The recipe is for a delicious, basic, and very easy squash casserole. Years ago there was 'home cooking' restaurant in the Atlanta area called Aunt Fanny's Cabin and, though I only went there once MANY years ago, I don't remember if I had this casserole or not. But years later, a lady I worked with brought it to a work pot luck dinner and I fell in love, and she shared the recipe with me. Here you go ...
Aunt Fanny's Cabin Squash Casserole
- In large pot, boil 3 pounds chopped yellow squash with a little salt until tender.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Drain squash, and put in a large bowl with 1 egg.
- Mash up squash with the egg.
- Add: 1/2 stick butter or margarine, 1 Tablespoon sugar, 1/2 +/- (to taste) chopped onions, dash black pepper, 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- Mix all ingredients well.
- Place in 2 quart casserole dish (I use 9 x 13).
- Sprinkle top with another 1/2 cup bread crumbs and drizzzle with another 1/2 stick melted butter or margarine.
- Bake at 350 degrees about 45 minutes or until bubbly in center.
This is such an easy recipe, and can be made a day ahead up to the baking and refrigerated until you are ready to bake it the next day.
If you make this, I would love to hear how you like it, so please come back and leave a comment!
