My boyfriend suggested I add some squash to the fried potatoes as a way to use up the extra squash. It tastes really good as a side dish to pork or chicken.

Great flavors but as many other said...way too much oil. 3T of EVOO to start. Finishing it with some butter to taste when squash was added did the trick. I didn't have three yellow squash so I used one squash one zucchini and half a red pepper instead. Looked colorful and tasted great.

a cup of oil and a quarter cup of butter? Ugh. I pan fried the potatoes/squash in a couple of tablespoons of butter and that is all. There is no need to go through with all the oil absorption it cooks just fine without. As for the rest tasted delicious even when I discovered I had no garlic and had to use garlic bread topping instead.

Very very good but a bit rich with all that butter and oil. I cut back the oil to about 1/2 the amount called for because I just knew from reading the recipe that it would be too much for me. Still I really enjoyed the end broduct the yellow squash is a great addition to classic potatoes and onion.s Thanks for sharing!

I have fried squash onions and potatoes together for a long time all I do different is I coat the veggies in flour and season with salt and pepper. Shake off the excess flour and start off with about an inch of shortening or oil in a skillet. When they are browned I stir them and if I need more grease I add it then. I have also fried them in the oven and it takes less grease. Either way it is a southern staple at my house in the summer...very good...

Just used two or three tables spoons of butter and caramelized the onions before I added the potatoes cooked for about 10-15 minutes than added the squash and cooked another 5 minutes. Came out perfect!

I decreased the oil by half and didn't even add the butter. The end result was still pretty greasy. Next time I won't add the onions until I put the squash in. Diced onion does not need to cook for 30 mins. They were pretty much burned black at the end of the cooking time.

This was such an easy dish to make. I was cooking potatoes and thought what if I put in squash...did a search and this was the first recipe that popped up. It was so flavorful. Yes I will make things again.
