Sauteed Squash with Bacon

Squash and Bacon Recipe

This is a super simple side dish that is everyone’s favorite, and only 3 ingredients!! And one of them is bacon! Sauteed Squash with Bacon.

Bacon goes so well with veggies doesn’t it lol.  That seems to be a theme at my house, take a super healthy veggie and throw some bacon on it lol.

This recipe is quick, it is easy and it is a great way to serve that squash you picked up at the farmer’s market.

The color of the squash is gorgeous and it cooks down nice and tender with the caramelized onions and at the end you top it with the crispy crumbled bacon for a perfect combo.
