yellow squash, sliced
shredded Cheddar cheese
biscuit baking mix (such as Bisquick®)
saltine crackers, or as needed, crushed
This side dish turned out to be everyone’s most favorite dish of an elaborate meal. This is just heaven!
I deviated somewhat from the original recipe by crushing onion & garlic croutons instead of the bland saltine crackers. I also made my own baking mix (1/2 cup flour; 0.75 teaspoons baking powder; 1/8 teaspoon salt; 1/2 tablespoon shortening, oil, or melted butter. First mix the dry ingredients then mix in the oil; mix well. You will have some extra baking mix).
This totally rocks as far as my girls are concerned! My guys, didn't even try this and really missed out on a delish comfort casserole. One of my daughters said this tasted similar to a Squash and Onions that my mom would make..so surprisingly I was shocked. The recipe was rather easy to do. The only thing I had to do was make a batch of baking mix, because I was plum out....with that, it rose beautifully, the flavor was soo good and I think I'd used Seasoned Panko bread crumbs next time!!! Other then that scrumptious!
The halved this recipe and used Italian bread crumbs. Loved this dish and will definitely make again when I get the veggies. Thanks for a delicious recipe.
Good but a little bland with saltines. The second time I made this I was doubling the recipe and went for more flavor. Used a 5 oz. pouch of seasoned croutons (Italian or Caesar OK), sharp cheddar (4 cups), 3 Tbsp. of lemon juice to balance the sweetness. Also added 2 sliced red Bell peppers for color. So the veggies would retain more flavor I steamed instead of boiling them. Didn't have a steamer so I just dumped half a drawer of silverware into the bottom of a Dutch oven and added 2 cups of water. Started with cold water do it took almost 30 min. over low heat to get all these vegetables tender. Used seasoned bread crumbs on top. Came out a little bread-y but the flavor was perfect!
