  • 1 1/2 pounds yellow squash
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese plus more for topping
  • 1 1/2 cups crumbled Town House Wheat Crackers or similar, plus more for topping
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and set out a casserole dish (about 1 qt in size).
  2. Wash the squash and cut into 1/2 inch rounds. Put about a half an inch of water in a pot and bring to a boil. Add the squash, cover with a lid, and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5-7 minutes. Squash is done when the middle part of the largest rounds is starting to break up and the seeds are coming loose.
  3. Drain the squash. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked squash, cheese, and mayonnaise. Stir until the cheese is melted. Add the cracker crumbles and stir vigorously until well combined, allowing the squash to break up as you stir.
  4. Scrape the mixture into the casserole dish and smooth out evenly. Sprinkle with a little more cheese and some more cracker crumbles. Bake 30 minutes and serve warm.
