Squished Squash

This one is an old family favorite.  I call it "Squished Squash."  It's sort of salty and smoky flavored.

First fry three slices of bacon in your black, cast-iron skillet.

When the bacon is done, take it out and crumble it up.  Leave the bacon grease in the pan and add some chopped up squash and onions. The picture shows the size of the chunks. Fill the pan as this will cook down.
Cook this on medium heat, stirring every couple of minutes, until it starts to brown.  The caramalization of the squash and onions is what makes this recipe so tasty.  Then toss in your bacon pieces and add about a half a cup of water.  Cover and simmer until it looks like this.

At this point, you can uncover and stir and cook until it is as squished up as you like.  My family loves squash cooked this way and I hope you will, too.
