Here's one way to get the kids to eat those vegetables! :)  Be sure to visit us at Country Harvest Greenhouse to get local yellow squash when in season!

2 pounds of yellow squash (about 4 cups)
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 sleeve of Ritz Crackers (about 35 crackers)
1 cup cheddar cheese
2 eggs
3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Lightly steam squash and onion in steamer basket* for about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
In medium bowl, combine cracker crumbs and cheese.

In large bowl, add drained squash and onion and gently fold in 1/2 the cracker/cheese mixture.
In a small bowl, whisk together egg and milk, then add to squash mixture.

Melt 1/2 cup of butter. Add half the melted butter to the squash mixture. Season with salt and pepper.
Spread squash mixture into 9 x 13″ baking dish. Top with remaining crackers and pour remaining butter over dish.
