Snackin’ with Sarah Sellers: Squash Cakes

I can’t believe we’re already down to 12 on American Idol. The finale will be here before you know it, but in the meantime I’m still cooking up snacks for Yahoo!’s Lyndsey Parker and her Reality Rocks blog.

The theme this week is Songs From the Year You Were Born. So I decided to make some snacks from back in the day. Tonight’s recipe is one of my all time favorite family dishes. I thought I would try something totally different and turn it into a snack. There are two VERY important things to remember when making this dish:

  1. Make sure the consistency of the cornbread stuffing mix is sticky enough to form cups.
  2. Make sure you form the cups up the sides completely or else they won’t be cups but a pile of squash when you pull them out.

If you don’t want to bother with the cups at least make the casserole…it’s to die for.

Thanksgiving means Squash Casserole!!!

I love the holidays, especially Thanksgiving. Who wouldn’t love an entire day dedicated to giving thanks over a feast of meats, casseroles, and desserts galore. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Thanksgiving in my family is definitely an event. Whether it’s my father’s feast of meats, or my Grandmother’s casserole smorgasboard, I am never left unsatisfied. This year will be spent at my Grandma and Grandpa’s house in Oklahoma for the biannual Thanksgiving/family reunion. Every other year the entire family comes together from Oklahoma, Texas, New York, Salt Lake City, and Tennessee. It’s quite an event and I must say the food can’t get any better anywhere else. I can’t wait to take lots of pics on Thursday and share all of the good eats with everyone this weekend, but for now I wanted to share my favorite dish that has become a Hibbard family staple.

The origins of this recipe started with my amazing Aunt Janice. She was a wonderful woman full of spirit and love, and her Squash Casserole reflected all of the love she conveyed. The recipe has been passed throughout the family but for the most part has maintained it’s original flavor. I made just two small changes, even though it tastes amazing with it. You really must make this recipe, it’s the best casserole I have ever had!! Continue reading
