MEDYAS - Aromatic Filled Squash
"Sephardic Jews in Israel have come from many lands, although their place of origin was Spain.
From each country of their sojourn, they took on local nuances of cooking. Thus the summer squash (zucchini, vegetable marrow), which was even a Biblical favorite, takes on many different flavors."
Cut the squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Moisten the bread and squeeze dry. Mix the bread with the meat and add spice and seasoning. Put the mixture into the hollowed-out squash. Dip the filled marrows first in flour and then in the diluted egg. Fry the squash on the meat side only. Put into a shallow casserole and sprinkle with the lemon juice and sugar. Just cover with water. Cook gently until squashes are tender and most of the sauce is absorbed
(35 to 40 minutes).
Serves 4 to 6 [[Spike would use lemon pepper for the seasoning.]]
