Summer Squash Casserole

Another tasty recipe given to me by my mother-n-law who was born and raised in North Carolina. I love yellow squash but I love it even more in this casserole. Summer is all about squash and this is a delish dish to make. When I went to the grocery store this week I was happy to see that the squash was on sale for .99 cents a pound so I had to make this for my family.


2-3 pounds of yellow squash, cut up
2 carrots, grated
1 onion, diced
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
tub of sour cream
1 box of chicken flavored stuffing
1 stick of butter


In a large pot of boiling water, add your squash, carrots and onions and cook at a boil for 8 minutes. Drain water well from veggies and put into a large mixing bowl. With a hand blender, blend all veggies together, I like it well blended but a little chunky. Add the sour cream and cream of chicken soup. With a spoon, mix well. Add a pinch or two of salt and a few dashes of pepper. In a separate microwavable bowl, melt a stick of butter and then add your package of stuffing to it and mix well. Take half of the stuffing mix and mix into the veggie mix. Put veggies into a large baking dish or two small baking dishes and top the remaining stuffing on top, cover with foil and bake at 350 degree for 35-40 minutes.

Ha! i just stumbled across your blog today and what should i see - a recipe that I grew up eating! Love the squash casserole. Pretty easy to make it vegetarian, too, if needed. I grew up in Winston-Salem, NC - perhaps that's why I know this recipe so well.
