This is a recipe that I came up with because I liked Luby's Cafeteria's squash casserole. I've made many variations of it over the years and my family has loved all of them. I will list the variations at the end of the recipe. I was a finalist in the Port Arthur News recipe contest with this recipe many years ago and most recently I was one of the final 4 in the KFDM.com 's You made It We ate It contest.

How to Make Bacon and Squash Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Steam squash and green onions until tender. Fry or bake bacon until crisp, crumble.
  2. In large bowl add squash, onion, bacon, soup, 3/4 bag fritos and 1 cup cheese. Season to taste.
  3. spray 9 x 13 casserole dish with cooking spray. Pour squash mixture into dish. top with remaining fritos.
  4. Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes until casserole is bubbly. Top with remaining cheese , cover with foil and bake an additional 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
  5. Variations:
    Add 2 cups diced chicken or turkey
    Use cream of chicken soup instead of cream of mushroom
    Use cream of celery soup instead of cream of mushroom and add 1 tsp (or more to taste) poultry seasoning.
    Add 1/2 c dried cranberries.
    To use as a stuffing for your turkey add all of the fritos and stuff your turkey.
    I usually use the hickory smoked bacon but you can use cherrywood smoked, applewood smoked, maple, bourbon or whatever is your favorite flavor of thick sliced bacon.
    You can use regular fritos, ranch fritos or chili cheese fritos.
    this is a very versatile recipe. feel free to customize it to what your family likes.
