How to make Slap Your Mama It’s So Delicious Southern Squash Casserole
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.
Step 2: After washing the squash, slice it into small medallions. If the squash is larger, dice it into smaller pieces. Into a large bowl, place the squash.
Step 3: Place the soup, mayo, eggs, cheese, onions, salt, and pepper in another bowl. Mix well until blended. Then, pour this over the squash. Mix well.
Step 4: Into the casserole dish, empty the contents of the bowl.
Step 5: While in “tubes”, crush the crackers. To avoid mess, I suggest wrapping them in a dish towel and crush using a rolling pin/meat tenderizer. Or you can place them instead in a resealable plastic bag.
Step 6: Into a bowl, pour the crushed crackers. In the microwave, melt the butter and stir this into the crackers until moist.
Step 7: Drizzle the crackers-butter mixture over the casserole.
Step 8: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes, covered in foil, or until bubbly and the top is brown. Remove the cover and bake for 20 minutes more or until the top is golden brown.
You can throw a cup of chopped cooked chicken into the casserole if desired. To make this casserole a meal, you can also add 2 c of cooked rice.
