I had only 3 summer squash to use up so I halved the recipe. But I still used an entire onion, which I carmelized in olive oil instead of steaming. I highly recommend carmelizing the onion and also leaving the squash al dente instead of mushy. I also used the whole egg. I didn't have a "sleeve" of Ritz crackers so I had to estimate with club crackers. Since I had used a whole egg, I used enough cracker crumbs to make the whole thing come together. I also used Cheddar cheese with black pepper which made the whole thing spicier. I really enjoyed this recipe and will make again. Thanks!
Delicious and easy recipe! I sliced the squash and onions in the food processor and then placed in my microwavable rice/vegetable steamer and microwaved on high for 10 minutes. I added 1/4 teaspoon of salt and freshly grated nutmeg. I crushed the crackers in the food processor and added 1/4 cup of butter. I added 1/2 of the crackers to the filling and 1/2 were sprinkled on top along with part of the cheese. Beautiful golden color was achieved after 25 minutes. Thank you Northerngirl for sharing your mother-in-law's recipe.
I didn't pre-cook squash. I added slices of pre-cooked Italian sausage and a grated carrot to make it a complete meal and used Club crackers. My husband loved it and said it was one of the best 'from the garden' recipes I've ever made! The dogs eat the leftovers and devoured them.
This was surprising good for as easy as it is to prepare! I will definitely keep this one in our rotation. It is very good with yellow squash one zucchini or combination of both. I'm wondering if anyone has tried it using chayote. It sounds like that would be really good too and recipes using chayote squash are difficult to find. Thanks for posting this! Great dish!
