Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 3 lbs yellow squash sliced ¼” thin
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Topping

  • 2 sleeves Ritz crackers crushed
  • 2 Tablespoons butter melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large saucepan or Dutch oven (you will need a lot of space so make sure it’s large enough to hold all of your squash!) melt 2 Tablespoons of butter over medium heat.

  6. Add drained squash/onion mixture and stir well.
  7. Evenly pour ingredients into an 11x7” baking dish and prepare your topping.

Topping

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine crushed Ritz crackers and melted butter. Stir until well-combined.
  2. Sprinkle cracker crumbs evenly over squash mixture in casserole dish.
  3. Transfer to 350F oven and bake 25-30 minutes.
  4. Serve warm. Enjoy!
