Low Carb Yellow Squash Casserole

Rating: 4.66 stars
This recipe was created to use up a large amount of squash we were given. We modified an existing recipe, swapping almonds for crackers and whole cream for milk. It satisfies my husband's diet and tastes great!

Skillet Summer Squash

Rating: 4.61 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.

Scrambled Eggs with Zucchini and Feta

Rating: 4.5 stars
Feta, zucchini, and onions are scrambled with eggs to create a delicious yet quick and easy breakfast. These eggs don't need salt because of the feta , but if your feta isn't as salty, you might need to add salt to taste.

Sauteed Patty Pan Squash

Rating: 4.68 stars
Rarely can you find patty pan (aka scalloped) squash in the grocery store. However, many farmers markets have them. In Texas, it seems that every farmers market is overflowing with squash come June. However, if you can't find them, any summer squash will do. I also have made this recipe using yellow squash and zucchini and it was quite delicious. The freshness of the ingredients scream “summer”.
