From Taste of Home. This is a great side dish with fall appeal. It's creamy, comforting and looks pretty, too, thanks to the rich yellow butternut squash and golden crumb topping.

This was easy and pretty good, but the taste of the squash was lost in the taste of the egg and mayonaise.

Wonderful, savory squash casserole. I loved the crinchy topping. I used reduced-fat Ritz instead of saltines, but that was the only change that I made. Thanx for sharing. I'll be making this again with some acorn squash, too.
