I absolutely love squash. It's my favorite vegetable by far. There are so many things you can do with it, and with the exception of straight up frying it - making into a casserole is my favorite 2nd favorite way to eat it.
When we first started gardening years ago, I experimented with several different recipes - none of which were bad, but none of which were perfect either. As with most of my other recipes, I dabbled around a bit in experimentations until I finally ended up with perfection.
Perfection ended up being simpler than I thought.
Follow along with me. It's really easy.
Here's what you need. In two parts. Because I forgot to add the 2 bowls of squash & onions to the first photo. Oh, and while the cheese crackers are mandatory for the recipe, the Angry Birds are optional. Well, unless you ask my 2 year old.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Place the squash (or how my PawPaw would say - 'squish') and the onions in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and pour in some water, just enough to cover. Cover, & cook until the squash & onions are tender - about 5 minutes.
Drain it - and then set it aside in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, melted butter, salt & pepper. In another bowl, mix together the cracker crumbs & cheese. Mix half of the crumb mixture with the squash, and then stir in the egg mixture. Pour into a 2 or 3 quart baking dish.
Sprinkle on the remaining crumb/cheese mixture. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
