Where to start with a bumper zucchini crop? With a Southern classic—squash casserole. Savannah, Georgia’s Dora Charles, author of A Real Southern Cook In Her Savannah Kitchen, discovered that two squashes, zucchini and good ol’ yellow crookneck, are definitely better than one.
Using both zucchini and yellow squash gives this version of the classic more color, texture, and flavor. If the yellow squash are large at the bottom, cut the necks into rounds, but cut the bulbous bottoms in half or quarters before you slice them, to keep the sizes more uniform. Mixing crushed fried onions into the Ritz cracker topping is a genius move; it adds even more crunch and flavor.
