Southern Squash Casserole
"A classic Southern Squash Casserole is the perfect way to enjoy the bounty from your summer garden! The cheesy filling is topped with a buttery crumb topping for the ultimate family-friendly side dish recipe! A squash casserole is something that just about every seasoned home cook has prepared at least once, and there are about a zillion different ways to do so! In the South, you'll find that a squash casserole normally includes: • cooked yellow squash, often combined with onions and red bell peppers (or pimientos); • cheddar cheese; • a creamy base (typically either sour cream or mayonnaise, but I prefer a combination of both); • and a buttery crumb topping (Ritz crackers are the KEY!). A winning combination!"
NotesCooking Just for Two? You can prepare a smaller casserole by cutting the ingredients in half and baking the dish in 1-quart casserole. The rest of the instructions remain the same.
