Why limit French fried onions to green bean casserole?  We love them on this cheesy squash casserole, too.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Cook yellow squash and sweet onion in boiling water to cover in a Dutch oven 8 minutes or just until vegetables are tender; drain squash mixture well.

Step 2

Combine squash mixture, freshly shredded Cheddar cheese, next 5 ingredients, 1 cup breadcrumbs, and 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Spoon into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish.

Step 3

Stir together melted butter, French fried onions, and remaining 1 cup breadcrumbs and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle over squash mixture.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes or until set.

Made this for Christmas 2012 and it was a huge hit! I sauteed the squash and onion with parsley, basil, and butter in a large skillet. Like another user, I also substituted the 1 cup mayo for 1/2 cup mayo and 1/2 cup sour cream. I also sprinkled crumbled ritz crackers on top. I found that it needed to cook at least 45 minutes. It was very good, I will definitely be making it again!

So good

There is another recipe using this picture, but the ingredients are much different (and awful) in my opinion. Make sure you get the right one! This is the only recipe I've seen that uses basil, fried onions, and parmesan. It's amazing!

If a receipe has more than one "chlosterol" or "fat" in it I don't use it. This is the first time looking at cooking light on line and I am suprised at the squash casserole. It probably is very good with all of those good ingredients. But....
