Vegetable Recipe Challenge- Day 12- Summer Squash Casserole

This makes a great side dish, but I enjoy it so much for a afternoon snack. I add so many vegetables to dishes just like , it’s a great way to use up a very small amount you may have laying around. Also makes a great dish to take to a dinner party for the host. It would be really colorful if you added some chopped bell peppers!

 1 1/2 lbs cubed squash, yellow summer squash and zucchini are perfect for this dish but you can use one or another if you only have on on hand
1 onion finely chopped
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste (half a teaspoon each is all that’s needed)
3 eggs beaten
1 1/2 cup breadcrumbs and or crushed crackers

Beat eggs and season with pepper and salt, stir in cheese. Set aside. Heat oven to 350F . Spray a baking pan and set aside
Wash and cut your squash. Heat butter in a skillet and added chopped onion. Cook until just starting to golden, do not brown. Add in your squash and saute about five minutes. Removed from heat. Pour vegetable mixture into prepare pan and spread if needed. Pour egg mixture over squash. Sprinkle breadcrumbs and or crackers over top. Cook for about 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
