Every good Southern girl has to have a Squash Casserole recipe. Here's my version.
You would need to double this if making for a big holiday meal with a large group.
2 pounds yellow squash, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
1/2 cup diced onion
salt and pepper
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs
Sauté squash and onion (add salt and pepper here) in a little oil until soft, but not too soft and browned a bit. Combine squash, eggs, cheese and bread crumbs in a large bowl. Pour into greased casserole dish. Top with more bread crumbs.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.
Yield: 4 to 5 servings
If you buy pre-shredded cheddar cheese, get the larger grated kind, not the finely shredded.
