“This spicy cheese and ground beef casserole can be used as a side dish or a main course! Any type of squash or ground meat may be used. For winter squash, you may want to pre-cook in the microwave before frying in butter to speed the process.”

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute squash in butter until tender, about 10 minutes. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef, onion, and jalapeno, stirring until beef is evenly browned. Drain off grease. In a large bowl, mix together the squash, eggs, and mayonnaise. Stir in the ground beef mixture and Cheddar cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into a 9x13 inch baking dish, and sprinkle cracker crumbs evenly over the top.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until heated through, and the top is nicely browned.

I read the previous reviews and made a few changes based on what ppl were saying about it not having flavor. Instead of sauteing the squash in butter, I cooked one slice of bacon in a non-stick pan first and then sauteed the squash in the bacon drippings. I also added a big pinch of ground thyme to the squash mixture. Instead of cooking the ground beef with jalapenos, I stirred in a drained can of Rotel tomatoes after I mixed in the eggs and mayonaise. It was GREAT! Even my husband, who does not like squash, loved the casserole! (of course I didn't tell him it was in there!)

Very good recipe for a bumper crop of zucchini squash. I didn't have mayonnaise but found sour cream worked well. The hot peppers gave the dish a nice spicy flavor.

This was better than delicious! I realized when preparing the recipe that I was out of mayonnaise so substituted with sour cream - then realized I didn't have ground beef, and substituted with ground turkey - both were - and wonderful. My Beloved and I ate over half the entire casserole and have set plans to finish it off tonight.
