My Perfect Squash Casserole

I absolutely love squash. It’s my favorite vegetable by far. There are so many things you can do with it, and with the exception of straight up frying it – making into a casserole is my favorite 2nd favorite way to eat it.

When we first started gardening years ago, I experimented with several different recipes – none of which were bad, but none of which were perfect either. Β As with most of my other recipes, I dabbled around a bit in experimentations until I finally ended up with perfection.

To me, this recipe is absolute perfection. As far as squash casserole goes anyhows πŸ˜‰

The cheese crackers is the key here – don’t substitute them out for something else, trust me on this!
