Summer Squash and Potato Casserole

 

Have you ever grown zucchini or yellow squash in your garden?  If you have you know that by mid-summer you are begging people to take it, perhaps even stuffing a few in your neighbor’s mailbox or dropping bags on the unsuspecting doorsteps of your friends and family.  I must admit that neither vegetable excites me much and I rarely buy them, except to make the occasional loaf of chocolate zucchini bread.  However, for me, texture has just as much to do with liking a food as taste.  And what I think I really don’t like about zucchini or yellow squash is the mushy texture they take on when cooked.  If you subscribe to this blog, you saw that I shared a recipe for pickling thinly sliced zucchini (along with several other veggies) at the beginning of this month.  Playing around with all those thinly sliced vegetables got me thinking about layers and casseroles and inspired me to come up with a zucchini/squash dish that I would like.

Bonus: Sriracha Corn Dip

School is back in session, fall is right around the corner, and potlucks, game days and tailgating are filling up the calendar.  If you are looking for a quick and tasty dish that is sure to please the hungry hordes, look no further.  I came up with this recipe at the end of summer one year when I went crazy at the farmers market and bought way more fresh corn than any person could ever need.  I’ve tried it with frozen corn kernels as well and it is just as good.  With the Ankarsrum slicer/shredder attachment, prepping the ingredients is a breeze.  Enjoy!

sriracha corn dip 2 (1 of 1)

Sriracha Corn Dip

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20-25 minutes total

 

1 tablespoon olive oil

5 garlic cloves, finely minced

6 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels

4 ounces smoked Gouda cheese

12 ounces sharp cheddar cheese

16 ounces cream cheese

2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce, or to taste

 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Add the olive oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Saute the garlic and corn for 8-10 minutes, until the corn kernels are just beginning to brown.

While the corn cooks, shred the Gouda and cheddar using the Ankarsrum shredder attachment.

Add the remaining ingredients, including the shredded cheeses, and reduce the heat to medium.  Cook until the cream cheese is thoroughly incorporated and the Gouda and cheddar are melted.

Add the mixture to a 3 quart oven safe dish.  Bake for 10-15 minutes until bubbly and then switch to broil for approximately 30 seconds to brown the top.  Serve with chips, pita bread and crudité.

Serves: 8-10
