It is squash season and I love summer squash. I wanted to share a really scrumptious recipe for low carb squash casserole:
In a large pan or wok, add
4 T butter
1/2 cup diced onion (approx half a medium onion)
6-7 cups diced squash (approx 6 crook-neck or zucchini squash)
salt and pepper to taste
Sautee until soft but not mush. Pour into a 9x13 casserole dish.
Mix together thoroughly:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 large eggs
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t cayenne
Pour over the sauteed squash.
Sprinkle 1/4 cup Parmesan on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes, until top is browned.
This is also great if you add crumbled bacon, chopped ham, or cooked sausage when you add the cream/egg.
No one knows it is low carb and it tastes really great.
Summer squash is a summer treat---- will try this one!!
This sounds really good and a new way to cook them!
Thanks for posting~
Hope I didn't mess it up too bad. I mixed the parmesan with the cream/egg mixture. Well see, it's in the oven!
This was excellent and I'm glad I mixed the cheese into the egg mixture. I sprinkled a little more on top when it came out hot.
I used Zucchini and added fresh garlic, garlic salt & pepper but omitted the nutmeg and cayenne to suit my taste.
I would definitely make this again!!
This recipe has made me hungry hehe
*checking the pantry* not squash, but I'll find some delicious vegetables, thanks :)
I made this last week and it was excellent! I left out the onion because my saute pan was so full of zucchini. lol.
