This is another great use of all the abundant squash now available. It makes a great side dish for any meal… delicious too.


3 pounds yellow squash, cut into 1-inch cubes

1/2 cup dry bread crumbs

1/2 cup chopped onion

2 eggs

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 cup butter, melted

1/4 cup dry bread crumbs

Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F.  Grease a 2-quart baking dish.
Place the squash in a large saucepan, cover with water, and boil until soft, about 15 minutes. Drain the squash well, place in a large mixing bowl, and mash until slightly chunky. Stir in 1/2 cup of bread crumbs, onion, eggs, 1/4 cup of butter, sugar, salt, and pepper until thoroughly combined, and spread mixture into the prepared baking dish. Drizzle the top of the casserole with 1/4 cup melted butter, and sprinkle 1/4 cup bread crumbs over the butter.
Bake in the preheated oven until the casserole is cooked through and the top is golden brown, about 1 hour.
