Ground Beef and Squash Skillet

A quick and easy skillet meal made with ground beef, fresh tomatoes, rice and summer squash and finished with shredded cheese.

Ground Beef and Squash Skillet


Y'all probably already know that I am into skillet meals. They're quicker than their more involved counterparts - like my skillet jambalayagumbolayaskillet lasagna or ziti, and great for busy weeknights.

Like a lot of you, I also love summer squash, but mostly it gets pushed into being either a snack or a side, rather than a featured dish. This version makes it more main dish with the addition of ground beef and rice, though it's really a very versatile dish. Well drained canned or thawed frozen mixed vegetables or corn may also be added to expand it even further.

While I know we're heading out of summer, I have sure been enjoying my air fryer in this summer heat!

It was an appliance I didn't really think I needed, so I was on the fence about getting one for quite awhile, but I sure am glad that I finally took the plunge. I literally use mine in some way almost every day, though I would say that if you are going to go beyond snack foods, french fries and frozen convenience foods, go for a larger oven style.

I actually adapted this recipe from one of my older Southern Living recipe books from a long time back, just in case somebody wants to give me some guff for posting an Asian recipe... because someone will.

Hey, the reality is that Southerners eat Asian food too! We love it actually, and, in fact, one of my favorites is Chap Chae, a dish my Korean neighbor used to share with me when she made it. We've got some pretty good pho around here too, thanks to our Vietnamese population.

Fried Green Tomato Nuggets

Classic cornmeal-coated fried green tomatoes with a twist! Instead of slices, these are cut into chunks but breaded the same way, creating bite-sized fried green tomato nuggets with more of that surface crunch we love.

First, a little housekeeping nugget before we move on to the recipe!
