Default Whose got some tasty crookneck squash recipes>>>?

I've got 2 so far that I'd like to use for dinner tomorrow night with more on the way. I poked around online and found this blog that's got some nice recipes listed out for kids, Yellow Crookneck Squash Recipes. I'm liking the casserole recipe the best but the chips recipe looks good too.

  • 4 Yellow Crookneck Squash, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium Sweet Onion (Vidalia's the best) , thinly sliced

  • 1/4 cup White Wine
  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream
  • 1/4 stick Unsalted Butter
  • 2/3 cup grated Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 2-4 Tablespoons Italian bread crumbs
  • Sea salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Italian seasoning

Steps:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray rectangular baking dish with cooking spray.
  3. Layer thinly sliced veggies in the baking dish.
  4. Pour milk and white wine over vegetables.
  5. Salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Sprinkle Italian seasoning on top.
  7. Dollop sour cream over vegetables.
  8. Dot vegetables with butter.
  9. Sprinkle Italian bread crumbs on top to cover dish.
  10. Sprinkle cheese over top.
  11. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  12. Remove from oven and let stand five minutes.
Serves 6

Had to look up what a jicama was from one of the recipes at that last site, What Is Jicama?. Here's a photo if anyone's interested, http://www.juicingbook.com/_images/jicama.jpg. I don't think I've ever eaten any of those before and I don't think I've ever seen those for sale before either so I guess that recipe's out.

Here's another site that had another decent looking crookneck recipe, http://www.cooks.com/rec/search/0,1-0,crookneck_squash,FF.html. This casserole recipe looked interesting at that site,

2 eggs
1 1/2 c. crushed Ritz crackers
1/2 c. milk

Jicama is a root vegetable that has a sweeter taste than potatoes and is good julienned and eaten raw. I see it in stores all the time here but I think that is because it is popular in the hispanic community. Mexican food is very popular here in Chicago.

All my summer food is cooked so simply. Not many ingredients.
Winter squash on the other hand goes into more complex stews and soups and casseroles. These sound good, let us know how they turn out.

I shop for almost all of my veggies at Mexican markets!!! Mexican markets have fresher produce out my way. I bet I'm walking right by it not knowing what it is or assuming it's something else!!! I'm gonna have to ask for it specifically next week.
