Squash Casserole Recipe


1 tbsp olive oil for sautéing veggies or use non-stick cooking spray
2 lbs yellow squash chopped or sliced (whichever you prefer – I usually slice)
1 onion, chopped or sliced
1 cup low fat shredded cheddar cheese
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk (we use skim or 1 %)
1 cup seasoned croutons, crushed
2 tbsp melted butter
Garlic powder and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Saute squash and onions in skillet until tender, but not mushy. Place veggies in a 2 qt casserole. In a medium bowl, combine egg, cheese, milk and spices. Mix well and pour into the casserole dish with the squash. Bake for 25 minutes. While squash mixture is baking, melt butter and pour over crushed croutons. Mix well. Remove squash from oven and sprinkle buttered croutons on top of casserole. Bake an additional 10-15 more minutes. Serves 4.
