Gray Squash Au Gratin

This squash au gratin dish is very easy to make. The recipe calls for gray squash (shown in the picture below) but you can substitute zucchini or yellow squash.

Gray Squash vs Zucchini

If you aren’t familiar with gray squash, it has a similar look to zucchini but is lighter green. The zucchini has darker green skin and a slender shape (as shown below) compared to gray squash.

Gluten-Free Dish

This au gratin recipe takes only 10 minutes to bake because you stir-fry the squash before baking. This recipe calls for crushed Chex Rice Cereal instead of regular bread crumbs so it is a gluten-free dish. Because the crushed rice cereal stays crunchy longer, I prefer using it over regular bread crumbs.

Using Garlic

There is a bit of garlic in this dish. If you aren’t a garlic fan, reduce the amount or leave it out altogether. But if you like garlic, this dish doesn’t disappoint! Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a skillet melt 2 tablespoons butter and then add squash, onions, salt, and pepper. Stir and cook on medium for 1 minute and then cover and cook 2-3 minutes more until the squash is softened but still crisp. During the last minute, add the garlic and stir until fragrant.
  3. Add the cream and stir, cooking until thickened a little, about 3 or 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the cheese and 1/4 cup of bread crumbs and stir to mix. Pour into a 9 x 9-inch (or equivalent size) greased casserole dish. Top with the remaining bread crumbs and melt the last tablespoon of butter and drizzle over the top of casserole.
  4. Bake uncovered for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
