Pattypan Squash on the Grill

I've cooked patty pan squash many times, but I don't ever remember doing it on the grill.  However, Doc Brilliant and I spent a fun afternoon at the Farmer's Market on Saturday afternoon, and we came home with some wonderful summer bounty.  We decided to have just a veggie meal, and we wondered if we might be able to grill the squash as we have done with other squashes, like zucchini.  Sure enough, one of the Internet recipe sites had many recipes for grilled patty pan squash.

So, I poured a little olive oil into a bowl and added salt.  The Doc brushed the oil onto the squash and grilled it.  When it came off the grill, we threw some shredded cheese on top.  We took the picture before the cheese had time to melt from the heat of the freshly cooked squash, but when it did melt, it looked lovely.  It tasted wonderful, as well.

I'm sorry the plate was hanging off the edge of the table in the picture, but it had to share with a number of other dishes.  It all went well with the Amish cracked wheat bread that we also bought at the Market.

Ooh, great idea! Our squash plants are about to be overloaded with squash and I was worried we'd run out of ideas on how to cook them. Thanks for sharing!
