One of our favorite vegetables is yellow squash and this casserole makes the perfect holiday side dish. It’s simple enough to make even on a weeknight, but also makes a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving or Christmas table. Give it a try and see if you like it as much as we do.
Start by washing and slicing the squash. Place the squash, onion, salt, and pepper in a large pot. Add a little water, cover and cook the squash until tender. Drain any extra liquid out and return the veggies to the pan. Add the butter and season to taste with more salt and pepper. Preheat your oven to 350F. Butter a 1½-quart baking dish well. Crumble up the crackers and pour them in the squash mixture. Spoon the mixture into a casserole dish. Pour the milk over the squash and sprinkle with the cheese and bread crumbs. Bake your casserole for 20 minutes. The crust will be golden brown.
