    I made it and it was delicious! I don't like crunchy onions in a casserole so I sauteed vidalia onion in butter until caramelized and added that instead of raw onion.

    I love making this recipe because of its simplicity. There are others out there but when the ingredient list gets too long, I lose interest. I have made this recipe for many friends and family. It's always a hit. When I send them the recipe, they cannot believe how simple it is to make. I do add more summer squash than the recipe calls for as I have an abundance from my garden. I double the amount 3 lbs of squash which is about 6 cups drained for double recipe. The rest of the ingredients remains the same. Enjoy!

    Can you freeze to make ahead? Before or after cooking is best? Thank you.

    This was a really delicious recipe! I added a few changes. I cooked the squash and onion together with 2 Tbs butter and a chicken bouillon cube and sprinkled black pepper and cooked til real tender (didnt peel the squash) than drained real good and placed in a bowl and added 2 more Tbs of butter and stirred well. I slightly whisk a egg in a separate bowl and added 4th cup of whipping cream than poured into the mixture and added 1/2c of cheese and the crackers crumbs. I used townhouse light and buttery crackers along with garlic croutons crushed together. Used about a cup. Than mixed all together and put in a glass casserole dish and topped with more cracker crumbs and cheese. Was the best squash casserole I have ever made!!! Huge hit! This will be our favorite from now on! Thank you for sharing your recipe!!
