Okay….. I could get in BIG trouble for doing this, but I’m going to share my family’s secret recipe for Squash Dressing. This recipe has been a family tradition at our Thansgiving feasts for quite some time. Even my brother who absolutely HATES squash loves this dressing. It is superb and a great way to sneak veggies into something your kids will actually eat.
6 yellow squash washed, ends trimmed and cut into 1 inch cubes
3-4 c of gluten-free cornbread crumbled (or equivalent of gluten-free bread or biscuits)
2 cans of gluten-free cream of chicken soup
1 c unsalted butter melted
1 large yellow onion chopped
2 tsp dried sage
coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 eggs beaten
Preheat oven to 375F. Start by cooking your squash in a pot of boiling salted water for 7-10 minutes until fork tender. Drain squash and then mash it thoroughly. Mix squash with all other ingredients in a very large bowl and stir to combine. Pour dressing in a greased 9X12 baking dish and bake for 45 minutes or until golden on top.
Serve with some homemade turkey gravy on top. Mmmm….turkey!! I cannot wait for my favorite holiday to get here.
