These things are awesome. I never had these until recently at a BBQ place and now I buy them every time I'm at the grocery store.

They:
Taste good
Cook quickly
Do not require peeling
Usually go well with other ingredients (for stir fry, etc.)

Anyone else enjoy these little guys?

Oh it's a long standing tradition - possums love yellow squash

Yup, I dig em, too. Tasty sauteed with some oil and garlic and a few seasonings. Mmmm or with some curry over rice. Or throw in some zuke and tomato. Don't like them raw, though. Don't like raw zuke either.

I posted my favorite way to eat them in a thread in the recipes forum about spinach with garlic.

One of my go-to meals is stuffed yellow squash. Cut them lengthwise, take out the seeds, then fill with mushrooms, diced fresh mozzarella, shredded parm, sundried tomatoes, and seasoned bread crumbs. Add a bit of olive oil on top, and bake until soft and golden on top.

They're great with an alfredo or puttanesca sauce on top. Vegetarian too, but I've seen recipes with italian sausage added in.

Though I rarely get to make it, because everytime I get them hubby wants them fried in onion batter, served with ranch dressing. Also admittedly delicious.

I love them, too. Several excellent ways of preparing them have already been posted, but I also love a good squash casserole...I've got several versions I make, most have cheese, but some use broth as a base rather than having a dairy element. One place I used to enjoy served them poached in evaporated milk.

I just saute slices of yellow squash and coarsely chopped onion in a little butter. I cook it very lightly as I don't like it mushy. Sometimes I make a cheese sauce for a topper, sprinkle on some bread crumbs, and run it under the broiler. We both love the stuff, especially when it is in season and pretty inexpensive.

Stir fried with bits of bacon in EVOO with some added bacon drippings for flavor and red onions, mushrooms, and sometime a small amount of shredded cabbage...Yummy.

Well hugepossum, you must get adventurous and use it in some Ratatouille

Saute the following, slice or chunk the vegetables
onions
yellow squash
zucchini
eggplant
green peppers
garlic
marjoram
basil
add a can of stewed tomatoes, let simmer on top of stove or stick in hot oven for 15 minutes

We like it topped with some provolone for gooey deliciousness.

If you are totally in love with the yellow squash, you can use it without
the zucchini and eggplant, but onions and tomatoes are a must

OMG...this sounds delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

I love squash in general, but find it a little bland. I am bookmarking your recipe, as I think my family would love this!
