Our recipe for Squash Casserole doesn't have a very exciting name. It should really be called Creamy Delicious Squash Casserole with Crunchy Stuffing on Top, but that would have been too long. There are lots of veggies in this dish, but they're shredded, so they blend into the stuffing, condensed cream of chicken soup and sour cream and bake up into a decadent dish that everyone will love. Once you shred the veggies, the rest of the recipe is just dump-and-bake. Squash Casserole may not have an exciting name, but will create some excitement at your dinner table!

Heat the oven to 350°F. Stir the stuffing and butter in a large bowl. Reserve 1/2 cup stuffing mixture (you'll sprinkle it on top later) and spoon the remaining stuffing mixture into a 11x8x2-inch baking dish.
Stir the soup, sour cream, yellow squash, zucchini, carrot and cheese in a medium bowl. Spoon the soup mixture over the stuffing in the dish and sprinkle with the reserved stuffing mixture.
Bake for 40 minutes or until the mixture is hot.
I have a recipe very similar to this only it doesn't have carrots or cheese in it. But it is a very awesome recipe and will try it with the carrots and cheese. I have adapted my recipe by adding 2 cans of chicken breast meat and instead of saving stuffing mix to sprinkle on top of the casserole, I include it in the casserole and use canned fried onions to sprinkle instead. What a kick in flavor that makes.
Love this recipe!
I've been making this for years , adding onion. I often brown smoked sausage and add to make it an entree. Delicious!
I had to make some adjustments to it only because I didn't have all the ingredients on hand. I first used buttery round crackers for the bottom and top layers because I didn't have the stuffing and I microwaved the vegetables too instead of boiling them and cut them in rounds instead of shredding them. I literally ate it all over three days the whole casserole myself. I also substituted greek yogurt for the sour cream as I didn't have it on hand and it was still good. Will be making this recipe again and thanks for sharing it.
I have a question. Do I just use a small can of cream of chicken condensed soup ?? Also do you think adding 1-2 eggs to the soup mix would hurt anything ?? I would actually like to mix it all up in one bowl vs layering. That should be okay ?
Hi. I would like to make this. My question is, do you cook the stuffing mix first according to package directions, or just stir the dry stuffing mix with the butter? I feel that it would be too dry. Thank you
You don't need to prepare the stuffing according to package directions for this recipe. Simply combine the stuffing with the butter as directed. There is plenty of moisture in the recipe to hydrate the stuffing, and the stuffing/butter mixture you reserve to sprinkle on top provides a slightly crunchy texture on top.
