  • 3-4 Large Squash and/or Zucchini, cut into 1″ pieces
  • Medium Onion, cut into 1″ pieces
  • 8 oz. Sour Cream
  • 1 C. Dukes Mayo
  • 1 C. Parmesan Cheese, grated (not the green cap stuff)
  • 1 C. Cheese of your choice, shredded (I used the Mexican blend from Aldi)
  • 1/2 C. Jalapeno Pimento Cheese
  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Seasoning of your choice- I used Dak’s Green Zest
  • Low Carb Crackers- I used Aldi’s Cheddar Almond Flour Crackers, crushed
  • Butter
  1. In a medium-sized pot, melt a small amount of butter over medium heat. Add the squash, onion, and your choice of seasoning. Cook until the squash is partially softened. Drain any excess liquid.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the sour cream, mayo, Mexican blend cheese, and pimento cheese. Mix well until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  3. Add the cooked squash to the mixing bowl and gently stir to incorporate, being careful not to overmix and create a mushy texture.
  4. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a baking dish with butter and spread the squash mixture evenly in the dish.
  5. Sprinkle the crushed crackers over the top of the casserole, followed by a generous sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.
  6. Place small slices of butter evenly across the top of the casserole to enhance the flavor and create a golden, crispy crust.
  7. Bake the casserole in the preheated oven for approximately 30 minutes, or until the top is nicely browned and the casserole is heated through and bubbly.
  8. Once out of the oven, allow the casserole to cool for about 5 minutes before serving.
  9. It’s time to dig in and savor the flavors of this delicious squash casserole. Enjoy!
