How to Make Yum Yum Squash Casserole

This recipe is super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add onion to the melted butter in the skillet and cook for 5 minutes, or until tender. Add yellow summer squash, salt, and pepper. Cook until the squash is tender. Drain well.

In a large bowl, stir together vegetables, sour cream, cream of chicken soup, cheddar cheese, onion powder, and garlic powder. Spoon the squash mixture into a baking dish. Top the casserole with a box of cornbread stuffing mix. Pour chicken broth over the top of the dry stuffing mix. Place the casserole dish in the oven and bake until bubbly.

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • I use Stove Top Cornbread Stuffing Mix. Do NOT make the stuffing. You are only going to use the dry stuffing mix.
  • Can use a mixture of yellow squash and zucchini.
  • I cook the squash in a skillet. You can boil the squash on the stovetop if you prefer.
  • You can use any flavor of cream of condensed soup. Cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, or cream of celery soup all work great.
  • Can Squash Casserole be made in advance? Yes! Assemble the casserole and cover the baking dish. Refrigerate until ready to bake. 
    • You may need to add a few minutes to the baking time if baking straight from the refrigerator.
  • Can Squash Casserole be Frozen? Yes! Assemble the casserole and cool completely. Cover the casserole dish with plastic wrap and aluminum foil. Freeze for up to 3 months.
    • To bake after freezing, thaw completely and bake as directed below. 
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
    • Reheat in the microwave or covered with aluminum foil in the oven.

  1. Question: Should you use the seasonings contained in the stuffing mix when you sprinkle the dry stuffing over the casserole? OR, just the dry stuffing croutons alone?

  2. Q: I know you say to not make the dressing, but would it be okay to *moisten* the Stuffing in a bowl with the Broth before applying to the top?

    I was wondering if the topping might otherwise be too dry, so pondered whether that’d help or not…

    Thanks…
