Bacon and Zucchini Stir Fry

I really love G's mom. She is the sweetest lady and a fantastic cook still and she is in her 80's. She puts so much love in her food and has for years. This is one of the things she taught me to cook. It is one of my favorites to cook for the kids. Aside from the bacon it is so healthy. HA... but the bacon is what makes it so good. Dang! There are no exact measurements on it either so anything goes. My kind of recipe... and often why blogging is hard for me... I just throw things together a lot with no attention to how much I put in of an ingredient. Anyhow... enjoy... so good... and the veggies are so abundant during the summer months.

Bacon and Zucchini Stirfry:

6 to 8 slices of bacon cut into pieces
1 tsp minced fresh garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1 large onion
10 mushrooms
3 zucchini
1 yellow squash
fresh diced tomatoes

Place the bacon, garlic and onion in the pan to cook. I like to cook it well enough to be edible at that point but still limp.

I then add the zucchini, yellow squash, and mushrooms. My squash is cut in medium size medallions as if they are too thin they will get soggy and not so good for my taste buds. If too thin, the mushrooms will overcook while you wait for the squash to finish. No good either... Stir fry this until desired doneness of he squash, while adding salt and pepper to taste. Turn heat completely off at this point and add add the fresh tomatoes. Serve. This is a great dish.


  1. Yum- that sounds great! We LOVE cooking so we'll have to try this!
    Found your blog from Theta Mom. I'm at

  2. I found your blog on blogfrog...
    I cannot wait for my garden to produce zucchini, tomatoes and squash so I can make this. All it needs is bread and butter to be a light summer meal. Thanks for a great idea!!

  3. Oh Yum! Im definately going to try this. Amazingly, its actually the few veggies my kids WILL eat... so this is a definite keeper.
