Squash Casserole


Tonight we had a delicious meal.  Bubbie pronounced it a "yucky" dinner.  Oh well......  I don't always aim to please, I guess. Tonights dinner was an E-Mealz meal that Hubbie and I really like- meatloaf, green beans, squash casserole and biscuits!  Yummy!  Yummy! But the squash casserole was a new menu item and I think it was a hit!  At least with Hubbie and myself.... the kids?  not so much!  Oh well!  I did convince Bubbie to eat all of his saying that it DID have cheese and Ritz crackers in it!!!  The casserole was really sweet and reminded me of a corn casserole that I've had before.  

Squash Casserole 

1lb of squash, sliced thinly
1/2 cup of diced onion
1 can of cream of mushroom
1/4 cup of sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 sleeve of Ritz crackers, crumbled up
1 cup of cheddar cheese

Melt butter in large skillet. Add squash & onion. Season w/ salt &
pepper. Cook until squash is tender. Set aside. Mix together eggs &
mushroom soup. Add squash mixture. Stir in ¼ c sugar & crushed
crackers. Pour into greased 2 qt baking dish. Top w/ shredded cheese.
Bake at 350º for 30 minutes, until set.

Lu's Notes: 

I did not use as much onion as they called for.  I thought I had plenty of onion, but realized that all of the onion had gone bad, so I only had a tiny bit leftover.  Also, I didn't realize that the recipe called for cheese, so my block of cheese was in the freezer until about 5 mins before I needed it.  Ooops!  So, I did not use anywhere CLOSE to 1 cup of cheese.  Its just for the topping anyway, so I just did enough to cover the top lightly.... the block was frozen, so I was lucky I got what I did get!

Mmm, that sounds great! My favorite chicken casserole is made with a sleeve of Ritz so I know I would love this too! I'll have to try stocking up on cheese when it goes on sale and freezing it. Thanks for the tip!
