It really is true. You reap what you sow. Ask any gardener! ;-) We have gobs of summer squash right now. While we do batter dip and deep fry it quite a bit, this is another recipe we enjoy!
Summer Squash Casserole
3 - 4 medium squash
1 medium tomato
1/2 cup butter
1 cup water
1/2 cup grits or corn meal
2 pieces cooked bacon, crumbled
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1- 2 inch sprig of thyme (just strip the leaves and toss the stem)
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
Place the water, butter and grits in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for one minute. Stir, then let rest while prepping everything else.
Either grate or finely chop the squash. I use the smaller grate on my Vidalia Chop Wizard. Coarsely chop the tomato. I use the larger grate on the Chop Wizard.
Stir all ingredients in a bowl then pour into a greased casserole dish.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes.
Mmmm... Summer vegetables! ;-) -Marci
