Mom's Squash Casserole
A delicious way to use squash. Great as a covered dish for parties.

This was a delicious casserole! I modified it a bit to suit the tastes of my family members. I used a seasoning blend by Pictsweet that has chopped onions, green and red bell peppers, celery, and garlic salt. I sauteed this blend in a little butter while cutting up the squash. I added the squash and water to the sauteed veggies and cooked together for 15 minutes. I substituted cream of celery for the cream of mushroom and added a little cajun seasoning (Tony Chachere's). The casserole came out beautiful and tasted awesome.Read More

Yum! I sauted the squash and onion with some garlic powder and topped the casserole with Italian seasoned bread crumbs and a few sprays of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter instead of croutons. This was easy to make and I'm sure we'll be having it again soon.
Fantastic recipe!! I lightened it considerably by using Egg Beaters instead of eggs, reducing the cheese to 1 cup (and using 2% milk cheddar cheese), and using just 1/2 cup bread crumbs instead of the croutons. I also found I was out of mushroom soup....I used 98% fat free Broccoli Cheese soup instead and it was fabulous!! Definately a keeper!
This is a GREAT way to cook a LOT of squash. It has a good consistency and it was VERY easy to make. My only suggestion would be to add in salt and pepper to taste as ingredients. Also, a little bit of garlic salt gave it an extra seasoning boost.
Wonderful, wonderful casserole. I used zuchinni and yellow squash. I added black pepper to the soup mixture (suggested by previous reviewer). I used a four-cheese blend instead of all cheddar. Lastly, I mistakenly bought mushroom soup with roasted garlic--I love garlic and the casserole was just wonderful. My finnicky teenager loves it too!
Very good combination of flavors, however, still just a little bland. I added a little garlic powder, italian seasoning and seaasoned salt to my individual helping. It really gave the dish a pick-me-up.
I didn't like the croutons...I think I'll make it again but use cornbread and make it like a dressing.
Excellent recipe. This is one squash casserole I will be making over abd over again.
I was looking for a new recipe for summer squash and happened upon this one. Me, my husban and my 3 year old daughter loved it! It was gone in one night and I am making it again tomorrow. Thanks
I added black pepper and garlic powder into the soup and topped with french onions instead... good
Saute your veg, don't boil. Add some seasoning. Great side dish.
I was looking for a quick and easy vegetarian casserole recipe and this fit the bill perfectly. I used a mixture of zucchini and pattypan squash instead of yellow squash and substituted mozzarella cheese for the cheddar. It did come out a little soggy since the squash released moisture during the cooking, but I also added an extra egg so that may have contributed as well. Instead of the croutons, I topped it with Romano cheese and panko breadcrumbs. I served the casserole with a slotted spoon so it wouldn't drip, and the crunch of the panko was a perfect complement to the softness of the squash. Overall, it was very good.
Excellent Basic Squash Casserole Recipe. Very easy and quick.
A WINNER! I love squash casserole & have been looking for a great recipe for years. It’s hard to find decent recipe without sour cream (as I’m not a big fan). I have tried similar recipes without the egg. THE EGG MAKES THE DIFFERENCE! It adds great texture to the casserole! My changes include: adding ½ cup grated carrot for color, stewing the squash, carrots, & onion in butter and chicken broth, adding 3-4 dashes of pepper sauce and garlic powder to the mix for depth of flavor, and using bread crumbs dotted with butter on top instead of croutons. SUPER DUPER YUMMY! Try it!
very good. made as is.
Mmmm, so good! This was the first time I've had squash casserole so I was nervous! But I am so pleased! I love it. This recipe is excellent, I will not search for another and I'll be making it many more times. Thank you!
Fabulous! I made it a little bit healthier by doubling the squash. It's great with any summer squash. I used crookneck, zucchini, patty pan, 8 ball, opo, and chinese silk squash in mine. Also, sharp cheddar and seasoned bread crumbs really bring out the flavor. Yummy!
I thought this tasted alright. The only change I made was subbing a cup of litely buttered ritz type crackers for the croutons, because I don't care for casseroles with bread crumb or crouton toppings. I also used lite cheddar and a little less than what was called for as cheese does not come in 2 cup bags anymore I realized and that is what I had bought. This will all get eaten up, but I personally thought it was kind of mushy, and it doesn't reheat very well either.
Very good recipe. I used Cream of Celery soup and Monterrey/Colby Cheese. The result was Wonderful!
I added salt, pepper, garlic powder and used seasoned bread crumbs because I did not have seasoned croutons. Excellent. Will make again and again. Thanks.
