Summer Squash & Rice Boat Recipe @pinch

Looking for a new way to cook summer squash? Try these squash boats. Onions caramelize in bacon drippings and are combined with rice, squash, and crumbled bacon for the filling. When baked with a pat of butter, these are savory and delicious. Serve as a very hearty summer side dish or a main meal. My mom made this recipe for summer dinners when we had guests and they were amazed. The flavor was great with the rice, bacon, onion, and squash; nothing goes to waste because you eat the boat. A great meal!
