Low-Point Stuffed Summer Squash

Light the grill, the squash is ready to go on! This is a great and easy recipe you will want to make over and over. When I made this, I only had one squash, and the only problem I found with that is it left my family wanting more! Very happy I planted lots of summer squash this spring.

Low-Point Stuffed Summer Squash
- 1 large summer squash
- 2 Tbs bread crumbs
- 2 Tbs butter, softened
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- fresh chives
Cut the ends off the squash. Cut squash in half, widthwise, and then slice each half lengthwise, leaving 4 pieces. Carefully scoop out inside, leaving the squash looking like a little hallowed out boat. Finely chop the scooped out squash and place in a bowl. Mix in bread crumbs, butter, and garlic powder. Combine well. Place spoonfuls of squash mixture back into the little squash boats. Heat grill (medium/high heat) and place squash on grill. Close lid and grill about 10 minutes. (I placed my squash on aluminum foil before placing on grill). Remove and add a few pinches of fresh chives. Enjoy! If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.
