Squash Casserole is a one of those recipes that you’ll find for nearly every holiday, reunion, or special occasion when my family gets together. To say that squash casserole is a staple family-favorite recipe would be a definite understatement, actually.

I’m sure if you’ve been to a southern family reunion anytime in your lifetime, you’ve most likely noticed the squash casserole dishes that always appear. And then disappear just as quickly.

It is just one of those recipes that is a foolproof crowd pleaser.
