This is "NOT" for the squmish

I have made this many times, I just use regular ingredients. I add onion and diced green pepper with the squash. I also add a small can of sliced water chestnuts. That adds a nice crunch. I add a topping of crushed Ritz crackers (one sleeve) and dot with butter before baking. My favorite!

Sounds very yummy. Plan to make soon

I have a similar recipe. Add about one half chopped green pepper to the squash when you boil it. If you like green pepper (which I normally don't but LOVE it in this squash) then add some. I also add a little chopped onion when boiling. We ALWAYS have this at Thanksgiving!!

Golden squash casserole is delicious

Please give a brief description, instead of Casserole #1, #2, etc., or Dessert #1, #2, etc. It is very time consuming to open the recipe before knowing if you'd even be interested in making it! Thank you!

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.
