This cheese-enhanced squash casserole is quick and easy to prepare and will please all the members of your family. My husband considers himself a squash casserole connoisseur. He loves this one!
- 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.
