We are pulling out all our Summer Squash Recipes so we can make the most of our garden right now. One of our favorites is this Squash Casserole with Green Chile.
We have yellow squash coming out of our ears right now from our garden. And this Squash Casserole with Green Chile is our all-time favorite of all our summer squash recipes. It has the perfect balance of flavor and is one great way to make the most out of our fresh yellow squash.
This amazing Squash casserole is loaded with cheeses and green chile. And it’s topped with a breadcrumb parmesan cheese crumble. It’s out of this world delicious. Even some of your picky eaters might ask for a second helping of this Squash Casserole.
Start off by thinly slicing 6 medium yellow squash and 1 large yellow onion. Heat butter in a large skillet or wok and saute the squash and onions until the onions are translucent.
Place cooked squash and onions in a large mixing bowl. Add the cheeses, sour cream, green chiles, salt, and pepper. Gently mix until well combined and pour into a lightly oiled 2-quart baking dish.
Mix the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and 1 tbsp melted butter in a small dish. Then sprinkle the crumb mixture on top of this casserole.
Bake, uncovered for 20 minutes until the topping is golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes prior to serving. Garnish with chopped parsley if desired.
We are thinking about making a few of these squash casseroles and freezing them. We love freezer meals and having a vegetable casserole in the freezer would be a treat this winter when the garden is gone. A bubbling pan of summer squash would go well with our Thanksgiving Turkey or our Christmas Baked Ham with Pineapple Glaze.
