Paula Deen’s Squash Casserole
Paula Deen’s Squash Casserole is amazing! We love this easy southern recipe. This side dish is so easy to make with fresh garden squash or that you pick up at the farmer’s market.
My friend Robin passed this recipe for Paula Deen’s Squash Casserole onto me this summer when I was looking for alternative ways to cook squash from my garden. We LOVE it! It is so easy to make. We cook it several times a month during gardening season. This is perfect Southern Comfort Food!
You can also freeze summer squash and use it later for this recipe too! When you plant a garden and find yourself swimming in squash this is a great recipe to try. I love planting my garden but often times find the squash comes on all at once.
I love to serve this Paula Deen’s Squash Casserole with Sour Cream Rolls and Crockpot Apples and Porkchops. This is a family favorite recipe. Even my husband who doesn’t love sour cream really loves this recipe. It is a family favorite for us.
For this recipe you make a “batch” of House Seasoning OR you can simply use use 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper and 1/4 tsp garlic powder or to your tasting. I love the house seasoning in other recipes and make this weekly during the summer so it is no concern to make and store in an airtight container.

- Vegetable oil
- 1 large onion chopped
- 4 tablespoons butter

This recipe is SO yummy! I used it time and time again when I was picking tons of squash from my garden! YUMMY!
We love this recipe and use it alot in the summer when squash is fresh. I could eat a dish of it now. 🙂
We plant zucchini. Do you think this recipe would be good with zucchini instead of squash??
Oh I do!
1/4 CUP black pepper and garlic powder??
Oh, I see now…partof the seasoning.
You make the house seasoning but only use 1 tsp for this recipe or you can just add 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper and 1/4 tsp garlic powder or to your tasting.
you should edit the recipe to say the right amount of salt, pepper, and garlic powder. It’s a little confusing. Obviously that is too much salt. I didn’t see the blog part until it was too late.
I did add it to the notes and it is in the post as well.
Awesome recipe, going to cook this for a Thanksgiving side dish. I was just wondering about how many squash to equal 6 cups? Thanks for the recipe and Happy Thanksgiving!
4-5 medium sized. Enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving!
could this be frozen and cooked at a later date?
Yes, BUT squash is a water based plant and it gets really mushy once it is frozen. It won’t be as good as when it is prepared fresh.
Not a squash lover what-so-ever but I actually crave this stuff! It’s amazing! I’m kind of curious as to how many sqaush Paula Deen goes through at her own restaurant because I used 3 smaller squash and they cooked down to only about two cups!
I have never heard of this! Had some squash to use and now I’m a fan!
Tried this recipe today. My husband vows he will never eat anything with sour cream. He loved this dish. I’ll never tell him sour cream was in it. My secret.
Can you make this a day ahead and take it out the next day to bake?
