This was my mothers recipe and one of my families absolute favorites. It is always requested at family get to gathers.
Yellow squash washed & sliced
stick salted butter
sleeve of salted saltines
cups medium cheddar cheese
large onion sliced
In a large pot add sliced squash, bullion & onion. Slowly bring up to medium heat be careful not to scorch squash. you do not add water because there will be alot of liquid begin to cook out of the squash. when squash is tender and most of the liquid has evaporated. turn heat off and add butter, egg, 1/2 of cheese & 1/2 of crushed saltines. Mix well. if you still have liquid add a few more saltines. Pour into a 9 x 13 buttered baking dish and top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 until lightly brown and bubbly.
