Skillet Summer Squash

Rated as 4.61 out of 5 Stars

"The good old-fashioned country way. This is definitely NOT diet food. You don't drain the bacon fat off after you brown it. If you really have to, you can substitute butter, but it won't be the same. You can also use this recipe with a combination of yellow and pattypan squash."

This was great. I added potatoes to it because I wanted to make it an entire meal. I will certainly have it again.

Made this tonight to accompany chicken cordon bleu - it was great. The only difference was I added about 3/4 cup chopped yellow peppers to mine. The peppers sweetened it a bit, and I thought it ...

I usually don't care for bacon in recipes, but this was good. I added some poblano peppers for color and spice. Also, I drained the bacon, peppers and onions and mixed them in with the sliced sq...
