I made this tonight and just loved it. It is a great way to get rid of some of the abundance of squash in my garden. I must give credit to Paula Deen who is the creator of the recipe. Makes a great side dish in a southern meal.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 cups yellow squash, large diced
  • 3 cups zucchini, large diced
  • vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 12 cup sour cream

  • 1 cup crushed butter flavored cracker (recommended Ritz)
  • House Seasoning (use 1 teaspoon)

  • 1 cup salt
  • 14 cup black pepper
  • 14 cup garlic powder
  • butter flavored cracker (recommended Ritz)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

This was a keeper! I did make a few changes, however. I didn't have butter flavored crackers so I substituted stove top stuffing mix and instead of using it as a topping I mixed it in and didn't drain the squash. Also I skipped the seasoning mix. Very good!! Thanks for the recipe!

I made this for a work lunch today- it was really yummy! We have so many squash and zucchini from my parents garden, so this helped to use those extra vegetables. I think everyone really enjoyed it...several people asked for the recipe, so...that's always a good sign :-)
