No one can replace a classic Southern dish like this Squash Casserole. It’s healthy, creamy, and unquestionably delicious. And it’s the easiest recipe. It is made with fresh yellow squash, gooey cheese, and eggs that are covered with buttery crumbs of crackers on top. I normally serve this during Thanksgiving or dinner parties but since my kids love this so much, it became part of our weekly meal. Plus my Mom loves squash so much she always brings me like 3 or 5 pieces of squash during weekends, so yes I have so much squash just sitting in the kitchen. I like that it is healthy especially that I have kids because I want them to get used to eating veggies. We know the kids now, they prefer junk foods and take-outs, good thing it’s different with my kids.
2 lbs of yellow squash
½ large onion
1 sleeve Ritz crackers
1 cup of cheddar cheese
¾ cup of milk
½ cup of melted butter
Salt and pepper
