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.
