5 pounds medium yellow squash
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups bread crumbs
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup granulated sugar
salt, to taste
2 tablespoons chopped onion
1 dash freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut off tips of squash, then cut each squash into 3 or 4 pieces. Drop squash into a large saucepan with enough boiling water to cover. Return to a boil, reduce heat and cook until tender. Drain squash in colander, then place in a large bowl and mash. Stir in eggs, crumbs, butter, sugar, salt, onion and pepper. Spoon mixture into a 3-quart casserole that has been lightly greased or coated with vegetable oil spray. Sprinkle a light layer of bread crumbs on top. Bake until lightly browned, 30 to 40 minutes.

Because I had no bread crumbs, but had leftover cream of wheat with raisins from breakfast, I used that (plus two slices of fresh bread, torn into small pieces.) Strange, I know, but it turned out pretty good. The raisins substituted for sugar.
