Recipe: Cheesy Squash

I love this time of year...long lazy days, no alarms, lots of swimming and an overabundance of treasures from the garden.  We have been blessed with family and friends that are sharing their produce.  I have received lots of squash this year and I am LOVING it!  This is one of my favorite veggies and with all this golden goodness I have been looking for new recipes.  I came across this recipe and was instantly inspired to make it.  I am glad that I did.  It smelled so good while it was cooking away in the oven and once it was done, my family couldn't wait to dive into it.  There was nothing left by the end of dinner.  The onions and squash sweetened and the cheese added some awesome flavor.  I used sharp cheese but I would think any cheese would work.  

This is definitely a family keeper and I can't wait to make this dish again and share it with my extended family.  Enjoy!

Cheesy Squash

  • Large sweet onion (1015 or Vidalia)
  • Several squash (I used 3 large and 3 small)
  • 1-2 cups cheese, shredded
  • salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Dice the onion and saute in a little butter until soft.
  3. Grease a 9x13" pan with butter or non-stick spray.
  4. Thinly slice the squash.
  5. Once the onion has softened, spread evenly in the bottom of the pan.
  6. Arrange the squash in the pan.
  7. Cover the pan with foil and cook in the oven for 30 minutes.
  8. Remove the foil and sprinkle the cheese evenly over the squash.
  9. Place the pan back in the oven, uncovered, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly.

  1. I love squash and cook it all of the time but I have never put cheese on it. Can't wait to try it !

  2. I really want to start trying to cook with squash and this recipe gives me a little more motivation to do so. I think that I can handle trying any new veggie as long as there is a little melted cheese involved : )

    I would love for you to link up at Mealtime Monday!
