Grilled or Broiled Scallop Squash
I planted almost a full bed (4' x 12') of scallop (or patty pan) squash this summer and I'm getting lots of them. I take them to the market and frequently am asked how I prepare my scallop squash. Here is my answer: Wash several small scallop squashes. Cut them lengthwise so you end up with 2 circles. Drizzle on a little olive oil (or your favorite oil). Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, pepper, oregano and/or other herbs. Wrap in foil and grill for about 3 to 5 minutes. Or place on a broiling pan and broil until softened - maximum of 5 to 10 minutes but it may take less time if the scallop squashes are young and tender. Enjoy!
