Gluten-Free Cheesy Squash Casserole

Lately there has been a steady stream of zucchini and squash in our crisper drawer – it’s just so cheap!  Normally we grill it, but I wanted to cook it indoors one night and I came up with this easy cheesy quick casserole-style dish.  This particular one was just squash, but I’ve also used a combination of squash and zucchini too with excellent results.

Chop up the squash into small pieces and toss with the olive oil.

Put in a baking dish (I used two Orka individual silicone steamer dishes) and season with salt, pepper and Garlic Gold, then top with the cheese, pieces of butter and the gluten-free breadcrumbs.

Tip – find a GF bread you don’t like? Make breadcrumbs! I store mine in the freezer to keep fresh, and use them straight from the freezer with great results.

It’s really quick to put together and tastes fantastic – how can you go wrong with toasty golden cheese and crispy breadcrumbs on veggies?

If you want to get fancy with it, try whipping out a mandoline and layering in the thinly sliced squash and zucchini with cheese and butter.

So worth it, I promise!
