Squash Casserole

adapted from allrecipes

makes 9x9 inch pan

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 20-25 minutes

2 1/2 C chopped squash (we like ours chopped smalled)

very small onion, (chopped, grated, or heck--just throw 1/2 tsp onion powder in if you man is going to object to onion)

20 Saltines (crushed small--not powder, but small chunks)

3/4 C cheddar cheese, shredded (I like it sharp)

1 egg

scan 1/2 C milk

4 Tbsp butter, divided

1/2 tsp salt

pepper to taste

Melt 2 Tbsp butter in a skillet and saute the squash and onion in it for several minutes until tender. 

Meanwhile crush your crackers and shred your cheese. Put these together in a bowl and mix them up. When the squash and onion is read, take it off the heat and put it in its own bowl (or, if you are lazy like I am--and why not be--put it right in the 9x9 inch pan you'll be using). Add 1/2 of the cracker/cheese mixture to the squash onion mixture. Mix the egg and milk together and add that to the squash mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Put it in the pan (if you haven't already) and top it with the remaining cracker/cheese mixture. Melt the remaining 2 Tbsp butter and drizzle it over the top of your casserole. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned.
