Deeply caramelized (just this side of burned) Southern NC squash dish--almost-- its authentic and better tasting but not as good for you when you use bacon fat rather than the olive oil. Delicious with "cooked all day long green beans" and sliced summer tomatoes for a vegetarian meal

Recipe Ingredients for Mom's Southern Squash

2 tbsp olive oil
1 lb yellow squash
1 medium onion
1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper

Recipe Directions for Mom's Southern Squash

  1. Cut 1 lb yellow squash into 1 inch pieces and dice onion.

  2. Heat the oil on meduim high in a large (preferably cast iron) skillet until it shimmers.

  3. Add veggies to pan, stir to coat with the oil then cook without stirring until they brown deeply--nearly burned.
