bowl. put a pat of butter/marg on top. Sprinkle fresh or dried dill over the top. put in a splash of water. Cover with saran wrap & microwave for 3 minutes on high. Stir. Microwave for another 1-2 minutes (depending on size of dice & how well-done you want your squash). This is a great side dish; it’s also great over rice pilaf.

  2. YUM – wish mine were doing better! Try making Zucchini Parmesean. We just made this last week in AZ when wondering what to make with a huge 16″ squash. Same process as making eggplant parm but no pre-salting. Kids loved it and we used it up the leftover meatballs & sauce from the night before.
