Green & Gold Casserole
Green & Gold Casserole
I graduated from Spencer High School, home of the mighty Greenwave. Don’t ask me what that means – in all of my years there, I was never able to figure that out. Our mascot was an owl. BUT, our colors were green & gold. That was always cool, because my family is from Springfield, Oregon, a small town that is a sister-city to Eugene Oregon, home of the Oregon Ducks – whose colors are also green & gold. Which is what makes this casserole so much fun. I could take it to a class reunion or a football party and be a winner either way.
1 medium onion
2 TBS olive oil
1 pound zucchini (about 2 medium), grated
1 pound yellow squash (about 2 medium), grated
1 cup cracker crumbs
2 TBS fresh parsley, chopped
1½ tsp fresh oregano, chopped
1¼ tsp fresh ground pepper
½ tsp Kosher salt
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese

Oh man! I just made this (early in the morning b/c it is so hot here) and couldn’t believe how good it was! I think it will actually become our breakfast. It was delicious! I had a little trouble with moisture though. So I ended up straining the water out of the squash mixture when it came out of the skillet. And it turned out great! Definetly a keeper! Thankyou so much for posting. I had a bunch of “freebie” squash given to me and it probably would’ve gone bad. Now I know what to do with it.
Made this for Christmas dinner. It was a huge hit! After grating the squash, I used a paper towel to adsorb the liquid.