This was a different twist to the regular cheesy squash casseroles I've made before. I used 1 cup of "Cream of Mushroom Soup I" instead of the canned stuff, 1 large yellow squash, 1/2 onion, and the rest of the recipe as is.
I thought this was OKAY, but I won't make it again. I do have to say, though, that my husband enjoyed it.
Well I had a neighbor friend give us a lot of squash, I had no clue what to do with it all. Well I made this last night. My husband said it was the best thing of the whole dinner. I made it like it should of been made but added salt and pepper and garlic. But I do that with most of my cooking. I also mixed a few of the croutons in the mix. All in all I was suprised squash could taste so good!!
I was not impressed at all! You might want to specify the size of the onion.
This was a great casserole recipe. Good for church potlucks. I didn't have a full 2 cups of cheddar so I used 1 cup of cheddar and 1 cup of fiesta blend cheese. I also didn't have any croutons so I used crushed townhouse crackers with melted butter to make a topping--so good. I might add chopped green chilis next time
Mixed reviews for this dish at my house, the funny thing was the reason my son and I did not like this was the same reason my husband and mom did like this, cheese & crouton crust.
This was pretty good. I added some garlic salt and pepper to my steamed squash and onions. I only steamed the vegetables for 10 minutes and next time will steam for only about 7 minutes because I do like them a little crispier. The croutons were pretty good but we do prefer the chicken flavored stuffing mix.
We simply luh-uhved this dish. The only thing we did different was added a few pinches of garlic salt to the squash and onion mix(as recommended by other reviewers). Oh yeah, we made sure to drain it well afterwards(also recommended by other reviewers). Thanx JTJW. Cheers :o)
Great recipe. Will make again and again.
Excellent! I'm so happy to find a new way to make squash. I make it all the time and the whole family loves it!
HOLY MOLY! THIS WAS AMAZING! It was so good that i passed out the recipe to everyone at work! SO SO GOOD! I have this recipe memorized now and make it as often as i can! YUM! i tried a different recipe to switch things up- and it was not nearly as good...
This is really nice, the taste is good. The kids somehow had a problem with the chunks of squash, they usually have a problem of some sort anyway with something new. They will get used to it.
I needed something quick and easy to take to a company luncheon. This was a big hit! Several people asked for the recipe.
This is "awesome" it reminded me of my grandmothers recipe but I could never figure out her ingredients. I added 3 tablespoons of brown sugar. The family loved it.
This recipe needs a little something extra to give it some zing. I steamed the squash and onion in the microwave in advance so it was very quick to throw this together for a church potluck on Sunday morning. I will definitely make this again, but will likely add minced garlic, salt, pepper, onion powder etc. to add another dimension to the flavor. This recipe will be perfect for a stress free holiday side dish. Thank you!
Excellent! I ended up creating a cream of chicken base instead of using cream of mushroom soup. I also used bread crumbs instead of croutons on top since I did not have any on hand. Still game out great! I will definitely make this again!
I liked this okay. I used yellow squash and zuchinni both and also added a little onion and garlic for some more flavor. I enjoyed the taste of this a lot but wasn't crazy about the texture. I think it's the eggs that I don't care for. I will make this again but will try adding either more cream of soup or some sour cream.
I use seasoned stuffing mix in mine instead of the croutons. To make this super easy, you can buy 2-3 cans (depending on how squashy you want it to taste) of squash with vidalia onions already included in the can.
great recipe....tastes just like my mom's recipe. i did add salt and pepper though. will make again!
My mom actually makes this all the time! Very good :)
I Loved This! I didn't have croutons so I used a combination of ground Ritz crackers & seasoned bread crumbs. It's a keeper. Thank-you.
This is SO delicious! It was like a crustless quiche. We didn't have any seasoned croutons, so we used plain stuffing-type bread cubes, and sprinkled some seasoning on top (oregano, basil, black pepper, garlic & onion powders). This is probably supposed to be a side dish, but we liked it so much that it was the whole meal (and a few extra helpings, LOL).
This was a great dish. I did make a few changes. I used both yellow and zucchini squash chopped up and sauted with a little butter along with the onion. I used cream of broccoli and cheese soup and crushed up about 1 cup of croutons and mixed them in. I used cheddar and monterey cheese. It will be a regular in our house.
great way to serve squash! i used half yellow squash and half zucchini - made for a "pretty" dish, as well as tasty! will definitely make again!
just the best!!!!
