Recipe Notes

My great aunt Mabel t made the BEST squash casseroles ever!  She had at least a dozen different ways that she made squash.  However, it did involve breadcrumbs, onions and sugar and thereby raising the carb level.  I adjusted it so that I could still enjoy it!

Dedicated to an amazing country cook!
