Tender squash, gooey cheese and onions make this a memorable side dish. Even the kids will love it. This is soo different than the regular squash casseroles
eggs, slightly beaten
packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cup
grated cheddar cheese, divided
lemon juice (optional)
Cut squash into large chunks, Cook in boiling water until tender (about 20 minutes). Drain well. Remove peel and mash. Set aside. In a bowl microwave buttern and onion for two minutes. Stir into squash. In a bowl combine remaining ingredients, using only 1/4 cup of the cheese. Add to squash and stir together. Pour into a greased 2-quart casserole. Sprinkle with remaining cheese, Bake at 350* for 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
**This is orginial recipe. I did a few things different. I pierce the squash a few times with a knife and then bake in oven at 350* for about 45 min. Its much easier than trying to chop the squash before it is cooked. The skin peels off rather easily also. I decrease the brown sugar to 1/4 c. I also mixed about 1/2 to 3/4 c of cheese into the casserole and still sprinkled about 3/4 c on top. So total amount of cheese used was 1 1/4 to 1 1/2.
I have to try this it looks so yummy.
Thanks for the recipe.
Sounds like our THanksgiving group would love this one! Will be trying it and expect rave reviews there.
I cook for my son and 3 ofhis friends on Thursdays and I am always looking for something new to try. This sounds very good so will give it a try.
Great recipe, love the combination of squash & cheddar.
Looks like an amazing dish for our family. We have an odd household that consists of three carnivores, a vegetarian, and a vegan. I can alter this recipe as needed when fixing it for anyone that wants it :)
