The other day I was reading one of my favorite blogs and the recipe of the day was squash casserole. The pictures reminded me of how my nana’s always looked and my mouth began watering for some! I commented that I wanted to make some of that! I promptly forgot about it. Saturday I went to the farmer’s market and bought some fresh squash so I came home and found nana’s recipe and went to town! So, here is it:
6 cups large sliced yellow squash
1 large onion chopped
4 Tablespoons butter
1/2 Cup sour cream
1 Cup grated cheddar cheese
1 Cup crushed butter crackers (like Ritz)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Saute’ in the vegetable oil
Then drain the oil from the squash like this:
I recommend using Reynold’s Wrap Pan Liner – because it rocks!!
Fold the sour cream and cheese into the squash:
Top with crushed crackers:
Bake at 350 degrees F for 24-30 minutes and it’s done!

It is delish!
this looks delicious and I’ve never heard of it before! Yum!
Thank you! It is wonderful. I forgot to say in the post that it freezes so well. I put single servings in and take them to work!
Go nana! This looks amazing:] I am taking some time to go to the farmers market tomorrow. I keep getting a sore throat, prolly from dust and sitting. I think some squash casserole would do me good!
Yep, just what Nana would prescribe! You can improve on it I’m sure………..let’s see what you can add! 🙂 Love ya, take care of yourself.
Growing in in Texas, squash casserole was one of the vegetables you could decide on when a meal came with three sides at a restaurant.
Yes and still can! – at Cracker Barrel and most B-B-Q places throughout the central south region……But I’m always getting okra because it’s so darn hard to fry well at home (at least I can’t do it).
I love fried okra. It is messy to cook at home as it splatters so much.

I’m very fond of squash and this looks divine! Thanks so much for linking up (& linking back!) at Weekend Potluck. =)
Marsha, I’m pleased that you like it! It is my pleasure to link up because it always gets me so much traffic -hence, ya’ll do more for me than I do you! And Top Girl and son-in-law’s Linky Party video gets a lot of traffic on Fridays and Saturdays as well….that’s fun to watch!
Wonderful recipe, Kelli! I’ve never done baked yellow squash before. 😉

Oh man, Kelli, I am SO glad you post all these authentic Southern recipes because I am falling so quickly in loooooove with Southern cuisine! It’s so hard to find good Southern food here in California, so making it is your best bet and this looks awesome. Crunchy, tender, yummy–absolutely perfect with BBQ’d kielbasa, methinks 🙂 yum yum!
You are so sweet! Thanks. I’ve got another southern one coming up soon. Hope you like it too!!
