Crockpot Extra Cheesy Squash Casserole!



Crockpot Extra Cheesy Squash Casserole!

We are in the season of squash! It seems that this time of year I have it coming out of my ears! But, I love it so the fact that I have boxes and boxes of it is a good thing!

As some of you might have read I have been focusing my dinners around the slow cooker here lately. It just seems that every day I have so much going on that I can’t keep up. That is why I love these crockpot recipes. They help me feed my family without much thought or effort going into dinner!

With all this squash on hand I decided that I needed to come up with an idea to make squash int he crockpot. This is something I had never done before but I was excited for the challenge of coming up with a recipe!

Squash Casserole

The recipe that I decided to try to make was an Extra Cheesy Squash Casserole! My husband is NOT a fan of squash but he loves cheese so I was hoping that if I added enough cheese he would overlook the fact that there was squash hiding in this dish AND I am happy to report that my trick worked! 🙂


4 cups shredded squash

1 medium shredded onion

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 cup milk

1 cup water

2 tbs butter

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1 cup Parmesan cheese

2 cup minute rice

1 6oz can diced green chili’s

Ritz Crackers


Add all ingredients except the Ritz Crackers to crock pot and cook on high for 4 hours.

Top with crumbled crackers before serving and enjoy!

This Extra Cheesy Squash Casserole is a perfect meal for a chilly day. I love how easy it was to prepare and it tasted wonderful! Enjoy!

  4. OMG…Squash is one of my favorites! I love Summer squash and Zucchini! I have got to try this recipe!

  5. does regular rice not cook in the 4 hours?

  6. I love squash casseroles! I’ve never made one in a crock pot before, but I would love to try this. I have 3 crock pots, because they are great for our busy lifestyle.
