Sautéed Chayote in butter with sugar and cinnamon

What in the heck is a Chayote …?    Many of us were asking that question recently when we picked up our Saturday Bountiful Baskets.   Well, per the Wikipedia, it is a squash of some sort.   I used two of mine in a Weight Watchers soup and the other one I sliced like an apple and sautéed in butter with sugar and cinnamon – just like you would make fried apples.    It turned out really good.   We used it as a topping over coconut rice.    I only have pictures of the process because the finished dish was gobbled up before I could take a picture of it.    Try this process next time you find yourself pondering what to do with a Chayote...


1 Chayote
1 or more Tablespoons of butter for frying pan
1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

Wash and thinly slice Chayote – set aside.

Melt butter in frying pan over medium high heat and add the Chayote slices.   Toss as if stir-frying.

Add the sugar and cinnamon and continue to toss until tender.

Serve over ice cream, cake, oatmeal or just eat it warm and gooey as a standalone.
