Squash Casserole

Squash Casserole is a fantastic way to use the abundance of summer squash from your garden or Farmer’s market.

Oh my gravy! This was so good. I honestly wasn’t sure I would like it but I liked it well enough to heat up leftovers to have with toast for breakfast the next morning. I really think this will become a regular side dish at our house.

The squash casserole was easy to make and if you use frozen squash could be made year-round. Cheese, onion, and eggs are something most people keep on hand and the crackers and evaporated milk keep well in the pantry.

  1. Yum- was this good or what? I loved it and I’m laughing because I ate mine for breakfast this morning. Sounds like I wasn’t the only one eating it for breakfast (LOL).

  2. Yours looks really good! I felt the same way. I didn’t know if I would like it. But then I could not stop eating it! :0

  3. Yes, I agree. I think it is my favorite Paula recipe we’ve done so far. That’s saying a lot since there were a lot of desserts along the way.
