Easy Baked Yellow Squash

Andy Anderson !


I’m always on the lookout for interesting recipes for my catering business, and for myself, family, and friends.

I’ve got some Summer squash in the garden, and this is a perfect recipe to put together for one… or for a crowd.

The ingredients are simple, and the taste amazing… I just love the nice crunch the panko breadcrumbs impart to this dish. So yummy.

And, you know what? If you’ve got some good Summer squash… Autumn can’t be very far away.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
