This is a great recipe for a yummy casserole, that is a hit at our Thanksgiving and Christmas Table. The recipe comes from my Grandmother, and it was a favorite of her friend, and former landlady, Isabel.
It’s especially good served with poultry, but is a great addition to any meal. I’ve even been known to heat the leftovers, as a meal on their own!
Isabel’s Squash Casserole
3 Cups Mashed Squash (cooked)
2 TBSP. Butter or Margarine
2 Eggs (separate whites from yolks)
1 Finely Chopped Onion
1/4 Cup Milk
3 TBSP. Flour
3 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt & 1/8 tsp. Pepper
1/2 Cup Buttered Crumbs
Cook onions in the butter, until limp and lightly browned. Add cooked, mashed squash. Beat in egg yolks until smooth. Add milk. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites. Pour into a butterd casserole dish. Top with buttered crumbs, and bake 25-30 minutes in 350 oven. Serve hot!
