Very good dish, and not overly sweet; made as written. Other recipes like this call for 1/2 cup sugar or more versus 1/4 cup for this one. For the ‘1/2 cup cracker crumbs’, used 12 Ritz crackers. The nut topping, with sunflower seeds included, gives this a nice twist from the norm. While using the specified amount of butter, next time might reduce it slightly to say 3 tablespoons. A good choice for a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, especially if lots of sweet stuff is already in the planned food choices. Thank you emoon.

If you take this to a pot luck dinner, you'll be overwhelmd by the requests for the recipe. I didn't have crackers so I used crushed potato chips.

Delicious! Loved this. It was great. I used 1 whole package of Ritz crackers and used a lot more butter 1/2 cup when drizzling over them. I also used a whole onion. The nuts on top are so different and unusual but taste yummy. Loved it and so did the family!

I used Splenda instead of sugar, egg whites instead of a whole egg, low fat mayonnaise and cheese to cut he calories and fat. It was delicious 157calories a serving and 10.4 gms of fat.

Used panko crumbs, pecans and pumpkin seeds. I think you could use any nuts and seeds. I used two Tbl of dried onion flakes.

My husband and I both love this recipe. The mayo and onion make it different from the typical sweet squash casseroles, aand give it a velvety texture as well. I'm making it for the third time tonight.

This is wonderful. I used coconut oil, sesame crackers, breadcrumbs and almonds on top because that is what I had and it still turned out great. I did precook the squash in the microwave to speed up the process.

I enjoyed it. Substituted sliced almonds for the seeds/nuts because it's what I had. Measured the sugar a little lean. Think I'll be sure to use a sweet onion next time because the yellow onion was a little strong. I'll likely put the onion in the blender because the kids (7 and 4yrs) really liked their first bite, but I think the texture turned them off. I was so glad to find a squash recipe that didn't sound like a dessert... most of them have a whole cup of sugar... sounds more like pie or a dessert to me.
