- 6 yellow or pattypan summer squash
- 1 cup onions, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
- 1/2 stick butter
- 2 slices white bread
- 1 medium bowl ice water
- 1 egg
- Salt and pepper
- 1 cup cracker crumbs, or enough to cover casserole
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Peel and cut squash into cubes. Boil until tender, about 5 to 7 minutes, and drain. Brown onion, garlic, and parsley in 2 tablespoons butter seasoned with salt and pepper. Soak bread in ice water and wring out; chop fine. Add to onion and garlic mixture; cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes. Add drained squash and cook 2 to 3 minutes more, stirring. Remove from heat. Beat egg and add, allowing it to absorb into the mixture. Season with salt and pepper, if needed.
Cook's Note: You can refrigerate this dish for up to 2 days before baking, but you should add the bread crumb topping right before you bake.
