Yellow Squash Casserole


Years ago (like maybe 35?) I had a yellow squash side dish at a chain restaurant called “Dixie House” that was out of this world. It tasted like it was only yellow cheese, squash and soda crackers, but putting that together in a pan and baking it at home did NOT produce the same (or even similar) result!

Somehow that restaurant managed to make the dish crunchy and creamy and heavenly. Am guessing it is a southern specialty, but have never seen it quite like that one. Managed to sneak a peak at an unbaked pan of the casserole and it LOOKED like it was only slices of the squash with shredded cheese and crackers, too!

    Ooops so sorry – I forgot to get the rest of the directions:

    Preheat oven to 350 F.

    Rinse and trim ends of squash. Cut squash into 2-inch pieces. Place in boiling, salted water until just tender, about 10 minutes. Drain in colander; mash to remove remaining liquid. Drain for 10 minutes.

    Saute fresh onions until soft, about 5 minutes. Combine drained, mashed squash, onions,
    melted butter, 1/2 of the bread crumbs, sugar, salt, beaten eggs and pepper.

    Pour into lightly greased 1 1/2 quart casserole dish. Top with remaining 1/2 cup bread crumbs. Bake, covered with foil, 20-30 minutes until set, then remove cover and bake until crumbs are golden about 10 minutes more.

    Must still wait a bit, but will try BOTH of these recipes, or at least get some squash prepped and frozen to bake it when it feels right to once again turn on the oven!

    Thank you both so much!
