Cheesy Squash Casserole

thumbnailsquash

Now if you’re not a big fan of squash, this dish might not sound appetizing at first, but stay with me! I brought this dish into a work potluck last week and the casserole was gone within 15 minutes. Think of a baked mac and cheese, replaced with squash in a crunchy buttery goodness. Hungry yet? It’s really easy to make and perfect to have as a side dish or as your main meal, especially for the upcoming holidays.

Total time: 45 mins

Ingredients:

4 – Yellow Squash, sliced and boiled

1 – Yellow Onion, diced

30-35 – Original Low Sodium Ritz or Gluten Free Crackers for Gluten-sensitive 

2 – Eggs, beaten

1/2 – Cup milk

2 – Cups Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese

3 – Tablespoons of melted butter

1 – Teaspoon Salt

1 – Teaspoon Black Pepper

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Dice your onions. Wash and thinly slice your squash into circles. I like to make them as thin as possible by using a Mandolin Slicer.

3. Place the squash and onion into a pot of water with a dash of salt and bring to a boil for 10 minutes.

4. While those cook it’s time to start having some fun with the crackers. Place your crackers in a tightly sealed ziplock bag.

Get out your meat tenderizer or rolling pin and start beating!

5. Mix the cheese with the cracker crumbs in the same bag and set aside.

6. In a mixing bowl add:

  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 Tablespoons melted butter
  • Two-thirds of the cheese and cracker mixture
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Teaspoon black pepper
  • The drained squash & onions

7. Once this is mixed well, transfer contents to a casserole baking dish, add the remaining cheese & cracker mixture to the top of the casserole to form the crust.

* To make this Gluten-Free use GF Crackers of your choice just make sure they’re slightly buttery. Glutino is not recommended the dish turns out too dry and falls apart.
