Cook Time: 35 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

6   yellow or pattypan summer squash
1 cup onions, chopped
1   clove garlic, minced
1/2   stick butter
2   slices white bread
1   medium bowl ice water
1   egg
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 cup cracker crumbs, or enough to cover casserole





Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Peel and cut squash into cubes.  Boil until tender, about 5 to 7 minutes, and drain.  Brown onion and garlic, and parsley in 2 tablespoons butter seasoned with salt and pepper.  Soak bread in ice water and wring out; chop fine.  Add to onion and garlic mixture; cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes.  Add drained squash and cook 2 to 3 minutes more, stirring. Remove from heat. Beat egg and add, allowing it to absorb into the mixture. Season with salt and pepper, if needed.

Place in casserole dish or baking pan.  Cover top with cracker crumbs and dot with remaining butter.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the crumbs brown. 

Cook’s Note: You can refrigerate this dish for up to two days before baking, but you should add the bread crumb topping right before you bake.

I was never a squash fan until I tried this last summer (2012), and I'm addicted now. I have a garden with the pattypan squash in my backyard. I highly suggest using pattypan squash for this recipe!

Dear Ms Paula I love you. You make me smile and laugh. I was at your restaurant one time in one of the casino in Mississippi. We got robbed at the hotel we slept at so Bob says no more going up around Tunica area. He was going to take me to your restaurant in Savannah. So I am saving up to my your cook books and your sons'. Thank you ! You are heaven sent
