Squash Casserole Side Dish Recipe

Squash Casserole Side Dish Recipe

Our 1-year-old son can be a fussy eater, and my husband is mostly a "meat and taters" man. But both my guys love this cheesy squash bake! Often, I make a double batch of it and take one to the 4-H nutrition class I teach. It's a "hit" there, too. If you're a pressed-for-time cook like I am, this squash casserole will streamline your menu planning.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup biscuit/baking mix
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, undrained
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 cups chopped yellow summer squash or zucchini

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, oil and biscuit mix. Stir in the chili peppers, onion, garlic and half the cheese. Stir in squash.
  • 2. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes; sprinkle with reserved cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 8-10 servings.
