Cheesy Bacon Baked Squash is a delicious, gluten free, low carb side dish!
Cheesy Bacon Baked Squash is well, just what it sounds like. It is cheese and bacon smothered squash.
Now doesn’t that sound wonderful? It is! 🙂
Add some sour cream and some sliced green onions when serving and it is a amazing side dish.
This recipe is adapted from delish.com’s Loaded Zucchini Skins. The skins were just really hard and we didn’t like that at all so I made some changes. Now we think it is just right. 🙂
There is so much you can do with squash! And it is a good thing because if you have a garden, or your neighbor has a garden, or your parents have a garden. . . you get the idea.
It is wonderfully prolific stuff! And that is OK because there is so much you can do with it!
