DIRECTIONS

  • Slice squash as thinly as possible- I use a mandoline to do this quickly.
  • Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add squash and onions and season then cover with water.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally until water evaporates.
  • Can be eaten at this point, but I like to cook it until it is almost brown, you just have to stir very frequently because it will stick pretty bad. Cooking it a long time will caramelize the vegetables and it becomes a sweet side dish. Warning- it isn't pretty, but it is tasty!
  • Make this into a main dish by adding chunks of ham during cooking. Also delicious!
