Squash Casserole

Janet Crow


I stumbled across this recipe that was in a recipe file my Mama gave me. It was my Aunts and when I read it I just had to try it. Turned out fantastic...not a drop left.

4 large
yellow squash, washed and sliced
1/4 c
finely chopped onion
1/2 stick
butter, melted
1 large
egg, beaten
2 Tbsp
white sugar
good pinch of salt and pepper
1/2 c
dry bread crumbs, plus a little more for topping
1/2 c
shredded cheddar cheese


1Place the sliced squash in a pot and cover with water, bring to a boil and cook till tender (about 10 minutes). Drain the squash in a colander and using a wooden spoon press as much of the water out as you can.
2Place the squash in a mixing bowl and use a pastry blender or fork and mash the squash a little to break if apart. Add the remaining ingredients. Stir to combine well. Pour into a lightly buttered 8" baking dish (I used my 8" iron skillet). Sprinkle the top with a little of the bread crumbs and place in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
