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 :-)
Look no futher for the 'best ever' squash casserole! It is more than good, it is great! This casserole will be a star whenever you take it to a potluck. No changes needed, that is for sure! Yummy, Cheesy! Smile.
I too got this recipe from Paula Dean's Lady and Son's cook book. This is a great and easy recipe. I did change a few things though. I only used summer squash and I cooked my onion in with my squash to cut back on butter. I also add a little chicken boilion to my squash while it is cooking. Then I used 2% sharp chedder, reduced fat sour cream and whole wheat ritz crackers. These changes had very little impact on the great flavor, but a big impact on calorie intake. Great recipe thanks for posting!
Great recipe! I saw someone comment about using 1 cup of salt - the recipe is calling for a "House Seasoning" - the 1 cup of salt is mixed with 1/4c black pepper and 1/4c garlic powder of which once mixed you use 1 teaspoon of ... hee hee!
My husband and I loved it! I used pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar,and cut out the crackers, and it was still fabulous! I also added chayote to the mix, which helped a little with texture.
I was skeptical about the Ritz crackers, but after tasting the finished dish, can't think of anything better. Also appreciated use of "house seasoning" which personalizes the recipe.
Wow! I fed 6 adults with this, and we were fighting over scraping the dish for the last bits. Very delicious! I didn't have zucchini, so I used 6 cups of yellow squash. So tasty!
Defintly a winner! onyl change is i added eggplant becouse i diddnt have enough zuchini but will do they same next time becouse it all blended really good!
Delicious! NOTE: Do not use the entire house seasoning recipe. :) I am sure that is there so you can use at tsp or two to season up the squash mixture, but I can't imagine anyone wanting a cup of salt in this dish. The recipe says to add "all ingredients together" so I just wanted to make sure I clarified that to avoid anyone spoiling this delicious dish. I used reduced fat sour cream, 2% milk sharp cheddar and whole wheat crackers. If you are in a hurry I would suggest slicing the squash instead of cutting it into a large dice because it took me almost 45 minutes to get the squash broken down at medium low from starting with a "large dice." When you add that to the 25 minutes it takes to bake it becomes pretty time consuming but worth it! Definitely a keeper!
