Scalloped Zucchini & Crookneck Squash

Scalloped Zucchini & Crookneck Squash | grain-free, egg-free, sugar-free |

My kids love zucchiniโ€ฆ.

Raw zucchini, that is. They eat it up like cucumbers and are sorely disappointed when I tell them Iโ€™m actually going to cook it for dinner! Of course, that disappointment fades when they see cheese on top of it. Because cheese makes everything better. ๐Ÿ˜‰

These scalloped squash are super easy and could be eaten for a side, even though my family eats it as the main deal. The idea for this dish came from my easy scalloped potatoes, which my family loves.

  1. 2 zucchini
  2. 1 crookneck squash
  3. 1/4 yellow onion
  4. 4 cloves garlic
  5. 1/4 c. butter, divided
  6. 2 T. tapioca starch (or brown rice flour, if you can do grains)
  7. 2 c. raw or whole milk
  8. 1 T. parsley
  9. 1/2 t. oregano
  10. 1/4 t. paprika
  11. 1/8 t. pepper
  12. 1/2 t. salt
  13. 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
  14. 1/4 c. grated Parmesan
  1. Preheat oven to 400 and place 2 tablespoons of the butter in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Place the dish in the oven to melt the butter. Meanwhile, thinly slice squash, dice onion, and smash and mince garlic. When butter is melted, swirl to coat pan, then dump in sliced squash. In small saucepan, melt remaining butter over medium-low heat. When melted, add onion and garlic and sautรฉ a few minutes until fragrant. Add in starch/flour, stirring vigorously with a fork to prevent clumping. When thick, slowly pour in milk. Turn heat up to medium and stir until thickened. Pour sauce over squash, sprinkle with cheese, and bake for 35 minutes, or until bubbly and squash are fork-tender.

  1. Great recipe! I make a similar one but use almond milk and manchego cheese to eliminate the GMO dairy products. It really looks delicious and is making me hungry just looking at it. Thanks for sharing with Mouthwatering Mondays.

  2. Thanks, Linda! Those sound like great subs. ๐Ÿ™‚ I like to use my homemade coconut milk, but my hubby likes regular milk. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I've never heard of manchego cheese though, I'll have to check it out!

  3. This looks amazing… zucchini is a favorite of mine too!! Found your recipe at Nap Time Creations. I am one of the hostesses of Tasty Tuesdays and would love you to stop by and link up this recipe if you have not yet already. Here is the link

  4. I think cheese makes things a little better too…lol. Sounds like a great recipe for a nice side veggie dish for the family. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday. Pinned twice.

  5. Oh my goodness, this looks and sounds fabulous! I love zucchini and I ADORE cheese. I haven't heard of crookneck squash before though… is there another name for it?

    Thanks for sharing (and for linking up to the SHINE Blog Hop).

    Wishing you a beautiful day.

  6. Glad to share, Jennifer! Thanks for hosting. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Crookneck is the yellow squash that looks sort of like a little club. ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm not aware of another name for it, but I'm sure you've probably seen it. It's pretty common.

  7. This looks so delicious! My kids are already asking for summer squash again. We haven't planted it yet! I will have to make this soon. YUM.

    Thanks for linking up on the Epic Friday Linky Party!

  8. Zucchini is one of the veggies I have regular cravings for. I should probably be growing it. I'm going to see if this is something my daughter will eat. Usually anything is slightly more palatable to her if it's smothered in cheese sauce.

  9. I'm the same boat as you, Lizzie, I should be growing it too! I hope your daughter likes it, mine do. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by!

  17. I wold love to get your recipes as I am new to fermenting food. Have started with Kombucha and souerkraut and find it is very good for my gut and stabilises my emotions it that is possible.

    1. I’m so glad you’re finding that fermented foods are helping you! I find my body craves them. I have quite a few lacto-fermented recipes, you can search for them in my top navigation bar. ๐Ÿ™‚
