Baked Squash Casserole
Thanksgiving is such a wonderful holiday. Beyond cooking and eating it requires you to be thankful and that is a GOOD thing! I love preparing the hearty food and the smells it brings to my kitchen. If you have followed my blog you know that I prepare well in advance for Thanksgiving. The baked squash you see above is one of my all time favorites and so easy to prepare. Give this a try. Your family won't be disappointed!
Baked Squash Casserole - Preheat oven to 350 degrees
6 medium yellow squash, sliced in rounds
2 teaspoons salt
1 stick unsalted butter
4 ounces cheddar cheese
8 ounces sour cream
1/2 white onion, chopped and cooked until translucent
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup bread crumbs (I like the seasoned type)
Place squash and salt in a pan. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for about 15 minutes or until tender. Drain squash and return to pan. Add 1/2 stick butter, cheddar cheese, sour cream, sauteed onions and Parmesan cheese. Combine and pour into a greased casserole dish. Top with bread crumbs and dot with remaining butter. Bake for 30 minutes.
