Summer Squash Gratin

June 12, 2011


Simple and tasty. Enjoy!

You will need:

  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 large summer squash, sliced into 1/4″ rounds (and halved if particularly wide)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced and divided
  • 1 and 1/2 T butter, divided
  • 1/2 t ground mustard
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 c cheddar, shredded
  • 1/2 c light sour cream
  • 1/2 c bread crumbs
  • 1/4 c Romano cheese, grated

Then you…

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and grease an 8×8 casserole dish (roughly 2-quarts).
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute the squash, onion and one clove of garlic for about 5 minutes, until starting to soften.
  3. Stir in 1/2 T butter along with the mustard, salt and pepper.
  4. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  5. Stir in the shredded cheddar and sour cream.
  6. Pour the squash mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  7. Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter in the skillet.
  8. Add the garlic and saute about 1 minute. Stir in the bread crumbs and lightly toast.
  9. Remove from the heat and mix in the shredded Romano.
  10. Top the squash mixture with the bread crumbs.
  11. Bake 25 minutes, or until bubbly and toasty!
