Alright you Brutes, its been a while since I gave you somethin good to eat so here you go. I made this on Easter for a family get together and it turns out it was a hit.  Its got a good helpin of squash and onions in there for the health conscious and a mess of cheese and sour cream to make it taste good.  This recipe is good for a get together cause it feeds about 12.  If you don't need that much just cut it in half.  Good luck and Good Eatin!!!

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds yellow squash, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
  • 1 large sweet onion, finely chopped 
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 1/2 cups soft breadcrumbs, divided
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 (8-ounce) container sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten 
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

Cook squash in boiling water to cover in a large skillet 8 to 10 minutes or just until tender. Drain well; gently press between paper towels.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in skillet over medium-high heat; add onion and garlic, and sauté 5 to 6 minutes or until tender. Remove skillet from heat; stir in squash, 1 cup breadcrumbs, 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, and next 7 ingredients. Spoon into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish.
