Reviews forCheesy Summer Squash Casserole
"I made this for a recent potluck and it was creamy, cheesy and delicious. The cornflake topping makes it an attractive dish and adds a nice crunch."
"This dish was so good that it was all I ate for dinner the other night. DELICIOUS !!!"
"Absolutely delicious! Made this for the first time tonight - will definitely be making it many more times!"
"Good casserole! I doubled the recipe, except for the sugar and salt, and used a heaping cup of cheese. Didn't have cornflakes, so I used butter crackers. Definitely worth a try, especially if you have an abundance of summer squash to use up!"
"Made this recipe with summer squash and zucchini. Added some minced garlic and used panko because I did not have corn flakes. I placed the onion and squash in a large measuring cup along with 2 tablespoons of water. Covered and vented it and microwaved it for 5 minutes. Drained it and patted it dry. I wanted a lighter dish so I skipped the egg. Baked it according to directions. I came out deliciously hot and bubbly. Loved it. Want to try the technique with cauliflower and maybe carrots!!!!"
"easy and cheap to make. Several friends asked for the recipe. Added a little parmesan."
"Yum! I cut up 9 small yellow squash (approx. 5-6" long) that amounted to approx. 8 c. Used 4 eggs and 1 c. mayo. I didn't have the recipe in front of me and forgot the onion and sugar, but it was just fine without it. Approx. 1 c. of cheese. Added a couple dashes of an herb blend. Didn't have cornflakes so crushed some croutons on top. It was very good!!"
"I have been regularly making this recipe since it was first published. Many times I have quadrupled the portions and brought it to family get togethers. Everyone loves it. Best squash casserole recipe I've found. The only thing I do different is crush New York Texas Toast garlic and butter croutons for the topping."
"This was only ok. Maybe I just don't like summer squash?"
"Really good easy recipe even ate it cold!"
