My neighbor gave me some squash from his garden (looks like it might be banana sqaush). I don't know the first thing about it: how to prepare it, do I need to peel it? Does anyone have any simple recipes and step by step instructions? LOL

We have squash coming out of or ears right now! LOL! I have 2 easy favorites-
(1) Wash the squash, don't peel, just slice it (the UM is great to use for squash), dice an onion to go in it, then just add salt & pepper - to taste, 1 tbs of olive oil & 1/8 c water. Put it in the oven on 350 until it is tender about 45 min. When it is done drain the excess water out & eat it like that or put cheese on it!
(2) Wash, slice, dice onion, salt & pepper & cover with water, boil until tender, & drain. Mash squash mixture & add - 2 eggs, 2 tbs sugar, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 8oz. shredded cheese - stir all of this together, pour in casserole dish & sprinkle with crushed Ritz crackers. Bake at 350 for 30-40 min.
Hope this helps. I have been using 1 or the other every night. :D

I like to slice it in chunks, toss with EVOO, salt pepper and crushed garlic, put in my grill basket with onions, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, bell pepper and grill them. It is soooo good that way!!!

Here in SE Oklahoma we wash it, slice it...use your UM...dip it in flour seasoned with salt/pepper, then throw it into a skillet with oil and fry it a little crispy. Some people dip it in milk then the flour mixture and deep fry it. I also like to steam it and grill it.

Since my dad has to watch how much fried food he eats, this is one way he cooks it:
Wash and slice squash. On a greased baking sheet, arrange squash in a single layer; salt and pepper. Spray a light coating of cooking spray (or use your spritzer and spray with oil) over squash. Bake in oven until squash becomes golden brown. After mine has baked for a while, I sometimes turn the oven to low broil just for a minute or two, to add a little extra crispiness.
We also do this with frozen okra.
I also like to marinate squash, zucchini and broccoli in teriayki sauce and grill them using the grill basket. The pineapple rum sauce also tastes good with this.
