  • 1.5 lbs yellow squash sliced thin
  • 1 large sweet onion thinly sliced
  • 3 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper


  • Add ingredients to a 12-inch skillet over medium heat.
  • Stir and cook the squash until it’s softened, about 15-20 minutes.


  • Slice the squash into evenly sized pieces so that they cook evenly.
  • Cook the dish on a medium heat. Butter has a low smoking point, so you need to be careful not to burn it.
  • Stir the squash frequently while it is cooking.
