Share:

I firmly believe this dish is responsible for at least half the backyard squash gardens in the United States. It's creamy, crunchy and so delicious, it'll turn any squash hater into an enthusiast. If you happen to have an abundance of squash, count yourself lucky and make a double batch — this dish can be frozen for later!

Step 6: Add the egg

Add the egg and half the parmesan cheese. You don't want to add the egg too soon or the hot squash will cook the egg, leading to scrambled eggs in your casserole.
