Cheese and Onion Squash

This is one of my favorite summer recipes: Cheese & Onion Squash.

cheese and onion squash

It's really simple, healthy, and my kids will eat it, so that makes it pretty much perfect!

6 yellow squash
1/4 t. salt
1/8 t. plus ground pepper
1 T. sugar
1/2 C. shredded cheddar cheese
1 T. minced onion

Wash and slice squash into thin rings and place in steamer basket on stovetop. Steam until tender.

Using a potato masher, mash squash in a collander over the sink. (The squash will be watery and this drains the water off as you mash it.)

Put squash in a bowl and add salt, pepper, sugar, cheese, and onion. Mix until cheese melts.

Voila! Serves 4.

If kids will eat it then chances are I will eat it. Squash is a beautiful thing.

Rachel said...

I've got one child that won't eat squash and one that won't eat cheese. It sounds delish to me, but I'd have to prepare a small amount for a "just hubby and me" night. Which I will!

Wish I didn't hate squash...however my hubby and child enjoy it so maybe I'll give this a try.

When I read the title I nearly puked. Squash in Britain is a concentrated drink you add water to. Maybe you call it a cordial?
What are the squash you are on about? Sorry to be a lemon (crap pun I know)

Amy said...

rubbish - how is it that you want to puke but mo. over here is from Britain and thinks squash is beautiful?

Life As I Know It said...

Yum! that looks really good - and something different too.

Mo has been hanging around with you American Moms for a lot longer than me and has probably picked up the colloquialisms. Either that or he's just being nice but thinking exactly the same thing as I am.

Meredith said...

Thanks Amy! I have 9 squash sitting on my counter and no time for a casserole.

I never knew the trick about mashing in the steamer basket, either.

Amy said...

rubbish - heh.

Meredith - You're welcome! It's so easy and so good it's a keeper for sure.
