Blackstone Zucchini and Yellow Squash

Our Blackstone Zucchini and Yellow Squash are simple to make and you’re going to want to put this herb blend on EVERYTHING. Fire up the griddle and let’s make a simple, healthy side dish on our Blackstone!

Blackstone Zucchini and Yellow Squash

We use our griddle to cook almost everything, but sometimes for side dishes, I tend to default to steamed bagged frozen vegetables (not ideal), and I ALWAYS struggle to find good ways to eat zucchini.

Not anymore!

The crinkle cuts make the texture much more interesting and provide some great opportunities for browning on the surface of the griddle if you can be patient enough before that first flip.

How to make Blackstone Zucchini

This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.


Wash and slice

The crinkle-cut knife is one of my favorite “limited use” items that we own. Get one. Use it, and love it.


Preheat your griddle

Medium heat is good. Low-medium is probably better.


Oil and cook

Spread the oil out over the griddle and layout the zucchini and yellow squash rounds in a single layer.


Cook and season

Sprinkle the salt, pepper, and moss. Cook for 3 minutes


Flip, cover, and butter

Flip your zucchini and cook for another minute or two, then pile them up in a mound, make a hole in the center, and put your butter down. Immediately cover with a dome and cook for one minute. Enjoy!

Do these keep well?

I don’t personally enjoy leftover vegetables all that much, but that’s just a personal preference. When you reheat it, I recommend an oven or air fryer.

Can you substitute other kinds of rubs?

Absolutely! I prefer herby rubs along with generous amounts of salt and pepper, myself, but a more traditional bbq rub would work also!

Our easy Blackstone Zucchini and Yellow Squash are sliced, seasoned, and sauteed right on the gas griddle for a side dish that is perfect next to almost any main.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 4 tablespoons avocado oil (or vegetable/olive oil also works)
  • 2 small zucchini, sliced
  • 1 small yellow squash, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Sasquatch BBQ Moss (or your favorite herby blend)
  • 1 teaspoon flaky salt (or regular salt totally works here, just reduce to about 1/2 teaspoon if you use table salt)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. Preheat your griddle over medium heat for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Wash and slice the vegetables into rounds about 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Spread half the oil over your cooking surface.
  4. Put the vegetables down in a single layer, and let them cook for 2-3 minutes. Flip them over with the spatula, season with the salt, pepper, and Sasquatch Moss. Let them cook for another minute or two. Gather the zucchini up in a pile that will fit under your melting dome, make a hole in the center and toss the butter down into the hole you made. Immediately cover and let cook for one minute.
  5. Remove to a platter for serving. Sprinkle with a little additional Moss, if desired.
