Grilled & Stuffed Squash Recipe @pinch

A wonderful way to grill squash in the summer. The filling can be tailored to what you have on hand. Onions and garlic add a ton of flavor while the cheese holds the filling together. This grilled summer squash cooks in the foil pouch and comes out tender. A lovely meatless option for the grill. We always have an abundance of crookneck squash each year in our garden. I started experimenting with this recipe a few years ago using other fresh vegetables from the garden ~ It is deeeelicious!

Recipe Cuisine: American Recipe Category: Vegetables Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 2 - yellow crooked neck squash
  • 1/2 stick(s) butter
  • 1 cup(s) cubed Velveeta cheese (or shredded cheddar cheese)
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 2 clove(s) garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 cup(s) diced vegetable of your choice (I use zucchini or squash)
  • - cilantro and other fresh herbs (i.e. basil, oregano, thyme)
Intructions :
  • Slice the ends off the squash and cut them down the center lengthwise so there are two halves. Scoop out the seeds making a well for the stuffing ingredients
  • Cut up and mix together all the remaining ingredients (excluding the butter) in a bowl. Salt and pepper the mixture to taste
  • Place the squash on a large piece of aluminum foil and fill the center of each squash half with the mixture. Then dot each one with butter. Sprinkle herbs and a bit of salt and pepper over the top of the squash
  • Cover loosely with foil (so the cheese doesn\u2019t stick to the foil). Place the stuffed squash on the grill for around 20-30 minutes
  • You want the squash to be cooked well and the cheese and butter melted. Serve and enjoy!
  • You can cook this dish in the oven at 425 for 35-45 mins. Or try it in the microwave - cook on high for 6 mins, let it sit for a couple of minutes, then microwave again for 6 minutes (for a dish of 4 halves).
