Helen's Baked Yellow Squash

Erin McGowen


This is my Great Aunt Helen's famous Baked Yellow Squash. While I have never personally had this dish, everyone in my family raves about how good it is. It's one of my Papa's favorite dishes ever! I plan to make it soon, and will update with a picture as soon as I do. Or if you have made this, feel free to add your own pictures!

Hope you enjoy!
