  • 2 c
    grated yellow squash
  • 3/4 lb
    velveeta cheese
  • 1 Tbsp
    dried minced onion

    butter, melted

    italian seasoning
  • 1/3 tsp
    garlic powder



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter 9 x 12 baking dish.
  2. Cut cheese into half-inch cubes and melt. I use my microwave for melting - 30 seconds on high, then stir. Repeat until melted throughout.
  3. Add melted cheese to grated squash and mix well.
  4. Add dried onion flakes, melted butter, cracker crumbs, and beaten eggs. Mix well.
  5. Season to taste with remaining ingredients, except grated Cheddar cheese.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and top with 1/2 to 1 cup grated Cheddar. Return to oven for 5 to 10 minutes, just until cheese is melted.
    Serve warm, or allow to cool and cut into squares to serve.
