Low Carb Yellow Squash Casserole

Recipe by  

"This recipe was created to use up a large amount of squash we were given. We modified an existing recipe, swapping out almonds for crackers and whole cream for milk. It satisfies my husband's diet and tastes great!"

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Heat olive oil and butter in a skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir onion and garlic in the hot oil-butter mixture until softened, about 3 minutes. Add squash, salt, and pepper; stir to combine. Cover skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until squash is softened, about 5 minutes. Transfer squash mixture to a large bowl.
  3. Mix raw almonds and 1/2 cup Colby-Monterey Jack cheese together in a bowl; stir into squash mixture. Whisk cream and eggs together in a measuring cup or small bowl; stir into squash mixture. Pour squash mixture into a 9x13-inch casserole dish; top with remaining Colby-Monterey Jack cheese and roasted almonds.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is golden brown and bubbling, 25 to 30 minutes.

I followed the directions in this recipe with the exception of 1) using a mix of yellow squash and zucchini, 2) using my Paderno to cut the squash into "noodles," and 3) adding diced, cooked chicken, making this an all-in-one casserole. I loved the texture the almonds gave to the dish! It was a delicious, fresh tasting entree for dinner.

Very good! Followed the recipe but did add green chiles for fun.
