I have so much to be thankful for!  We had a fabulous day with my Mom's family yesterday.  26 of my favorite relatives gathered to consume vast amounts of turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes!  Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday.  I love the food, the fun, and the family.  I probably like it because I always root for the underdog and I feel bad for Thanksgiving because it's "stuffed" between two of the biggest holidays and doesn't get the glory it deserves!  Our family tradition is to rotate the dinner among the various families and then we all have a signature dish that we are responsible for….yes, it's vast amounts of food.  Turkey, ham, elk, squash, corn, beans and so on….I promised that I'd share the recipe for my Squash Casserole.  I promise even non-squashers will like it!


Squash Casserole


  • 1/3 c butter
  • 3/4 c. sugar – cream butter and sugar together and add:
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 can (5oz) evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 6-8 c. squash – I use a mixture of butternut, buttercup, hubbard etc.  Whatever I got.

Add casserole ingredients together and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until firm.  Add topping 5-10 minutes prior to the end of baking.

Topping:  Mix together with a fork.

  • 1/2 c. Rice Krispies
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. pecans or walnuts
  • 2 T. butter – melted –

That's it!  Enjoy.
