Squash Casserole

What is Elisabeth looking at?

It must be really good for her to sneak a taste while my back is turned.

Looks like she thought it was awful tasty. She's licking her fingers!

As I heard the camera click, I heard Emma say, "I got it for the blog!" I turned around and sure enough Ellie was licking her fingers. What is it you ask? My squash casserole. Which is a favorite around here. I get requests from every member of the family for it. They will eat and entire dish in one setting. I have never had a person try it who didn't love it. And guess what? It is easy, cheap and quick.

And because I love you all so much, I will tell you my top secret recipe.

Squash Casserole Chili Pepper style

  1. In a casserole dish big enough for your family, stir together equal parts of sour cream and cream of mushroom, cream of asparagus, cream of celery, cream of whatever soup you like. Oh, if you don't have sour cream you can use cream cheese, mayo or milk. My mom uses yogurt but I don't care for that flavor.
  2. Now stir in some cheese if you have it and care for it. Whatever you have on hand is good.
  3. Add some chopped zucchini, whatever type of squash you like or have on hand (frozen works great, too) and some onions if you like them. We do. Bell peppers would be yummy, too.
  4. Stir it all up. If you have some stuffing mix you can stir that in too. Or some bread crumbs. Or just leave it as is. It is good no matter how you mix it.
  5. If you like cheese a lot, we do, add some cheese over the top.
  6. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes until bubbly.
You will be amazed at how quickly this disappears!


  1. Yummy....I may have to make a road trip. My hubby cooks squash in a frying pan with onions and few red potatoes. After it is done, we sprinkle shredded cheese on it. We love squash, too.
    Hope things are going well for you. I know you are excited about your sister's new upcoming arrival.
    Blessings, hugs, and prayers, andrea

  3. Kat,

    Not sure this will go over in my house hold as we have specific vegetable phobics in our home.
