  • ¼ cup butter
  • 4 yellow summer squash, thinly sliced
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced (Optional)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 sleeve buttery round crackers (such as Ritz®), crushed and divided
  • ¼ cup melted butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 1-quart baking dish.

Melt 1/4 cup butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir squash and onion in hot butter until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and cool vegetables.

Whisk sour cream and egg together in a large bowl. Add squash mixture, Cheddar cheese, and 1/2 of the crushed buttery round crackers; stir to combine and pour into prepared baking dish.

Stir remaining buttery round crackers and melted butter together in a bowl; spread over the top of squash mixture and gently pat down.

Bake in the preheated oven until crackers are lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
