Adopted Recipe...I worked through all my adopted recipes and made changes to suit my tastes and cooking habits. I do not cook with bacon grease, so I changed the recipe from bacon grease to butter. (Note added 2/5/06).

I made this last night and my husband that has never cared for squash, liked this dish! I used cut up frozen yellow squash and cut back on the water (since frozen tends to have enough moisture). I really enjoyed the flavor and plan on making it again soon.
