Wendy's notes for this recipe:
I wasn't a squash fan until after I married and tried my mom-in-law's squash casserole. I've refined it a bit where now my husband and whole family loves it. Not recommended for very often as it's quite rich. But it's excellent at Thanksgiving!

Squash dishes are so frequent at my table, that my husband has been known to occasionally protest. But not so with this delicious new find! He - like the Crew - LOVED this recipe. Perfectly tender and cheesy, even hubby could be found going back for seconds....


In a heavy skillet, melt butter. Add squash, zucchini and onion; cook until crisp tender. Pour squash into a casserole dish; set aside to cool.
To the slightly cooled squash, add Cheddar cheese, salt and pepper; stir.
Mix together milk, egg yolk and flour; whisk until well blended. Pour milk mixture over squash; stir. Sprinkle with additional Cheddar cheese if desired.
Bake at 375 degrees about 45 minutes until hot and bubbly throughout.
