Cheesy Summer Squash

Cheesy Summer Squash is a slightly decadent way to enjoy this abundant summer vegetable. I buy so many summer squash and zucchini in the summer and always need new ways to cook them. This is a simple, but very tasty way to eat more veggies.

Sprinkle a small amount of cheese between each layer. Repeat until the squash is gone.

Make the custard mixture and pour over the entire dish.

The dish should be completely covered with the custard. Top with the rest of the cheese.

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (any variety you like…I actually used a pizza blend because I had it on hand

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
  • Slice the squash very thinly
  • Coat a pie plate with cooking spray
  • Put a layer of summer squash
  • Sprinkle on a bit of cheese
  • Repeat until you have used all of the squash (you should use about 1/2 of the cheese in the layers and the rest to top)
  • Beat 2 eggs into the heavy cream
  • Mix in the seasonings
  • Pour over the squash
  • Top with the rest of the cheese
  • Bake for about 1 hour, until top is golden brown
