How To Make superb squash casserole

  • 1
    Preheat your oven to 350°. Spray a medium casserole dish with vegetable nonstick cooking spray.

    Slice the squashes into lengthwise quarters, then slice crosswise. Place the squashes and carrots in a saucepan, cover with water, and salt well. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and cover. Cook for about 20 minutes, until the vegetables are very soft.

    Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, melt 3 TB of the butter over medium-low heat. Stir in the onion and cook slowly until very tender and translucent, 6-8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute or so. Place the mixture into a mixing bowl.

    Wipe out the skillet with a paper towel and return it to medium-low heat. Add the remaining tablespoon butter; melt. Stir in 1/2 cup of the cracker crumbs and cook for a minute or so, until crumbs are golden brown.

    Drain the squash mixture. Mash vegetables slightly with a fork or potato masher. Spoon the squash into the mixing bowl with the onions. Stir in the rest of the uncooked cracker crumbs, the cheese and a dash or two of Tabasco. Salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the eggs and spoon the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Scatter the toasted crumbs over the top.
