Recipe For Southern Style Yellow Squash


For our Sunday dinner, I made a cheater beef bbq in my oven and served it with baked beans and Southern Style Yellow Squash. I think it’s the cooking in bacon drippings that makes this dish southern. Boy oh boy was this ever the way to make squash! We thought it was so much more tasty than normal. Of course, cooking in bacon drippings isn’t the healthiest, so this won’t be my everyday way of making squash, but for special ~ this is it!.
