Squash Casserole Recipe

Hey Y’all, today I am sharing one of our favorite year round sides dishes perfect for any BBQ or Fall Feast, my Squash Casserole.

JUMP TO RECIPE

So this year I had such a bountiful harvest of summer squash that I pulled out all kinds of squash recipes; from grilling, roasting and one of our all time favorites, my semi homemade squash casserole recipe.Growing Squash for Casserole Recipe JENRON DESIGNS I call my recipe, semi-homemade, because over the years I have found some quick steps to make this recipe come together a lot quicker for weeknight dinners. The original recipe was a little bit more time consuming, since it required making cornbread bread from scratch and allowing it sit for a few days to get a bit stale. Now I get the best of both worlds, a quick dinner that tastes like my homemade recipe.

Picking Squash JENRON DESIGNSSince this is for a quick weeknight dinner, we will be taking some help from a box cornbread stuffing mix as the filler. Honestly, I actually do like Stove Top Cornbread Stuffing mix, especially for fillers. It has a really good seasoning built in, and is a great time saver. However, I will say that I am not really keen on any of the others in their lineup, but the cornbread stuffing is always a staple in our house, for making things like crab cakes, Italian stuffed mushrooms, or even stuffed chicken. I really do use it all the time, when making cornbread from scratch is just too time consuming.Squash for Casserole Recipe JENRON DESIGNSThis recipe is a One Pan Wonder, made all in a Cast Iron skillet for easy stove to oven service. You will sauté your onion and sliced summer squash into the pan with 3 tbls of butter. Cook for about 3-5 minutes over high heat, to caramelize the onions.