This was wonderful. I did however, make some changes. I left out the eggs because I don't like that texture. I added some garlic and pepper and a little onion flakes to mixture before putting over squash and onion. For topping I used crushed crackers and shredded cheese. YUMMM I'm wondering what it would be like to add some green pepeprs.
My family loved this. I didn't have an onion so I added I package of dry onion soup mix instead. Very good!
Family loved this. Only suggestions would be drain squash VERY well or you get water in the bottom of casserole and I am going to mix the soup mixture with the squash mixture instead of just ladeling it over the top. It didn't make it all the way to the bottom on its own.
Really good. I didn't have any cheese but it was still a good dish. I am sure it would be even better with the chesse added. This one will be keeper!!
My son thought this dish was going to be "gross," but he loved it as much as the rest of us did. He even had seconds! Thanks for sharing.
We absolutely loved it. The croutons make it special.
was a GREAT recipe. I added mushrooms, diced ham, and minced garlic. And put sliced tomatoes on top with more cheese and crouton in the last 5min.
Very good recipe. Even my husband (not a big fan of squash) enjoyed this dish. I used yellow squash and zuchinni squash plus I added a bit of salt and pepper to the cheese/soup/egg mixture. I didn't have any croutons SO I used seasoned bread crumbs mixed with 2T of melted butter...then sprinkled that on the top. Yum. This is a nice recipe to keep on hand when you are looking for ways to use your squash. The leftovers taste GREAT reheated the next day too!
I made this wonderful casserole for my non squash eating family and they loved it! It will be a summer staple on our menu!
Everyone at the party had seconds and wanted the recipe, a big hit!
This is such a great recipie!! I have been using it for over a year and my family never gets tired of it. I did tweek the recipie by mixing the squash with the cheese mixture before putting it in the baking dish.
followed recipe exactly and was all gone in less than half hour (2 older brothers, 1 little, 1 older sister, boyfriend and myself.. =)
Best I've had yet. Thanks!
Tried this new dish and was very pleased. Definitely will cook it again.
was a great dish, even our small children ate it and wanted 2nds, 2 thumbs up thank you
It was not a big hit at the Thanksgiving table. I don't think I would make this again.
Smells delicious! I added chopped mushrooms, and since I didn't have croutons, I topped it with fried onions. Thanks for sharing!
This was good, but I think our family just prefers our squash to be lightly steamed with other veggies and served as is. Just a preference, because we love a similar recipe to this that uses chicken instead of the squash, but we serve our veggies on the side with it. It's still worthy of a four star, though, because it was good overall. :)
We loved it. I sauted the veggies like some suggested & added fresh mushrooms. I cut back on the cheese & used only one egg. Also added one carrot. Instead of croutons, I used 3/4 cup ritz crackers.
Very easy, delicious and my guests loved it - several asked for the recipe!
Great smooth, soft casserole with good flavor. I used sharp cheddar and Italian seasoned bread crumbs with butter, sprinkled with a little extra Italian seasoning.
Just like my mother=in=laws! - AWESOME
This was a good blend of flavors, but just a little drier than I had expected. I might try adding a little milk to moisten just a bit before cooking. Overall, the casserole held up well and was easy to prepare. I did add a little garlic powder, but still seemed to be missing something. Still good. Thanks.
Wow! This was amazing! I had all this yellow squash and did not know what to do with it! I looked on this site and thought that this recipe sounded easy and good! Excellent choice. I made slow cooked ribs and light salad. Dinner was a BIG hit! Thanks!
One word....AWESOME! Everyone loved it. My sister said it was cheesy, squashy goodness! *I used seasoned bread crumbs because I didn't have croutons and I sauteed the squash & onions and added a few Tbsp. of water. Next time I make this I'll use more cheese just because I'm a cheese-lover. This recipe is a keeper!
Tried this dish after growing yellow squash for the first time. Didn't know what I was going to do with all the squash. Now I know. This casserole is great and a great with anything else you might fix with it
This was good though had to make changes because of not having mushroom soup on hand. Instead made a white sauce from 2 tbs. butter and 1/4 flour, liquid from small can of mushrooms & and little soy milk until it was the consistancy of canned soup, also added garlic and onion powder. Steamed the squash in the microwave for 5 minutes, twice, draining after each time heated. The squash was still a bit crunchy, and next time will try it for 15 min. in microwave. After putting steamed vegetables in baking dish, spread topping on top. Next time will mix in with the vegetables, as the flavor from sauce and cheese would have been throughout the dish. We did enjoy this and will make it again as posted.
