Ingredients

  • 3 pounds yellow squash, sliced
  • 5 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
  • 1 small onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 20 round buttery crackers, crushed (about 3/4 cup)

Preparation

  1. Cook squash in boiling water to cover in a large skillet 8 to 10 minutes or just until tender. Drain well; gently press between paper towels.
  2. Melt 4 tablespoons butter in skillet over medium-high heat; add onion, and sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Remove skillet from heat; stir in squash, cheese, and next 4 ingredients. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 11- x 7-inch baking dish.
  3. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Stir together melted butter and crushed crackers; sprinkle evenly over top of casserole.
  4. Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes or until set.
  5. Note: To lighten, reduce butter to 3 tablespoons, using 2 tablespoons to sauté onion. Substitute 1/2 cup egg substitute for eggs and low-fat versions of mayonnaise, cheese, and crackers. Proceed as directed.
