Squash Casserole (Charlotte's Barclay Cafeteria)

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by l0vetw0c00k

We still mourn the closing of Barclay Cafeteria in Charlotte, NC's Southpark Shopping Mall. This was one of their signature dishes and the local newspaper published the recipe in response to many requests when they closed. I make it frequently all year long but especially in summer squash season. It cooks up almost like a custard or souffle and is absolutely delicious.
