Jan's Summer Squash Caserole

Jan Taylor


As a vegetarian I am always looking for ways to get more protein into my daily diet.
As an avid gardner,I'm always looking for different ways to use the beautiful straight necked Summer squash I grow. I don't do a lot of fried cooking and the general run of squash casseroles are usually low in protein.
When my neighbor's hens started laying more eggs than they could use, she began giving me fresh eggs weekly.
After preparing and freezing squash till my eyes almost crossed I decided to throw together this casserole,just using what I had on hand.
Yummy,comfort food type side dish!
