Yellow Squash Casserole Recipe
I first made this casserole about 10 years ago and I’ve made it many times since! It’s the perfect thing to make for Thanksgiving and other dinner parties to add something new to the classics.
I used to make it with fresh bread crumbs but I’ve decided this classic southern style recipe is so much better with crisp, buttered panko.
Here you’ll love how the flavors of the cheddar and parmesan pair perfectly with the yellow squash. It takes an otherwise bland and boring squash casserole to another sort of decadence.
And then there’s a hint of garlic and fresh herbs to finish off all those satisfying flavors. It’s a must try, comforting vegetable side dish!
