Turkey Lurkey! Part 1

So, I guess it's almost Thanksgiving. WAIT a minute. Thanksgiving is OVER. Oops, I started this post way back when, but now it's long gone. I'll still tell you what I made - 4 yummy concoctions: The Dressing, squash casserole, pumpkin pie, and a pumpkin roll.

I'm not sure I can tell you the Turkey Dressing recipe, because its one of those things. If you really want to know, just ask me and I'm sure I'll tell you. I did make one slight modification this year. In an effort to make it just a bit fluffier and not so dense, I added extra eggs. It worked!

For part 1 of this, I'll tell you the squash recipe. Later on, I'll tell more 'cause the pie was AWESOME!

Squash Casserole
1 1/2 - 2 pounds yellow squash
1 onion diced
1/2 stick butter, melted
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 eggs
1 1/2 - 2 cups Muenster cheese, grated

Slice the squash ~ 3/4 inch thick. (Frances sliced it for me one year and it was so much better than when I do it. I was slicing it too thin.). Dice the onion. Place both in a medium pot with some salted water (not covering or anyting). Bring to a boil and simmer 20 minutes. Drain really well. Then combine squash, onion, butter, cream, eggs, and cheese, while still hot. Pour into a greased dish. Melt 1/2 stick of butter. Crumble 1 sleeve of saltines and mix with melted butter. Put these on top of the squash. Cook at 350° for 30 minutes. Mmmmmm.
