I use one large Vidalia onion and 3 med yellow squash. I cut into chunks not slices both for onion and squash. I only used 2 tbsp. of butter. I used garlic powder and blk pepper which I put on the onions I sautéed them first to get caramelized then added the squash... this is a keeper.
Very delicious! The cooking fat was a combination of olive oil and a small amount of butter for flavor. The fat was reduced by about half. I used 2 medium yellow squash and half an onion. The onion was cooked for a few minutes prior to adding the sliced squash. The pan was covered and the vegetables were allowed to brown slightly. I might try adding in fresh garlic next time.
This was fantastic! I used 3 squashes and cooked them in batches, keeping the cooked ones warm. I cooked the onions on medium-low heat for about 10 minutes so they would carmelize a little, and then added the squash, garlic salt and pepper. Such a delicious taste with a minimum of prep time; just my kind of recipe, easy and with terrific flavor. Thanks for posting this great recipe!
I gave this 5 stars. My family loves this recipe. I got my copy from My future mother-inlaw. She makes her yellow squash kinda this way. She doesn't add the onion and she adds some water to cook the squash. I do not always add the water. When I make this recipe I prefer to use garlic powder as I think the garlic salt is to much of a overpowering salty taste. I didn't think the onion affected the flavor it tasted just like my future mom-inlaw makes it. Thanks for posting a great recipe. Christine (internetnut)
I make this also. I add 3-4 cloves minced garlic. Sprinkle of hot pepper flakes. Cut butter down to 2 tbsp. I then use a little swanson chicken broth, just to keep the squash from burning. It is an awsome recipe. Grandkids love it.
This is an excellent dish. I have always included at the end of cooking some sour cream which my mother always put in....she liked creamed dishes.
I made this skipping the onions (DH hates onions) and sauteeing in bacon grease as another reviewer suggested. I forgot the garlic salt, but with the salty bacon I don't think it was needed. I liked it, DH didn't care for it much. I may try again. It was easy to make. ***UPDATE*** I've made this a few times now, with and without onions, with and without bacon, etc. Though I'm a garlic lover, I like this recipe without the garlic salt. This is a great side dish. Sometimes I throw in whatever other veggies, sliced, that I have laying around. It's always good. My husband still doesn't like it though, he hates veggies.
Very easy to throw together, and tasty too. Thanks for sharing!
This was very good and simple. I doubled the squash (I think it would be too buttery for our taste with only one). A quick and tasty recipe we will enjoy many times. Thank you.
This is the way I learned it and one of my favorite summer side dishes.
