Summer Squash Bake

This is a wonderful recipe. I made it for Thanksgiving, the whole family loved it. I used Ritz crackers in place of the bread crumbs. It is rich but very good.



  • 1 lb. yellow summer squash, chopped
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or
  • margarine, melted
  • pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar
  • cheese


In a saucepan, combine the squash, water, onion and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until squash is tender. Remove from the heat; cool.

Stir in the egg, bread crumbs, butter and pepper. Transfer to a greased 1-qt. baking dish; sprinkle with cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until heated through and the cheese is melted.

What a yummy and easy recipe for summer squash! I did make a couple of changes; I didn't have bread crumbs on hand, so I used some dry stove top stuffing crumbs, which made it savory and delightfully seasoned! I also sauteed the squash and onion in a touch of butter and oil, instead of boiling it in water. I added a bit of water to the egg.


This was really tasty for a yellow squash dish (which tends to lack flavor). I did add a half teaspoon of Old Bay seasoning and cut out half the cheese. Excellent!

This is easy to make since it uses instant rice.


  • 1/2 cup instant rice
  • 1 cup V8 juice or tomato juice (I prefer the V8)
  • 1/2 - 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cups zucchini, cubed
  • 1 ripe tomato, cut in small chunks
  • 8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • Ad

  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. basil


Cover rice with V8 juice while browning hamburger, onion, and spices. Drain off liquid from hamburger. Mix all ingredients together and bake in a 350 degree F oven for 45 minutes.
