Yellow Squash Casserole

Scripture to Live By:

Psalm 100
Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
 Know that the Lord, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;[a]
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.

I really enjoy this time of year when the garden is producing yellow squash.  We really enjoy Yellow Squash Casserole and look forward to it each summer and fall.

Here is how you make it:

You need  4 medium size yellow squash.

Chop or slice it. 

You will need the following ingredients as well. 

Place 1/2 of the yellow squash in a 9x13 baking dish.

Slice or chop one medium size onion.

Put 1/2  of chopped onion on top of the yellow squash.

Cut 1/2 pound of Velveeta  or  cheddar cheese, chopped or sliced.

Place 1/2 of cheese  on top of the onions.

Add 1/2 of the can, of cream of chicken soup.

Repeat the layers again, yellow squash, onions, cheese and soup.

Cover with aluminum foil.  Place in preheated, 350 degree oven.  Bake for 45 minutes.  Check to see if squash is tender, if not bake another 15 minutes.   

While casserole is baking, melt 2 Tablespoons of butter or margarine.

Crush 1 roll of Ritz crackers.


Mix the two together and set aside. 

When casserole is tender, remove from oven and top with the cracker butter topping.

Return to the oven and bake 15 minutes. 

Remove from the oven and cool slightly.

Serve with fresh carrots and celery, add a  pumpernickel roll. Yummy!

This is so good.  It is one of our favorite ways to cook yellow squash.  We look forward to growing  yellow squash, knowing how much we will enjoy the dishes we can make from it, especially this one.
