"Aunt Fanny's restaurant was located in Smyrna, Georgia. This was one of the famous side dishes they served with their good old-fashion cooking. The restaurant is now closed but their squash casserole lives on. Time does not include cooking squash and onion to use in casserole"

"Wonderful squash recipe. Thanks for posting."
"YUMMY!!! I threw in one zucchini because I didn't have enough yellow squash and we all thought it added some nice color. I used a level teaspoon of black pepper which my husband & I really liked, but was a bit much for our kids. I also used Panko breadcrumbs which I sprinkled on top without any butter. Thanks for sharing!"
"This has been a family staple for years and years. A must at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Once by mistake I forgot to cook the onions with the squash. This became my new way of cooking it. I chop the onions very small and add raw after the squash is cooked and drained. We really like the added flavor. I use Ritz crackers also. I sprinkle the top with grated parmesan cheese before baking. During the holidays to help with time, I mix my toppings for my casseroles and put in a ziploc bag to be added just before baking. I make this, my sweet potato souffle and my mac and cheese the day before, cool to room temp, cover and refridgerate. I take them out to warm to room temp, apply the toppings and then bake. Only I know how I managed so much food in one day!"
"Delicious and easy! Thank you."
"Loved this. I added some cheddar cheese too. <br/>Next time I am going to seed my yellow squash. The ones I had were too seedy and messed up my dish...which otherwise was super!! <br/>Thanks for sharing."
"I was looking for a new easy way to prepare squash and found the perfect recipe here. Delicious!"
"This is a wonderful and easy side dish. My in-laws request this every Thanksgiving."
"This was really good and will be a great way to use up all the squash I'm about to have! I cooked the squash in the microwave until tender. I also sauteed the onion with a little garlic. Tossed all the ingredients together and topped with Panko. Will definitely make again."
"I ate this at the Aunt Fanny's restaurant years ago and it was simply the best squash in the world. I give out this recipe to all my friends. It is a 5 star plus!"
"Simple but quite good! I love squash anytime it's prepared with onion and a bit of sugar and this casserole is different and better than a lot of others in that it still tastes like squash :) Used the organic version of Ritz crackers. Will make again! Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"Wonderful! I used reduced fat Ritz cracker crumbs. The flavor is pleasant and slightly sweet. Loved it. Thanx for posting."
"I use saltines for my cracker crumbs. Every time I make this I get rave reviews!"
"I also use Ritz crackers. My grandmother visited the plantation years ago and always made this at Thanksgiving & Christmas. My grandmother has passed but we carry this recipe on as a holiday tradition. Everyone loves it. It is definately a family favorite. Going to bring to work but try to crock pot cook it...wish me luck."
"I used Ritz crackers in mine, as they are a favorite around here. Made for a very tasty squash dish indeed! We had this along with baked chicken and mashed potatoes, for one delicious meal!"
"I've been making this recipe for years and was dismayed this morning when I couldn't find it. What a relief to locate it here. The secret is to be sure and drain the squash really well after cooking. This is a great recipe that is a good change from all the cheese-laden squash dishes everyone serves."
"This is way over the top when it comes to summer squash casseroles. I lived in Atlanta for 32 years, and back when "Fanny's" was open, I ate there many, many times. What a loss for Atlanta. Of course with having lived there for 32 years, I remember well many of the "came and went" establishments. Aunt Fanny's was a landmark restaurant. I still have this recipe on a brochure that you could pick up at the door. As a matter of fact, I'll be preparing this again tomorrow. I have the squash and have pondered for 2 days what I was going to do with them. Now I know. BTW folks, this recipe freezes well, too! Thanks for sharing, TXOLDHAM!"
"It turns out like a mashed casserole, with a little sweetness and a yummy crust of cracker crumbs on top. I definately recommend using cracker meal over breadcrumbs. This is a family favorite in my house. My mother always made it on holidays, but my husband loves it so much he asks me to make it whenever he sees squash at the farmers market."
