Squash Casserole

Source: Martha Stewart Living, August 2003

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds yellow squash or zucchini (older larger squash may be used here), cleaned and cut into 1/2-inch rounds
  • 1 yellow onion, peeled and cut into large dice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, leaves
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch cayenne, pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place squash and onion in a medium saucepan, and cover with water. Add 1 tablespoon salt, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain well, and transfer to a large bowl.

  2. Add 1 cup breadcrumbs, eggs, cream, thyme, 1/2 cup cheese, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and remaining teaspoon salt. Gently stir to combine. Pour into a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Spread remaining 1/2 cup cheese and remaining 1/2 cup breadcrumbs over top. Cover, and bake until set, about 30 minutes. Uncover, and continue baking until top is browned, about 10 minutes more.

    Yum! This is a great way to use summer squash. It's almost like a healthy macaroni and cheese. Hearty enough for a main course but simple enough to also be a side dish. I subbed milk for the heavy cream and it was fine. Keeps well in the fridge, too!

    If you have never made squash casserole, you should try this. I've made it lots of times. Be sure and use the sharp cheddar cheese. It does make a difference! This is a good dish for company and I seldom have leftovers.
