Bake it~

One of favorite ways to eat squash is just cooked with sweet onions in a little butter. We call it squishy squash. Bill will tell you that I could eat this every day. He is not as excited about my good deal on a bushel of squash as I am.

We also love a good squash casserole. This is an easy recipe that can be made ahead and frozen.

Squash Casserole
3 cups squash
1 sweet onion
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 cup crushed saltines
1/2 cup ranch dressing
3 eggs
Salt and pepper to taste

Saute squash and onions until tender. Allow to cool. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Beat in eggs last. Pour into a 9x13 baking dish. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

You can bet I have a couple of casseroles in my freezer right now.
Y'all enjoy!

Hi there! My Mom and Aunt left this morning so I'm having fun catching up with everyone...finally! I'm hungry now that I've seen all your posts I've missed. I love squash. I love to just boil it with some onions until fork tender and then I drain them and add some pepper and butter. I can even eat it for breakfast if I sprinkle some shredded cheese on it while it's hot. Oh yum!

You are not going to believe this I just blanched some squash for my freezer. I too like to eat it the same way you do. I too could eat it everyday in the summer. My husband does not loke it at all. I am copying your recipe and will make it for dinner next week....Mary

I love summer squash just fried in a little butter, salt and pepper.

I have never had a casserole from this squash. Yours looks and sounds wonderful. I am going to copy the recipe so when my Dad gives me some squash, I can try it out.

Thanks for sharing.
