I read the previous reviews and made a few changes based on what ppl were saying about it not having flavor. Instead of sauteing the squash in butter I cooked one slice of bacon in a non-stick pan first and then sauteed the squash in the bacon drippings. I also added a big pinch of ground thyme to the squash mixture. Instead of cooking the ground beef with jalapenos I stirred in a drained can of Rotel tomatoes after I mixed in the eggs and mayonaise. It was GREAT! Even my husband who does not like squash loved the casserole! (of course I didn't tell him it was in there!)
This was better than delicious! I realized when preparing the recipe that I was out of mayonnaise so substituted with sour cream - then realized I didn't have ground beef and substituted with ground turkey - both were - and wonderful. My Beloved and I ate over half the entire casserole and have set plans to finish it off tonight.
This was easy to make and very good. My husband loved it! It could use a tad more flavor but seasoning with a little salt and pepper will do the trick (and maybe garlic powder?). This is also a great Atkins/low-carb recipe -- the only thing I had to omit was the crackers from the top which I replaced with more cheddar cheese! A welcome change from your ordinary meat and noodles casserole.
This was the best squash casserole I have ever tasted. It was even a winner for those in my family who insist they don't like squash. And it is a terrific way to use up that bumper crop of squash from your garden. I bought disposable aluminum casseroles and made extras for the freezer too!
I have a finicky 14 year old daughter that will not eat vegetables so I am always trying to come up with creative ways to sneak them in. This worked. Instead of slicing the squashed I grated it in the food processor to make it even less noticeable. I also substituted 1 can of diced green chilies instead of the jalapeno's because my family doesn't like things too spicy.
Great recipe!. My 9 yr old loved it!. I did not have jalapenos so I added about 1 tsp thyme and 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning for a kick. Also added a little pepper/garlic salt. Also used panko instead of crackers and drizzled butter over them. Thanks Liz!
Needed something... I know! Flavor! Claims to be spicy NOT even! It sounded like it would be really tasty (love casseroles) but was very bland. Leftovers went straight to the trash. Won't make this again. Good dish for fussy kids bad dish for adults.
Can't eat spicy food? I made this recipe without the jalapenos using Italian-seasoned bread crumbs for the topping instead of crackers. I was afraid it might be too bland but it is now a new family favorite!
