Squash Recipes


The squash and zucchini are producing.  I was worried about my zucchini and cuke plants.  The leaves were being eaten, and I had no idea by what.  I monitored the plants early morning and late evening and found the culprits, cucumber bugs.  Striped and spotted.  I tried a soap solution to no avail, and than resorted to Sevin.  Within a day or two, cucumber bugs were gone and the plants recovered nicely. 

The top recipe requires:

  • 3 yellow squash
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 - 10 ounces of Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup of mayo
  • 3 tablespoons of melted butter
  • bread crumbs.  
Cube squash and zucchini and saute for 10 - 15 minutes along with the chopped onion.  Mix the mayo and eggs.  Add the cheese to the mixture; blend well.  Drain the squash and zucchini and add to a greased baking dish.  Mix in the mayo, egg and cheese mixture.  Top with bread crumbs and drizzle the butter over the bread crumbs.  Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

 The second dish requires:

  • Yellow squash
  • ground beef
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • Parmesan cheese
Slice squash lengthwise and remove seeds.  Brown beef and peppers.  Fill the center of the squash with the mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Bake for 15 - 20 minutes at 350 degrees. 




  1. Amazing. Mine are just starting to flower. We Went from so cold to so hot. Hopefully things will grow now. And if you come out to Utah I will personally take you on the hike to White Pine Lake. Just make sure you walk 3-4 miles 4 or 5 days a week for a month or more to get prepared. The switch backs are insane.

    1. 3-4 miles per day 5 days a week, lol. I may just have to look at your beautiful pictues and leave it at that.
