    pounds medium-size yellow squash

  • 2

    eggs, beaten

  • 2

    cups bread crumbs

  • ½

    cup butter or margarine

  • ¼

    cup granulated sugar

  • salt, to taste

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped onion

  • Dash of freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut off tips of squash, then cut each squash into 3 or 4 pieces. Drop squash into a large saucepan with enough boiling water to cover. Return to a boil, reduce heat and cook until tender. Drain squash in colander, then place in a large bowl and mash. Stir in eggs, crumbs, butter, sugar, salt, onion and pepper. Spoon mixture into a 3-quart casserole that has been lightly greased or coated with vegetable oil spray. Sprinkle a light layer of bread crumbs on top. Bake until lightly browned, 30 to 40 minutes.
