How To Make squash casserole

  • 1
    Place 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.
  • 2
    Place 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.
