“My mother always made a heavenly squash casserole when I was growing up. This is my trimmed-down version that's super-easy to make and never dissapoints on taste. In the summer my husband and I eat this at least once a week and it's nearly guilt-free! I use 2% sharp cheddar and turkey bacon, but feel free to go full fat with some of the ingredients.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put squash & bacon into glass, microwave-safe dish. Add salt & pepper & cover dish tightly with cling wrap.
  2. Microwave squash for 13 - 15 minutes. Remove clear wrap carefully. There will be lots of steam.
  3. Mash squash slighly with potato masher or large fork.
  4. Drain squash well (do NOT skip this step or casserole will be watery) and add back to glass bowl.
  5. Taste squash and season further if needed.
  6. Add beaten egg to squash and stir. Microwave until egg is set 3 - 5 minute.
  7. Transfer mixture to baking dish, cover with cheese & broil until cheese is melted.
