I am trying to find a recipe that is similar to the baked squash served at Cotton Patch Cafe. It is yellow in color, a hint of sweetness, probably a bit of some kind of breaded topping. I don't think it has cheese or anything like that in it. It might have a few onions in it, but I'm not certain.

Thanks

This is probably the closest to what I imagine would be in it, but I'd like another opinion.

Ingredients
3 pounds yellow summer squash, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 eggs
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
Directions
Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 2-quart baking dish.
Place the squash in a large saucepan, cover with water, and boil until soft, about 15 minutes. Drain the squash well, place in a large mixing bowl, and mash until slightly chunky. Stir in 1/2 cup of bread crumbs, onion, eggs, 1/4 cup of butter, sugar, salt, and pepper until thoroughly combined, and spread mixture into the prepared baking dish. Drizzle the top of the casserole with 1/4 cup melted butter, and sprinkle 1/4 cup bread crumbs over the butter.
Bake in the preheated oven until the casserole is cooked through and the top is golden brown, about 1 hour.

Can you ask the cafe for the recipe?

I guess I could, but I doubt they would give it out. Most don't.

My sister worked there in high school and she remembers that she had to know that it contained eggs (maybe for allergy info?).

I think my mother and I are going to go there some day this week and get some and really try to disect it!

Or this one...

2 tablespoons chopped onion
salt and pepper to taste

In a large saucepan over medium heat cover squash with water and cook until tender, about 10 minutes; drain and mash.
To the squash add eggs, margarine, sugar, onion, salt and pepper. Mix well and transfer to a 2 quart casserole dish. Sprinkle bread crumbs on top.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

Bread crumbs can be found next to the shake n bake/pork,chicken,fish breading section. Just ask the clerk!

Yes you can make your own bread crumbs easily, just oven dry them and add your own seasonings.

Or do a Google to get an idea.

Does this dish use yellow summer squash or winter butternut squash?

I think we may go with the second recipe with a few tweeks.
I've looked at some copycat recipes and it seems to be almost the same as the Black-Eyed Pea Squash Casserole. I've never eaten there, though, so I don't know if this is what I want or not. http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/recs/361/BlackEyed_Pea_Baked_Squash47762.shtml

I am thinking about doing it in two layers, squash, breadcrumbs, squash, breadcrumbs, as it seems there are breadcrumbs in the middle at Cotton Patch.

Now I just have to figure out this "bread crumbs" thing. Can you believe that I have never cooked anything requiring bread crumbs? Can you buy them? If so, where are the located in the store. Or do you just let your bread get kind of dried out and crumble that up? I don't keep bread at the house, so I would have to think about that in advance...

Yellow summer squash, but I bet it would work with either.
