Squash and Bacon side dish for the holiday

squash bacon onion vegetable side dish

The holiday season is here!  Our family will have a fried turkey and most likely a baked one too along with my Grandmother’s cornbread dressing.  Today... I'm sharing this great side dish using Zucchini & Yellow Squash and of course...bacon!

I’ve been thinking of ways to make a carb friendly side dish for this year.  Tonight’s test is a winner and may end up on the menu.  I am a big fan of squash of all types and of course bacon makes everything better.  Please let me know if you try the recipe and what changes you made that I can consider.  As it is written, it is pretty tasty, but I love hearing of additional ways to make a dish, so please-share!
