2 lb summer squash, halved and sliced (4 1/2 c approximately before cooking)
8 slices bacon or 1/2 c real bacon bits
1 large onion, chopped
8 oz pepper jack cheese, grated (for less heat use part plain Monterey jack cheese)
1/2 c dry bread crumbs

Cook squash until nearly tender. (I microwave squash in a covered casserole dish for about 10 min with no water added.) Fry bacon until crisp, remove from pan, and crumble. Saute onion in bacon drippings (or 1 TBSP vegetable oil). Spray a 2 qt casserole dish with cooking spray. Put in half of squash, half of bacon, half of onion, and top with half of cheese. Repeat layers and top with bread crumbs. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 to 40 min or until thoroughly heated and lightly browned.
8 to 10 servings

Incredible Fried Squash

Last Summer I was at my Mom's house. A friend gave us big yellow squash from his garden. Mom used an electric skillet to fry it and I have to tell you it was the best thing that's passed my lips in a good long time!

She was rather sneaky about it too.

Rather than the usual milk, egg and flour dipping method, she used pancake mix and made a thick soupy consistency. She dipped the squash into that and fried it in a small amount of oil until brown on both sides and the squash was tender. It was awesome!!!

I've done this myself a few times since I got back to Texas and had rave reviews on it. I don't fry often because I don't like to clean up oil splatters off my stove. But this is one thing that I will fry and smile while I clean up, remembering the taste of that fried squash.

That sounds awesome! I've just recently discovered Feta cheese. I'm broadening my uses of it and think this sounds delicious!

As soon as Alan posted this recipe, I added feta to my shopping list. I've been looking for some new tastes, and this recipes looks like a winner! Thanks, Alan!

I found Feta at Walmart. In one place it was rather pricey. Over by the tortillas and Mexican cheeses, they had some that was half the cost. I've been using that and buy several at a time. We take it to the lease and I can top any vegetables with it. I've tried Zuchinni, Spinach, and Chinese Snow Peas so far. I also add it to scrambled eggs. Yummmmm!
