Yellow Squash Casserole

28 Feb

 

When I came across this recipe, it sounded good, but it really is delicious!  It has a buttery, cheesy taste, which blends nicely with the squash.  I used Ritz crackers for this, but you could probably use bread crumbs or crushed cornflakes in their place.  I was also tempted to add some oregano to this, but I got busy making it and forgot to add it in.

 

Yellow Squash Casserole
Based on recipe here

What you need:

1/4 cup butter
4 cups sliced yellow squash
1/2 cup chopped onion
Salt and pepper to taste (and 1 tsp oregano if desired)
35 round buttery crackers, crushed (about 1 1/2 cups if you decide to substitute in something else)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk

How to make it:

Preheat oven to 400 F.

In a large skillet, melt butter.  Add onion and squash.  Cover, and cook until both are tender, about 5-10 minutes.  Stir in salt and pepper.  Remove from heat.

Mix together crushed crackers and shredded cheddar cheese.  Divide mixture in half.  Stir in one half with the squash mixture.

In a small bowl, beat eggs and milk together.  Pour over the squash mixture and stir.

Grease an 8×8 baking dish.  Pour in the squash mixture.  Top with the remaining half of the cracker and cheese mixture.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until casserole is bubbly and the crackers are lightly browned.
