    Why did my milk curdle a little?

    This casserole was so good that even I enjoyed it, despite disliking squash. I tweaked it a little bit to use what I had on hand (chopped scallions instead of regular onions, added some crushed french fried onions to the squash mixture and the cracker crumbs, just made it one thin layer on a rimmed baking sheet, added some extra cheese on top), and it was so good that the woman I worked for couldn't stop raving about it. If you want to get even a picky kid (I usually eat like one) to eat some squash, try this recipe.

    Prepared this tonight following the recipe except, after baking, I placed it under the broiler for a couple minutes to brown the cracker topping a little more. It was great!! Next time I might try it with a little less butter :)

    the most delicately delicious squash casserole I've ever tasted!

    I thought it was very tasty. I used a cheddar/monterey jack blend as that was what I had in the fridge. I would use either 3/4 or 1/2 of the butter called for. The buttery crackers and then a full stick of butter seemed to be too much. But it was very delicious and everyone had seconds!

    We made this when I was growing up, but used Velveeta cheese instead of cheddar. Super yummy!
