Summer Squash

I turned the squash I bought at the Farmer's Market this weekend into a Summer Squash Casserole. Yum! A total comfort food dish.

Shelly's Summer Squash Casserole

3 cups sliced yellow summer squash or zucchini (or combo)
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1 green onion, chopped (1 tablespoon chives)
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tablespoon melted butter, divided use
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
4 tablespoons shredded Italian Blend cheese (mozzarella, fontina, etc.)
kosher salt
freshly ground pepper
2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan
2 Tablespoons Italian dry bread crumbs

Saute the squash and onion till it just gets a little color and slightly tender. Add green onions. Combine sour cream, 1 T of the melted butter, cheese, egg, salt and seasonings. Off the heat. Fold into cooked squash. Turn into buttered casserole. Combine other Tablespoon of melted butter, bread crumbs and Parmesan. Sprinkle over top of casserole. Bake at 350 degrees about 25 - 30 minutes or until browned and bubbly.

Hi Michelle,
I was Googling for a recipe to use up some of our summer squash and your blog came up...we had the casserole for dinner tonight and LOVED it!
I used egg substitute, and added a whole lot more chives than called for..but otherwise followed your recipe. It is a keeper...thanks so much! And congratulations on your wonderful journey to better health...

Hi Michelle,

First pf all I want to say "Thank You" for all the recipes, support, and help you give us on the OH site" You are such a blessing! Anyway, we tried the Summer Squash casserole a couple of weeks ago and loved it. I have since made it for work, home, and a covered dish dinner at church. Everyone just raves over it. It seems down south all we ever do with squash is fry it. So this was definitely different! Thanks again!

A little background. I am finishing up my 6 month diet for insurance and hopefully approval, and my wife is 3 months out and has lost 72 lbs.! Yeah! I plan on sharing this recipes with my friends on the Tennessee site if that is OK! I will give them a link to your blog.
