Golden Squash Casserole

(3 Votes)

Around our Test Kitchen, we think everything tastes better with a bit of cheese! Of course, when it comes to lighter recipes, we turn to reduced-fat cheese varieties to add that creamy goodness! That's just what you'll find in our Golden Squash Casserole, so go ahead and dig in!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 pounds (about 7) yellow summer squash, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup liquid egg substitute
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 2-quart baking  dish with cooking spray.
2. In a large saucepan, add squash with enough water to cover; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook 8 to 10 minutes, or just until squash is tender. Drain well.
3. In a large bowl, combine squash, 1/2 cup cheese, mayonnaise, egg substitute, salt, and pepper. Spoon into prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
4. Bake 30 minutes, or until golden and heated through.

do you peel the squash ?

I wouldn't think don't need to peel the squash as the skin of summer squash is very tender. Same with zucchini which would be a good alternative to use

No, you don't peel the squash. Summer squash does not need peeling. :)

Can I use eggs instead of egg substitute? If so how many eggs would I need? Can zucchini be used instead of yellow squash?

Yes,you can use regular eggs. 1/4 cup egg substitute equals one egg, so you'll need 2.

Hello! Yes, you can use 2 eggs instead of egg substitute, and you can use zucchini instead of summer squash if you prefer. Enjoy!

very good

Thank you so much for your diabetic friendly dishes. I love yellow squash. I definitely will try it this weekend.
