Summer Squash Casserole

Here's a favorite easy recipe for a summer side dish. We had it tonight with our grilled chicken, so thought I'd share.
It would make a wonderful vegetarian main dish.
It's so tasty!!!
  • 4 cups sliced summer squash, any combo, sliced in 1/2 in cubes.
  • 1/2 cup fine chopped onion
  • 35 Ritz crackers, crushed
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
In a buttered 9x13 pan, combine squash and onion. In a baggie, crush the crackers and combine with the grated cheese. Mix the eggs with the milk, melted butter, S&P. Pour over the squash and mix in 1/2 the cracker/cheese mix. Top the whole thing with remaining cracker/cheese mix and dot with butter. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes till golden and bubbling.

And I just passed up the organic zukes and yellow squash at farm stands on the way home from the Delaware shore thinking I had no inspiration for it.

I'm glad I should be able to get something local, tho.

Thanks, K-l.

I make something similar with mandolin sliced rounds (Karen actually does the slicing, I always seem to get bit). No cheese, but I might just give that a whirl. Now you have me hashing (no Bucky, not that kind) a spiralized casserole around in my mind.

Haven't told Craig yet, but spiralized would be too thin. His brother loved the squash casserole and I made it for him once when I was taking care of him slicing the squash by hand, as he didn't have a mandolin. Found a hand held one and used it to make another 1 later on, but it wasn't adjustable so slices were paper thin. Don't know why, but that changed the taste and it wasn't nearly as good. Slices have to at least be 1/4 inch thick.

Now I know what to do with the monster yellow squash I found in the garden.
