Yellow Squash Casserole

November 11, 2013Teresa

We first tasted this delicious Yellow Squash Casserole a few weeks ago when one of the couples we invited over for dinner brought it. It was so, so mouthwatering I asked for and promptly received the recipe! Now I have plenty of squash recipes, but this one had a different twist in many ways and it was just so incredibly tasty that I knew I needed to add it to my repertoire of squash casseroles.

Yellow Squash Casserole calls for mashing the yellow squash after cooking it and then adding butter, eggs, green onions, Italian-style bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese , salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Then after placing all of that mixture in your casserole dish you drizzle more butter over top, add more bread crumbs, and then sprinkle the top surface with additional Parmesan cheese. Oh, my. The flavors are marvelous as you will attest to if you try this recipe for yourself!

We had a huge gathering of church folks at our Minister of Worship’s home out in the country yesterday and I brought this casserole along with several others. They have a huge spread with a lot of land so it’s really conducive to having a lot of people over. Plus, his wife, Angie, does a lot of catering so she is used to all that goes into putting on one of these shindigs.

Even though there were several hundred people that showed up for the festivities, we didn’t run out of food! There was barbecued brisket, chicken, and sausage along with every kind of side dish imaginable plus a whole mess of cookies! Yum. I am so glad Corey shared this great recipe with me, and I was really glad to make up a big batch of this for our barbecue yesterday so others could enjoy it too. I did manage to save out a small bowl to snap a few pictures so you could see how scrumptious this lovely casserole looks.

If you’re looking for a dynamite squash casserole to make for the holidays then I highly recommend this one. It is fantastic with great taste and texture. It’s a great way to sneak veggies into your kid’s portions too! I like the fact that this casserole is savory rather than sweet. You can only eat so many dishes with sugar (and then there’s no room for pie or dessert!!!)  🙁  So give this easy, Yellow Squash Casserole recipe a try. Your family is sure to enjoy it too.

Here’s a look at the interior of the casserole so you can see how rich and gooey it is! When Corey brought this to our house a few weeks ago, I seem to recall the casserole being cleaned out. She didn’t have a lot of leftovers even though there was so much food spread out on our island to eat.

Here’s what I did.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: Corey doesn’t like onions so she always substituted 1 tbsp. dehydrated onions for the onions in the recipe. Although I prefer to use fresh onions of any kind.

NOTE: 4C brand makes gluten free bread crumbs and Italian style gluten free bread crumbs. I purchase them at Walmart.
