really was excellent and easy too!
I didn't give this a rating because I unintentionally deviated from the recipe. I used a 40% less fat cheddar blend. The bread crumbs were very dry and we wound up just shaking them off and eating the squash plain. I think a full fat cheese would have helped with that. It took 25 minutes for the squash to soften (I boiled). Next time, in addition to using full fat cheese, I'll sprinkle fresh or panko bread crumbs directly on the squash before topping with the bacon, onion and cheddar.
I've got an over abundance of summer squash in the garden right now and needed a way to prepare it. This was very nice and enjoyed by me and DH. I didn't boil the squash but put it in a hot oven (350F) for about 30 minutes on a piece of tin foil and this made it nice and soft and easy to cut and didn't have to look for a huge pot. I also have to admit I forgot the bread crumbs until I went to submit this review. I know it would have been better with them, but just forgot and it tasted awesome anyways. I used a mexican blend of shredded cheese as that's what I had, this is a very forgiving recipe as even with all my mistakes it was still awesom - we had a lot left over so wrapped it in tinfoil, placed in fridge and tonight will just reheat and have with dinner. Thanks Dreamgoddess for sharing this recipe.
Not out of the oven yet - but I've eaten quite a bit as I've gone along - enough to know this is fabulous! I had a heck of a time finding a big enough pot to boil 6 squash in - perhaps next time I'll try microwaving them. Additionally, I used the Progresso seasoned bread crumbs as that is what I had on hand. I *think* this will develop into a lovely grill recipe - make ahead - wrap up - rewarm/cook on the grill at the boat - I'll update this when I try it! I also think you could use any other hard cheese - perhaps even feta - but not sure there! Thank you for another winner! Spring PAC 2009 Orphanage (HOW YOU GOT TO BE AN ORPHAN I"LL NEVER KNOW!!)
Delicious! I only used one huge summer squash. It came out great. Everyon loved it. We could have eaten it as a meal, all by itself. I'll make it again, and again.
These will make a squash eater out of anyone. Guaranteed. Just squeeze the moisture out of the squash.
Delicious recipe for summer squash, I added a clove of garlic and 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes.
Awesome dish. My hubby who refuses to eat squash, ate his entire portion. Thanks for sharing a great recipe. Easy too! Vicki
This recipe was very delicious. I added 2Tbs of chopped green pepper to the stuffing mixture. I also used swiss and cheddar cheese over top of the stuffed squash. Turned out wonderful. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Wonderful! I loved this and it was soooo easy!!! I will make this again! Thanks for posting!
