"My Great Great Grandmother used to make this when I was young, and it has always been a favorite of my Atlanta and Alabama relatives! I learned how to make it from my Aunt Edith Russell, while visiting her in Atlanta in the mid-1990s!" — Coleman Bell

sweetened condensed milk, divided
With a very minor change this was great! Following another reviewer's suggestion, I sauteed the squash with the onion, and it was fantastic. I was a little concerned about the condensed milk, so I drizzled it lightly off of a spoon onto the top of the cheese layers. I'm not sure that I used quite the amount called for, but it added just the right touch of sweetness for our family. Thanks for another great summer garden recipe!
It is a nice alternative to cheesy hashbrowns, but it lacked a wow factor.
This is one of my all time favorites! I actually use more butter and sweetened condensed milk than the "official" version calls for, but it is a matter of taste!
It was good but in the future I will cook the onions ahead of time as they came out a bit on the crunchy side. I will also up the temp as at 350 for 30 mins, it didn't brown and there was a little too much liquid. I may also leave the skin on as it is a little monochromatic.
Good, but I think next time I would mix the onions throughout. An easy way to eat vegetables that aren't my favorites other ways!
Vegetables took forever to cook. I put it in for a lot longer than the recipe stated, and even tried to cook it longer after I had put it away in the fridge for the night. I wanted to like this, it was just too blah. Don't know what spices I would use, but it definitely needs something more. Probably won't make this again. Too much work for the taste.
I liked this a lot, very rich!
One word to describe this recipe: DELICIOUS! It was very easy and very tasty and I will make it many many times!
