This casserole makes a rich, creamy vegetable side dish. Stuffing mix may be used in place of the bread crumbs if you prefer. It tastes even better the next day for leftovers.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Place the squash and onion in a large saucepan with just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and cook until tender, about 10 minutes.

  • Transfer the squash, onion, and remaining liquid from the saucepan to a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish. Stir in chicken soup, sour cream, and melted butter. The liquid from the cooked squash should be enough so that mixture is slightly soupy. Sprinkle the bread crumbs over the top. The bread will absorb some of the liquid.

  • Bake, uncovered, for 30 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until browned and bubbly.

This recipe is excellent. I did make a couple of changes, I sauteed the onion and squash using butter instead of water. I also used herbed stuffing mix instead of the bread crumbs as suggested in the recipe. Will definitely make again and again. Read More

This recipe has a wonderful flavor but was a little watery. I think I'll cut down on the liquid next time. Read More

This is a good recipe but I do change a few things that I think make it better. I use ritz crackers instead of bread crumbs and I add cheese to it. Since I have a picky husband and 2 toddlers I have found that if I add cheese they will eat almost anything! lol A good way to get kids (and picky hubbys) to eat veggies. Read More

Like the first reviewer I used too much water to cook the squash and onion. The final product was soupy but it tasted very good! Next time I don't think I'll reserve any of the water. Read More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Had some reservations about it but when it came out of the oven ooooooh-la-la! It was excellent. We used butternut squash which gave it a sweetness offset by the sour cream. Wonderful side. Read More

I found this recipe to be watery and not creamy at all. I reduced the amount of water added to the 2 qt casserole dish and it was still too much. I would suggest draining off all excess liquid from the squash and replacing with milk. Read More

Turned out very good. I only used 3 squash but I kind of wish I had added in another perhaps one more small one. And I didnt have enough sour cream so I added some plain yogurt with it to make up the difference and that didnt hurt any. I also mixed a few handfuls of breadcrumbs into the mixture and only poured half the squash water into it-for those of you who complained your casseroles were watery that might help! mine wasn't runny at all. bread crumbs inside will help sop up the extra moisture:-) Read More

I must have put too much water when covering the squash before cooking. The final product was too runny. Other squash casseroles recipes that I have tried were much better. Read More
