Baked Zucchini In Sour Cream

Well, here it is folks, another (and I might add, probably the last veggie recipe this week, as I’m dying to post several new desserts) veggie recipe and since yesterday I said I would post a squash recipe, I thought that this one would be well received. It is from a cookbook that my aunt gave me back in the 60’s and each book of the set specializes in one of the following: salads, meats, vegetables and of course, desserts. The first cake I ever made came from the dessert book and I still make it today. A one bowl…oops, I always go back to desserts, don’t I? Back to the squash (did Adam name it that? and if so, how did he come up with that name? Squash) Was there a vegetable in the Garden of Eden that he accidentally sat or stepped on or did he taste something he didn’t like and wished that it would “squash away?” in the flood? Anyhow, this recipe is a great one for fall and is easy and really rich and flavorful. BTW, do not email me that the flood was years after Adam, I was just trying to be funny.

6 zucchini

2/3 cup sour cream

1 c grated Cheddar cheese

1 tables butter

1/2 teas salt

3 tables fresh bread crumbs

2 tables grated cheese

Cut squash into 1/2″ slices; simmer in water for 10 minutes.  Drain water from squash well.  Place in 8″ casserole dish that has been lightly greased. In a medium size bowl, combine sour cream, Cheddar cheese, butter and salt. Pour sauce over squash. Combine bread crumbs and remaining cheese; sprinkle over casserole. Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes, or until bubbly. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Serves: 6
