SQUASH! Boy, what I could do with that word! However, this is about Harvesting Squash and Eating Squash. I'm really taking a chance with my Life by revealing a 'Secret Family Recipe', so be sure to note the *PS following the recipe.

From my Garden comes the squash. From my Grandmother-in-law comes the recipe. Hopefully, she would not mind her Secret Recipe being printed in the Cookbook of all cookbooks....Cooking on The Worldwide Web. So to her decendants, who have protected this Secret Recipe from all but Family, I say," Look, I've made Granny Varner a household name."

This recipe is reproduced exactly as it was handwritten.
Squash Cassrole
2 lbs. Squash
2 onions (chopped)
1 box Stovetop Corn Bread Stuffing
1/2 cup Butter (melted)
1 cup Gratted carrots
8 0z. sour cream or 1 cup condensed milk (not deluted)
1 can cream chicken Soup
Slice Squash & put in pan with onions & little water. Simmer 5 min.
Drain well. Do not follow directions on stuffing box. Place crumbs in small bowl & add melted butter. Stir to mix well. In large bowl combine all ingredients - Holding back 1/2 cup of crumbs & Butter pour other ingredients in 2 qt. Casserole that has been lightly greased. Top with the 1/2 cup crumbs. Bake at 350 for 30-40 min.
There have been many who have asked for this recipe through the years. Until now, I have been true to the Secret Family Recipe Code. My defenses have been Squashed. (Forgive me, I just couldn't resist). So to my Sisters-in-law, who also have the burden of secrecy, "I'll share the Recipe Royalties".
*PS - This note from Granny Varner at the bottom of Squash Cassrole!

Guess I've Squashed anyone from calling this recipe their own!
Enjoy and Share with your Family!


  1. yum!! it sounds good! I need to pick up some squash this weekend and try the casserole.
    Thank you Granny Varner and Sue.

  2. Just a few more days and you can pick it right out of my garden.

  3. You are doing a great job with this blog. I am enjoying browsing around--love it all--and you know I'm really partial to viewing the pics. Rose bush babies is a treasure! As much as I already know about you--you still continue to amaze and astonish!! By the way, next time we are together I expect you to be serving this casserole. LS
