Notes

  • This cheesy zucchini casserole uses a 2-step cooking process; first you boil the diced squash in salted water, and then you assemble the casserole and bake in the oven.
  • You can use all zucchini or all squash in this baked squash casserole if you'd like or use a combination of the two.
  • Substitute fresh, diced onion for onion flakes, if desired. 
  • Any type of crackers can be used for the crunchy topping.  We typically make this squash casserole with Ritz. 1 1/2 cups is approximately one sleeve of butter crackers. 
  • The melted butter and cracker topping makes a delicious crunchy topping.  We use a similar concept in 4 Ingredient Broccoli Casserole. Kids go nuts for it!
  • We typically make this in the summer when we have squash coming out of our ears, but you can find squash all year long at the grocery store.
