Southern Baked Yellow Squash


After trying this simple (and forgiving) meal at a potluck and being pleasantly surprised by its simplicity, I persuaded the creator to share it with me. A tasty summer side dish for anything grilled, smoked, or barbecued just requires a few ingredients, especially if the squash is homegrown!

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1 Hour 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 Hour 35 minutes


  • 3 pounds yellow summer squash,
  • ½ cup dry bread crumbs
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • ¼ cup dry bread crumbs



  1. Set the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees C). In a 2-quart baking dish, grease it.
  2. Place the squash in a big pot, add water to cover, and boil for about 15 minutes or until tender. The squash should be thoroughly drained, added to a large mixing dish, and mashed until somewhat chunky. Spread the mixture into the prepared baking dish after thoroughly combining the onion, eggs, 1/4 cup butter, sugar, salt, and pepper. 1/4 cup of melted butter should be drizzled over the casserole’s top before 1/4 cup of bread crumbs are added.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately an hour, or until the top is golden brown and the dish is thoroughly heated through.
