Ingredients

8 yellow squash

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter

1 1/2 cups sliced Vidalia onion

2 garlic cloves, chopped

1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Salt and freshly ground black pepper 

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup 1-inch pieces white bread slices with crusts removed

Ice water

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 sleeve saltine crackers, crushed into crumbs

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Butter 8 individual cast iron Lodge Round Mini-Servers. 
  2. Peel, then cut the squash crosswise into 1/8-inch-thick rounds. Cut the rounds into half moons. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add the squash, and boil just until tender; drain. 
  3. Melt the 1/4 cup butter in a medium cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, stirring occasionally; add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the parsley, season with salt and pepper to taste, and remove the skillet from the heat. 
  4. Soak the bread in ice water to cover until softened, then squeeze out the moisture and chop. Add to the onion in the pan and cook over medium-high heat for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the squash, cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, and remove from the heat. Stir in the eggs and season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  5. Divide the mixture between the prepared mini-servers. Sprinkle each with the crushed crackers, then dot with the pieces of butter. Bake until hot and golden brown on top, 20 to 25 minutes.
