Charleston Yellow Squash Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by BeachGirl

Even though my family doesn't really like ssquash, they LOVE this casserole and often request it instead of potatoes! It's secret ingredient, nutmeg, adds a really different flavor combination that is a real people pleaser! It freezes well, so I always keep one on hand for potluck suppers or picnics. The original recipe, which I have modified to be lower-fat, came from "Entertaining at the College of Charleston", by Zoe D. Sanders

I made this for dinner tonight and served it with broiled yellowfin tuna steaks and rice. It was really a very good squash casserole and I would give it a 4-1/2 rating if I could. The nutmeg is something that you notice but you can't define what it is that you are tasting. I never would have thought of adding nutmeg to a squash casserole but I like it. Thanks for posting a good recipe!
