Squash Casserole is a fun, easy way to eat yellow squash. It is quick to whip up and can be used as a delicious side dish or the ultimate comfort food main course.
Prepare a 9x13 inch baking dish by spraying it well with cooking spray or buttering it well. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Prepare the yellow squash by washing it up, trimming the ends and slicing it ¼ inch thick.
Chop the onion or cut it into thin slices. In a large skillet heat the butter over medium to medium-high heat and add the squash and onion. Cook until the squash is just tender, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
While the squash is cooking add the eggs, milk, salt, garlic powder, cayenne pepper if using, and black pepper and stir well to combine.
Add the cheese to the egg mixture and stir to combine. Crush the crackers so that they are fine crumbs. When the squash is done spread it evenly in the bottom of your prepared pan.
Pour the egg mixture evenly over the squash.Top with an even layer of the crushed cracker crumbs.
Bake for 45 minutes until the top is golden brown and the center doesn't jiggly. Allow the dish to rest for 5 minutes before serving hot or warm.
