Today’s recipe comes from our reader Charity Dillon. Charity writes to us:
This is a recipe my mom prepared for us every summer when our garden started producing yummy yellow crookneck squash. It is fresh and summery and it is hard to eat just one helping! I have no idea how she was inspired to do it. (She’s just creative that way.) It is still one of my favorites that I prepare for my own family now. Very easy!
Summer Squash Sauté
4-5 yellow crookneck squash
1 sweet onion
1 egg, scrambled
2-3 Tbsp butter
salt and pepper to taste
Half and quarter squash, then slice into 1/4 inch pieces. Cut onion in half then slice about same width as squash. Melt butter in skillet over medium heat. Then add squash and onion and stir to coat with butter.
Sauté just until squash and onions are tender. Add scrambled egg to squash mixture and stir until egg is completely cooked. Remove pan from heat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and enjoy! This is great paired with fresh sliced tomatoes and grilled chicken!