Really great! I added some garlic but that is the only change and it was tasty. Next time I am going to try zuccini :)
I found this recipe to be VERY BLAND, LACKING FLAVOR and tasting like cream of mushroom soup. I made some of the recommended changes (sauting veggies, added carrots and used ritz crackers) and still found it to be a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT
Delicious! I don't even like squash and I loved this! My grandmother sent us home with a large amount of squash, and I needed to make something with it, since I didn't want it to go to waste. It is absolutely wonderful. I did like a previous reviewer and added salt and a very liberal amount of pepper. Wonderful. Thank you!
An alternative to grilling squash...especially when you are getting it from everyone that has a garden.
This was great except for one thing. The croutons. Don't get me wrong I like croutons but on top of this otherwise perfectly good dish was just wrong. I think I'll make it again but instead try instant stuffing as one reviewer did or maybe crushed ritz crackers mixed with butter. But not croutons. Thanks. Kate
My family loved it. Good recipe.
This was the first casserole I ever made and it was delicious! A great and easy recipe!
I love this recipe! I've had a lot of really beautiful summer squash from my garden this year, and no idea what to do with so much. So I started searching for a recipe that's would utilize a lot at once. And this recipe was perfect for that purpose. Like other reviewers, I did add in my own spices. And instead of boiling, I sautéed the squash and onions in a little bit of extra virgin olive oil, with lots of garlic powder, and some seasoning salt and pepper, until it was tender but still crisp. And after baking it covered for 25 minutes, when I pulled it out to add the breadcrumbs, it seemed a bit dry to me. So I stirred in about 1/4 cup of milk, added a nice layer of Italian bread crumbs to the top, then stuck it back in the oven, uncovered, for an additional 25 mins. It turned out creamy, and delish!! The squash wasn't soggy at all! I'm guessing reviewers that had issues with theyre squash turning out soggy probably over cooked it in the first step. My husband who typically doesn't care for any kind of squash raved about it! Even took some to work in his lunch the day after! My whole family loved it! Thanks for a great recipe! I'll definitely be making it many more times in the future!
Weird texture, the eggs I think...and not that tasty.
A neighbor had brought us a bunch of squash, and I was getting a little tired of stir-frying it. I tried this recipe, and lo and behold, even my picky kids liked it! I don't like mushrooms, so I used cream of celery soup instead. This was a delicious way to get my kids to eat squash. We got two meals out of it, too!
We really liked this dish. I did leave out the melted butter on top and substituded it for a can of broccoli cheese soup and then the bread crumbs on top of that.
This is a good casserole, but it is not as good as the one I lost the recipe for. This recipe is close, but I used ritz crackers instead of croutons as that is what was in my old recipe. I think it would be better if the soup was mixed in with the squash.
Steamed all the veggies together. Whipped 3 eggs on the kitchen aide for 8 min. Little boys of extra seasoning and cooked outside on the traeger which never fails!
This was pretty good. It's really bland though. It needs to be kicked up a few notches. Next time I think I'll mince some garlic with the squash instead of onions.
I just took it out of the oven and my kids flocked to the kitchen. I was short on yellow squash so I added zucchini too. I added some canned potatoes as well. So I can only rate by how I made it. I doubled the recipe. Also, I topped with bread crumbs because my salad eating daughter refused to give up her croutons lol.
I had to change the number of servings to 4. I followed the recipe set up after the change but when it was done, the ranch and mayo made the consistency too thick. The flavor of the ranch dressing was overbearing. I did not like it at all but will try again with the original amount of servings to see if it makes a difference.
so, so, so yummy.... I want to make some right now just thinking of this.
Very easy to put together. A bit too moist at completion but rather tasty. Could use some more herbal additions; will have to experiment with that.
It's comfort food. I over did it with the garlic, and used several types of squash. Also used bread crumbs, and 1 egg. It's very good dish. Will make again.
Not mind-blowing but a good, satisfactory side dish and a good way to use up squash from the garden. I lightened it up with egg whites (instead of whole eggs) and reduced fat cheddar cheese. Like other reviews I added some garlic salt and Italian seasoning for extra flavor. I also had to use break crumbs in liue of croutons but that worked out OK as well.
I did not make any changes and yes I will make it again and again!
I made this and followed some of the advice of others and sautéed the squash with a tablespoon of butter and the onion and added a clove of garlic instead of boiling. I used butter and garlic croutons to put on top and it was delicious! My husband and I loved it. Followed the rest of the directions.
Made the recipe as is and we really enjoyed it!!
This was a great dish, however I think I will use fried onions next time instead of croutons!
So easy and very very good
