Simple, easy, and good. My grandmother's recipe.

- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 1 cup milk
- 2 cups cracker crumbs
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Combine all ingredients and mix well.
- Pour into pam sprayed dish. Bake for 40-45 minutes.
- Can make this into two smaller dishes and freeze one.
I made this to go alongside some fish using butternut pumpkin or squash as you call it. I was worried from the ingredients that it might be a little bland but the onion flavour gives it just enough punch, a lovely side and a great different way to serve pumpkin. I think this would also be great with some bacon added, yummo! Oh I topped mine with seasoned breadcrumbs rather than cracker crumbs..
Vicki - This was an interesting dish. I did find it rather greasy with the amount of butter and next time would definitely reduce that amount. The overall flavor is good. I used Ritz crackers to top the casserole. Tagged in AU/NZ Recipe Swap #15 May 2008.
This was a delicious squash recipe. When mixing it up I thought the amount of onions was going to be a bit too much for my husband, but he said he really liked it. He was a bit afraid to try (because of the onions) But said he was pleasantly surprised. I used unsalted saltines since that is what I buy, so it needed a bit extra salt, but that was my fault. I think this may make it to the Thanksgiving table. I see you have a whole series of "Baby's.." recipes and you leave me wondering who baby is...
