Charleston Yellow Squash Casserole With A Secret

This Charleston Yellow Squash Casserole is a great recipe for squash that is loaded with flavor. The secret ingredient adds a really different flavor.

Even squash haters love this casserole!

If your family doesn’t really like squash, they will love this casserole and might even request it instead of potatoes!

It freezes well, so you can always have one on hand for potluck suppers or picnics.

The secret ingredient is nutmeg and is something that you notice but you can’t define what it is that you are tasting. I never would have thought of adding nutmeg to a squash casserole but it’s great.
