TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 6 small yellow summer squash (3 pounds), cut into chunks

"I thought that I didn't really like squash until I tried this!! The only thing I changed was: I only used 1 tablespoon of sugar and I used Italian Bread Crumbs because that's all I had. It was delicious!!"

"My family doesn't care for sweet summer squash, so I substituted 2 T Parmesan cheese for the 2 T sugar. Also, I halved the recipe. Good!"

"This turned out perfectly with just 1 egg instead of 2. I used a medium diced onion and maybe a bit more bread crumbs. It got rave reviews at Thanksgiving."
