This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

new potato and summer squash casserole
This is a fantastic casserole that I have made a few times now. Its a recipe I made up myself to use the abundant items in my refrigerator. I could eat it every night!
Freshly dug potatoes, any variety, washed and sliced thin (about 1/8 inch)
Summer squash, I like to use mostly yellow varieties, sliced about 1/4-1/2 inch
Layer into a baking dish:
salt and pepper
repeat layers until all vegetables are used (or dish is full...)
Grated mild melting cheese about 1/2 cup (gouda, jack or mozzarella)
Fresh bread crumbs (a good thick layer)
Grated parmigiana cheese
Salt and pepper
Milk (I use skim). Pour this into the side of the casserole dish until it reaches half way up the side.
At 375 until its done. About 30 minutes. You can microwave it a bit first to speed up the cooking.

That is the yummiest looking casserole I've ever seen. Next year, I'm definitely going to try growing potatoes and squash.
I'm sure its good with store bought too, but, of course, there's nothing better than homegrown.
That does sound good. But those of us with failed zucchini crops can still go to a local farmer instead of the grocery store. I get my potatoes from a local organic grower and they're delicious.
Its all good! (Have a martini too.)
Kathy, on the way home last night I did indeed stop to buy some squash to go with the potatoes we'd bought. I had all the other ingredients, so... It was super-yummy!
Thank you for the fantastic recipe.
Oh I glad you liked it!
What a good idea! I went scavenging in the fridge and, with your recipe as my guide, made layers of summer squash, zucchini, yukon golds, onion and left-over chopped ham. The only cheese I had was provolone. It was great! Thanks for the idea - Daisy
I was thinking of adding onions too. I bet this was delicious!
My mouth is watering just looking at the photos. I will definitely have to try this one!
kathy - this looks amazing! i think I'll make this tonight using my only 2 zucchini! Thanks for the recipe!
I finally made this recipe. It was great! Thanks.
This looks so good! Going to try it out tomorrow!!
My favorite August recipe (well one of them). I am looking forward to making this again soon!
