HOLY. COW. This was sooo good. Even my two year old ate it! I was amazed to watch him eating a veggie!! Thank you so much. My family owns a restaurant in Texas (country cookin) and this is better than theirs!!
My dinner guest declared this "the best squash casserole I've ever had. I could eat it everyday!" I liked it as well. Due to availability and diet constraints, I used Egg-beaters and no-fat half'n half. Thanks.
Excellent. Only added some buttered saltines on top.
I was born in Charlotte NC -- before Barclay I think -- and this is exactly (ok, replace that processed cheese with cheddar) what my mom made for squash casserole when I was very young. I loved it even then! When I was a teenager, we were more health-conscious (but still love our cheese!), so we left out the margarine, sugar, and sometimes flour. Just so you know, those modifications work! When I use 50% or 75% reduced-fat cheese, the flour is NOT needed. Childhood classic summer comfort food!
We don't always pre-cook and mash the squash, and while that's a completely different dish, it's also delicious as long as you don't mind your squash being visibly obvious.
I've been making this for years. I've had to adlib a few times, but it has always turned out fantastic! Even vegetable haters love this. You can NOT go wrong!
I made this just as written with the exception of using cheddar cheese rather than process. Everyone who tried it loved it. Thank you for sharing.
This recipe sounds wonderful. I am from Charlotte and am going to try this one. Can this casserole be assembled the day before baking?
Everyone loved this and I even had requests for the recipe. I followed the recipe as written and used the full 2 tablespoons sugar. Some reviewers said that was too much sugar, but we didn't think so. I didn't have a potato masher because my DD took it off to college, so I had to use my electric mixer. I'd highly recommend investing in a potato masher because the electric mixer made a mess and I had to leave it somewhat chunky. Nevertheless, it didn't alter the taste and we all enjoyed this dish. Thank you l0vetw0c00k for posting!
I made this recipe today for a family function BOY was it a hit!! I doubled the recipe so there was plenty. I put a small amount on my plate and it was great . I went back for more only to find my 34yo nephew scraping the casserole dish for more.
Outstanding! I halved the recipe and used shredded cheddar and mozzarella. Heated up great the next day. Next time I might bake or steam the squash instead boiling to preserve all the nutrients. Also - we didn't think this was too sweet with the full amount of sugar. Thanks!
