Summer Squash Casserole



  • 2 small yellow summer squash, sliced
  • 1/4 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 mayonnaise*
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • pepper to taste
  • 1/4 shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons cornflakes, crushed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons butter, melted


In small saucepan, combine squash, onion and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cover with water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 2 minutes or until squash is crisp-tender. Drain.
In bowl, beat egg, mayonnaise, sugar, pepper and remaining salt until blended. Stir in cheese and squash mixture. Transfer to greased 2 cup baking dish. Toss cornflakes and butter; sprinkle over top. Bake, uncovered at 350° 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.

Onion and Cheddar cheese perk up the rich flavor of summer squash in this comforting casserole. A crispy cornflake-crumb topping adds a little crunch.
