I asked my husband what he wanted for Father's day dinner, and he said squash casserole. He's from Arkansas, I'm from New York..so needless to say, I had a "are you kidding me?" moment. Having nothing to compare the taste to, I was reluctant to make it. But then realized I could go to my favorite website and find one that would come close to what Granny used to make. After reading every single recipe,and all the reviews, this one sounded the best.
Wow, is all I got to say. I have never had this before. Never even bought squash till yesterday. I thought it was totally amazing. Very very tasty. My 5 yr old even liked it. I followed the recipe exactly as written, but didn't use the whole bunch of onions..(What is a bunch anyway? is it the whole bag,and what if my bunch was bigger than one used in this recipe? would I then be using too much?..yea, I was going nutty.So I knocked it down to half, and it came out awesome. Thanks for a wonderful recipe,and for saving Father's day!
I wanted to like this casserole, but, the flavor just didn't suite our taste. We prefer our squash a little more firm, so, I only boiled the squash about 8 minutes and it was a perfect texture. I also thought a stick of butter would be too greasy for us, so, I reduced the butter to 4 tbsp which was plenty. The problem for us was the sugar. It was too sweet for us. Instead of enhancing the flavor it just seemed an odd combination for our taste. It seemed that most people liked the casserole as is, but, if you prefer a more savory dish like us - I would leave out the sugar.
This recipe is so good. It tastes just like the casserole at Black Eyed Pea! I did do one thing different though - instead of putting the crackers and cheese on top, I mixed them in with the rest of the ingredients and baked, it was sooooo good!
Good old fashioned recipe, just what I was looking for. I used sliced Vidalia onions instead of the green onions (just a southern thing, I guess!), and everyone loved it. I'll use this again! Thanks.
This is a really good squash casserole. My whole family enjoyed it. I will use this again.
Delicious! Prepared as directed. Definitely a keeper. Thank you for sharing.
I've made this several times for my father with his fresh squash from the garden. He loves it. I've also recommended the recipe to family and friends. I was able to put the whole recipe in a 9 inch pan instead of the 13x9 pan and it came out great.
