I love yellow squash, of any kind. My mother used to make it for me and I just fell in love with that vegetable. Wish my own children liked it as well as me, so once in a while I will make one for me. I gave up trying to get them to try it, they will like it!!! It didn't work.. all the more for me!

How to Make Kathyjo's Baked Banana Squash

Step-by-Step

  1. Take your pieces of squash and wash them. Place in sprayed pan with the inside facing up. With fork, make small punctures over the inside of squash
  2. Melt butter and brush it over the squash flesh, and sprinkle the cinnamon over the butter.
  3. Place in oven at 350 degrees and bake, for about 40 minutes. Baste it several times with more butter.
  4. Test the squash with a fork or knife inserted and if it goes through and is all soft, then it is done. The outside layer of squash will be soft too. If not, bake a few more minutes until it is. I like mine to just begin to get a nice crust on the top.
  5. Take out of oven and let it cool a bit. It has a nice sweet flavor to it and the butter with cinnamon just makes it better. Delicious!!
