This is a recipe that came with my CSA order last week. We will be having it for dinner tonight, since we have all of the ingredients. I will probably double the recipe, actually, since we have about 4 pounds of yellow squash! I'll let you all know how it turns out. :)
Yellow Squash Casserole
2 pounds small yellow squash
1 medium onion
salt to taste
2 cups grated mild cheddar cheese (reserve some for topping)
1 cup whole milk (or use 1/2 milk and 1/2 heavy cream)
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
2 cups RITZ cracker crumbs (save some for the topping)
Wash the squash well and cut into bite size chunks.
Place in a pot with the chopped onion, add about 1 1/2 cups water, and sprinkle with some salt.
Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the squash are just barely tender.
Drain well and set aside to cool slightly.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the aquash/onion mixture, cheese (save some for the topping), melted butter, milk, egg and about 3/4 of the cracker crumbs.
Mix gently until all is combined.
Pour into a lightly greased or buttered baking dish.
Combine the reserved cheese and crumbs and sprinkle over the squash mixture.
Bake in a 350 degree oven about 25-30 minutes.
