3 lbs. yellow summer squash
1/2 cup onions, chopped
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease baking dish. Wash and cut unpeeled squash. Boil or steam until tender, drain thoroughly, then mash with fork.
Add all ingredients except 1/4 cup butter and breadcrumbs to the squash. Stir to combine and pour into greased baking dish. Spread remaining melted butter on top and sprinkle with bread crumbs.
Bake for one hour or until top is browned.
This is a spreadable butter that we always love to eat at the Lazy Bee. This butter is good for tabletop use and stovetop cooking.
2 cups butter (4 sticks, or 1 lb)
1 3/4 cup safflower oil
2 to 3 Tbsp dry powdered milk
2 to 3 Tbsp wheat germ
6 Tbsp lecithin
Beat butter in a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and beat until the butter is thoroughly combined with the oil. Pour into crock or mason jar and refrigerate until hardened.
8 medium potatoes
1 large onion
1 Tbsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup flour
Crisco or vegetable oil for frying
Peel potatoes - it's okay to leave a little skin on. Into a large bowl, coarsely grate potatoes and peeled onion.
Begin heating Crisco or oil in large frying pan on stove.
Separate eggs, dropping yolks into bowl with shredded potatoes. In small bowl, whip egg whites until stiff. Fold egg whites into potato bowl and season with salt, pepper, and garlic.
Add just enough flour to soak up water from potatoes. Drop batter into the hot oil of the frying pan and fry until both sides are browned.
Serve warm with applesauce.
This recipe is from Bud & JoAnn's kitchen. The leftovers can be frozen.
Vegetable oil for frying
6 corn tortillas
1 can refried beans
2 cups grated cheese (Monterrey Jack or Cheddar)
2 cups shredded lettuce
Heat vegetable oil in small frying pan. When hot, add tortillas one at a time to crisp, flipping once. Place fried tortillas on paper towel-lined plate and put in oven to keep warm.
Heat beans in small pot and spread evenly over each tortilla. Cover with grated cheese and place back in oven to melt cheese.
As cheese is melting, fry eggs to taste. Place an egg on each tortilla and serve with salsa (if desired) and shredded lettuce on top.
