The Best Squash Casserole
Yellow Squash Casserole is a classic Southern side dish. Sliced squash is baked in a cheesy cream sauce and topped with a buttery cracker crumble. It is always a favorite!
Servings: 6 Servings
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 3 pounds yellow squash sliced
- 1 white onion diced
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 8 ounces sour cream
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 large egg
- 1 sleeve Ritz crackers crushed
- 2 tablespoons butter melted
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x9 baking pan or casserole dish.
Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add in squash and onion and season with salt. Cooking, stirring frequently until squash just starts to soften and liquids have been released, about 7 to 10 minutes. Drain well.
In a large mixing bowl stir together sour cream, cheddar cheese, parmesan, and egg until well combined. Add in squash and gently fold until well coated. Pour into the prepared baking pan.
In another small bowl, toss together crushed crackers, butter, and parmesan cheese. Sprinkle over the top of the squash.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, uncovered, until topping is lightly browned. Serve hot.
