  • 1 teaspoon Paula Deen's House Seasoning
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup buttery crackers, crushed
  • 6 cups raw squash
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 cup water


Preheat oven to 350°.


Using a heated stewing pot, add 6 cups of raw sliced squash and water, and stir and let stew for 5-10 minutes. Then pour the stewed squash into a colander, covered in a clean rag or cheesecloth, and allow the water and juices to drain by mashing with a spoon.


In separate medium size skillet, saute the sliced onion in butter for 5 minutes.


Remove from pan and, using a large bowl, add squash, onions, sour cream, Paula Deen's House Seasoning and sharp cheddar cheese. Pour mixture into a buttered casserole dish and top with cracker crumbs. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

We first had thi

We first had this in her restaurant in Pigeon Forge, everything we had that day, my husband said was "the best he ever had" and this casserole was of the things we had. Came home and made it, We chunked the summer squash instead of slicing thin, and added a bit more cheddar cheese, and I don't like squash and even I thought it was great! Paula's house seasoning is 1 cup of salt, 1/4 cup of pepper and 1/4 cup of garlic powder for those that don't know. This is easy to make and worth it!
