BEST Squash Casserole Ever!

Poooh, poooh! Just blowing a lil dust off the keyboard. :)
We decided to put out a small garden just in case the house doesn't sell. Ha, it's not even ready to sell, yet, but this is a happy post so movin' on to another subject...we have squash comin' out our ears. Well, okay, just have a lot of squash. (It's no wonder the English language is difficult to learn for those with a different first language.) Anyhoo, I had the ingredients to throw this together so here's a new dish to share with you wonderful peeps.  And make no mistake, the sausage in this casserole is perfectly complimented by the other ingredients.  Enjoy.

Y'all-Come-Back-Now Squash Casserole

4-5 cups yellow squash, cooked and drained
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 lb. hot breakfast sausage, crumbled and cooked (I use Tennessee Pride, of course;)
1 can cream of chicken or mushroom soup (homemade "canned" soups are healthier)
1 med. onion, chopped
3 tbs. butter

Fry sausage just till done; drain, and set aside. Saute onions in butter. Boil cubed squash about five minutes, drain. Mix all ingredients together and pour into a casserole dish - add a few sprinkles of water if it tries to clump. Bake 20 minutes at 350 F.

Serves ... let's see now =  2 over eaters, 4-6 regular peeps, or 8 skinny minnies.
Seriously, it's very good. We had it for supper last night with green beans and other vegetables from the garden.

Hope your summer is cooler than mine. :( It's hot in the South, Y'all. Lookin' forward to fall.)

    Sorry I don't have a new post yet, it's been a little busy up here and I'm actually trying to finish one tonight. But, You made me stop to go check out your Liberty Plates...they are fabulous! I don't remember seeing those at any of the stores up here back then.
    I do remember we stayed at the Mountainview Hotel..the summer before they was 100 in Gatlinburg. People were comin into town from Marysville and around just to stay at the pools.

  3. Oh Wow 2 boxes! What a trade! Jim is the same way. If I use our Lenox China he asks why? HAHAH he is soooo afraid he'll break one.

  4. Sounds delish! I even bet someone who doesn't like squash, would like this!

    happy summer :)

  5. This does look GOOD! Down home cookin' for sure. I will have to give this a try! Thanks for sharing!


  6. Squash casserole sounds great !
    I need to put sausage on my food
    city shopping list! my yankee neighbor says we cook green beans too long down here ! Ha!

  7. Hi Tea,
    Ummmm.......that looks really good.
    We tried to grow some "Yellow Crook Neck Squash" in our garden and instead it was some odd squash that looked like a green mini pumpkin! HA! Oh well....
    Be blessed and stay cool.

  8. I think this looks really good too. =)

  9. Now my Realtor says that houses are selling faster if they have a garden. So your garden is a good thing if you want to sell the house.

  10. The recipe sounds like real comfort food....yum :) A combination I would never thought of on my own, but I bet it is delicious!

  11. I loved this post, it made me smile! Especially the portions you assigned depending on the people... Oh dear me, I worry what category we would fall in! I will have to add this to my squash recipes :)
