Smokey Squash Casserole

Have you ever been to a family reunion or church supper where there wasn’t a squash casserole? Have you ever not had a squash casserole featured on your Thanksgiving Day table? Nope, me either. Need to bring a dish to pass? Take this squash casserole with you next time. Made with smokey Gouda cheese and topped with a buttery cracker crumb crust, this casserole is sure to please. Grab a fork and dig into Smokey Squash Casserole.

Summer Squash

This recipe calls for summer squash but I have made this casserole with both zucchini and summer squash. Smokey Gouda cheese adds a wonderful smokey flavor to this delicious casserole. If you can’t find smokey Gouda cheese substitute regular shredded Gouda cheese, Swiss or a white sharp cheddar cheese. My favorite part of this casserole besides the cheese and summer squash is of course the crumb topping. Buttery crackers are tossed with melted butter to make a delicious, crunchy topping that you can top any casserole with, not just this one. Smokey Squash Casserole is a winner!
