This is a delicious recipe to use up your crop of summer squash, even people who hate squash like this recipe! When I made this I added in about 2 teaspoons fresh minced garlic, but that is optional. You can cook the squash hours in advance.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop the squash into about 1-1/2-inch cubes.
  2. Bake, steam or boil until tender; drain the squash very well if boiling then place into a bowl and mash.
  3. Set oven to 375 degrees.
  4. Butter a 2-quart casserole dish.
  5. To the mashed squash add in 1/4 cup melted butter, onions, eggs, sugar, seasoned salt and black pepper to taste; mix to combine.
  6. Transfer the mixture to prepared baking dish.
  7. In a small bowl mix together the bread crumbs with Parmesan cheese and 1/4 cup melted butter until blended; sprinkle over the squash.
  8. Bake for about 45 minutes.
  9. Delicious!

Loved this! Added some cooked ground sausage before baking and sprinkled fresh shredded parmesan cheese to the top. It was delicious! Thank you for the recipe. Will be making again very soon!

Another great recipe from Kittencal. I really loved this dish. I peeled the squash and added a zucchini too. Steamed the veggies, then mashed and added the rest. I used a whole onion and added some hot garlic (combination of cayenne and garlic) which added some wonderful flavor. I did cut down on the bread crumbs and butter in the topping, but added more cheese. Had it along side of a nice steak cooked on the grill and salad. Family loved the meal! Will definitely make this again.

I really enjoyed this dish. I did not peel my squash or zucchini when I added it, but instead used by blender after it was cooked to get it well mashed. I had to substitute olive oil for the butter since my DD is allergic to dairy (and gave her a separate dish with no cheese since I wanted to have cheese on ours). The EVOO worked out fine. It was very good!
