Yellow Squash Casserole

I’ve come to think that my Mother-in-law and I are kindred spirits when it comes to good food.

In general we both like the same kinds of dishes.

Well…with the exception of mushrooms.

Which she loves, but I don’t much care for.

And I always know that the dishes my husband will stick his nose up to {like this one} is indeed she and I will LOVE.





And it’s true.  We LOVED this dish.

This yellow squash casserole has only a handful of ingredients.

It takes 35 minutes to make and is all done in a single pan.

It really doesn’t get much easier than that.

But the best part is that it goes great with ANY main dish.

Serve it for Thanksgiving or Christmas, with your post roast or even pork loin.

This yellow squash casserole goes great with all of them.

This is a fabulous dish to use up squash from the garden or even the purchased ones and if you are anything like me, you’ll love this as much as we do.

However if you want to really spice it up, add a little diced bacon to the initial squash and onion sautee and magic will happen with your taste buds!

    • Hi Pat! Thanks for pointing this out! I’ve updated the recipe. I use a 12 inch deep skillet. However you can make it in another pan and then transfer it to a 9×13 casserole dish to cook too. Great question!
