My Mama’s Squash CasseroleSo Good You’ll Want to Take a Bath In It

I can’t help it. I’m a Southern girl, raised on my mama’s yummy cooking. Hers is good comfort food.

And while I AM committed to overhauling our family’s diet (and have been doing a pretty good job getting started this week), I refuse to totally abandon all my favorite dishes. I say, everything in moderation (I’m just working on remembering the definition of moderation).

So I cooked my mama’s squash casserole tonight. It was a wonderful complement to salmon.

Thought I’d share it with all of you.

Squash Casserole
4-5 yellow squash, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2-3 slices bacon
1/2 stick butter
1 egg, beaten
salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste

Boil squash, onion, and bacon until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain squash and onion and remove bacon. Melt butter over hot squash mixture. Add beaten egg and seasonings. Use hand mixer or food processor to blend until almost pureed (I like it with a few chunks of squash throughout). Pour mixture into square casserole dish. Bake at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes or until bubbly and browned around the edges.
