As we are preparing to move, in an effort to try to clean out my pantry I went through and pulled things out that I thought just might go together and when added to the squash would make a great meal. Wow, was I right! This dinner was fabulous. My husband asked for it a second night. I knew then that the squash was beginning to make mush of his brain. Just kidding honey.
Anyway, here it is. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Crabby Cheesy Squash Casserole
3 pounds yellow squash, sliced
1 onion, chopped
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup milk
8 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 pound crab meat, in chunks
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 cup French's Fried Onions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a saucepan, saute the onions in the butter or margarine until done; add milk; stir constantly over a low heat. Mix in cheese, cornstarch, salt and pepper. Stir until sauce thickens.
Place sliced squash in a large casserole dish; cover it with the crab. Pour your sauce over the top; sprinkle with the bread crumbs and top with the fried onions.
Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes or until squash is done.
