I had some extra summer squash or good ol yellow squash around and wanted to incorporate it into a hearty dinner somehow. Usually I would just saute it and serve it on the side, but I have done that too many times and it is sort of boring. This was a quick and easy way to use something as simple as squash in a new and tasty way.
This is usually what I would do with yellow squash and call it at that, saute with onion, oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Once the squash started to soften, I added diced raw bacon.
Stir the bacon in and cook until about half way done. Then add cubed or shredded bread and about a cup or so of chicken broth. The bread should be moist, but not overly soggy so start with less chicken broth and add more as needed.
And a bit more mixed and moistened.
Then pour into a casserole dish and bake at the magical temperature of 350 for about 20 minutes. I like a bit of a crust on top, so keep an eye on it to cook to your liking.
