Citrus Glazed Banana Squash

Citrus Glazed Banana Squash


"If you are not familiar with banana squash, this is a great 'first-timer' recipe to try. Cubed squash is simmered, then glazed in a simple citrus sauce. It is basically foolproof and everyone will love it! Even my kids ate it up. This serves well with chicken, pork and fish."

  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add squash cubes and water. Cover, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until squash is tender. Stir occasionally, and add more water if necessary to prevent squash from sticking to the pan.

This recipe was very easy and tasty. I admit I was expecting/fearing it would be very sweet, but it was perfect - a nice blend of sweet and savory. I didn't have cloves, but it came out fine.

This has excellent flavor. A great fall side dish that is really good served with rice and fried chicken.

great taste. Very easy to cook, even for a beginner like me. Squash did take longer to cook than the 5 minutes. Maybe my cubes were too big..

SO GOOD! I will definitely be making this again.

Having never eaten Banana Squash before this was a great first recipe. Very easy and quick to make. It was delicious!!!
