Karen’s Killer Fixin’s #Vegetables #Casserole: SUMMER SQUASH CASSEROLE from Karen’s Kitchen

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is SUMMER SQUASH CASSEROLE!

If you’re looking for a different side dish to add to that Thanksgiving dinner this year, this might be the one to try. Especially if your family loves summer squash! My version of this recipe (below)  includes beef or chicken. We’re carnivores in the Docter household! But, if you want to forgo the meats, feel free to add 1-2 layers more vegetables and cheese. Think veggie lasagna! The neat thing about this casserole is that you can easily adjust it for a smaller or bigger crowd.

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

In greased baking dish, layer: 

1 layer of sliced squash 

1 layer of chopped tomatoes and chopped onions 

1 layer cooked hamburger (or chicken if preferred) 

1 layer grated, cheddar cheese to taste 

Salt and Pepper to taste 

Cook at 350 degrees about 45 minutes until vegetables are tender and cheese is bubbly.  

NOTE: You can add 2-3 layers if you want a thicker veggie casserole. Also, if you use rotisserie chicken or beef, it makes for a complete meal in one dish, not to mention another great flavor variation. Another variation is to try different cheeses. This is great with a Dill cheese or Havarti or Muenster or…you get the picture. 

Happy Eating!
