Summer (yellow) Squash "Casserole"


Summer Squash (yellow) Casserole

2 yellow summer squash, sliced
1 small onion, chopped

8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons mayonnaise

2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste 

1 tsp 

In a large frying pan, saute the squash, onions and garlic in olive oil until tender.  In a separate bowl combine eggs, mayo, heavy cream and seasonings and mix together.  Spray an 9x9 casserole (or whatever size you like) with oil, then put 1/3 of the egg mixture on the bottom.  Add 1 layer using half the squash spread out over it.  Pour half of remaining egg mixture over squash, sprinkle 1/2 cup of cheese over that.  Layer the rest of the squash over that, spread the rest of the egg mixture over that.  Top with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese and bake at 350ยบ 30-40 minutes or until set and the top is bubbly and starting to brown.

Mine may or may not have had a little more cheese than that.  Possibly pictures to follow.
