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

  • 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.

    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!!
