Squash Casserole With Bacon

User Rating 4 Star Rating (1 Review)


Bacon adds a little smoky flavor to this tasty summer squash casserole. 


  • 4 strips bacon
  • 5 medium yellow summer squash, or 32 ounces frozen sliced summer squash
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


Slice squash about 1/4-inch thick; cook in boiling salted water until tender. Fry bacon until crisp; drain on paper towels. Crumble bacon and set aside. In bacon drippings, brown onions. Add butter, squash, eggs, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until eggs are cooked.

In a 2-quart casserole dish, place half of the squash mixture. Sprinkle with half of the crumbled bacon and half of the shredded cheese.

Top with remaining squash mixture, bacon, and cheese. Bake at 350° until hot and cheese is melted.

Serves 4 to 6.

Anything is good with bacon, but squash with bacon is heavenly!! This was the first time I cooked with summer squash so I followed the recipe to a T. Next time I will peel the squash and take out the innards. Awesome side dish or by itself on a chilly rainy day! Good ol' fashioned comfort food.....
