Squash Casserole from Weaver D's

Photo: Oxmoor House
Yield Makes 12 servings
Creamy and simple, this tastes like the sort grandmama used to make.


  • 4 pounds yellow squash, cut into 1/4-inch slices (14 cups sliced)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cups diced white onion
  • 2/3 cup cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup soft, fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cook squash in boiling water to cover 8 minutes or until tender. Drain well, and press gently between paper towels to remove excess moisture.

  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add onion, and sauté 3 to 5 minutes or until tender.

  3. Stir together onion mixture, soup, and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in squash and breadcrumbs. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese, and bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
