Granny's Squash Casserole
A healthy variant of this recipe has become a Thanksgiving tradition in my family. I usually substitute low fat sour cream, Health Request cream of chicken, low fat butter, and half fat cheddar cheese (I use Cabot brand from Sam's Club). Great taste without the coronary!
I also buy matchstick carrots to save some time and often throw in other veggies or ingredients on hand. In the past, I've added mushrooms, red bell pepper (instead of pimento), fresh basil, and even blue cheese (leaving out some of the cheddar). As for the problems people mention with it being too runny, I've never had that problem. I always cook it about 10-15 minutes longer than the recipe states (I live at 4500 ft.) so maybe that's why it sets up better. Otherwise, I suggest adding a bit more sour cream or cheese. I suppose you could also add more cream of chicken but I don't love condensed soup mixes. Enjoy!
