"A friend cooked us a similar dish and I was never able to get the original recipe. After a few years of trying, we've come up with this version and we like it even better than the first! A great way to get non-veggie lovers to indulge!"

summer squash, sliced
shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
ground black pepper
I followed a reviewer's suggestion and added some orange bell pepper. It tasted great, but I didn't like the giant glob of cheese on top. Next time, I will mix in more cheese with the eggs and sprinkle a thin layer of cheese on top along with some bread crumbs.
This is not a good recipe at all. Too much sugar and too much butter. I do not recommend it
This was very good and easy. I didn't add the sugar because the squash and onions are already sweet. Also, I also put a pinch of freshly ground nutmeg in the egg mixture before combining. The nutmeg really added a nice layer to the flavors.
This is VERY similar to the casserole I came up w/ only I didn't write down the measurements so I'm glad to see this one for next time. I opted to use a little more squash (5 small ones) and add a buttery bread crumb topping. My kiddos and hubby really liked it!I think adding finely diced green pepper would be good too. I ate the leftovers for breakfast the next morning and it was wonderful! If you add ham, it could make a great brunch dish! Thanks for posting!!
Great way to get veggies into my kids. When I told my family what we were having for dinner, they were concerned. They were pleasantly surprised. When you take it out of the oven, it will look runny. Don't worry, just let it set for the 15 minutes. Good as is, but very versatile.
Love this!! I'm a vegetarian and this is very filling and yummy!!!!!!!!
Very easy and flavorful recipe. I will definitely cook it again.
My husband and I thought this was delicious! I cut the butter down to 4 Tbsp, used 5 squash, and only used 2 cups shredded cheese. Mixed in most of the cheese, and just saved a little to top with. We did think it was very sweet. I will cut it down to 1 Tbsp of sugar next time. Serve with some green beans, and this is a perfect meatless dinner.
