Georgia Summer Garden Casserole

Georgia Garden Casserole recipe card

“These are things I grow in my garden. Last year, I actually grew way too many zucchini and my family was sick of it, so I mixed in the green peppers and jalapenos and topped it with cheese and they loved it.”
Connie Allen – Gainesville, Ga


4 yellow squash

3 zucchini squash

2 jalapeno or cayenne peppers (without seeds)

5 green onions with about an inch of green tops cut into chunks

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Pat of salted butter



Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray 8-9” square casserole dish with cooking spray.

Add butter to dish.

Wash, quarter and cut vegetables.

Salt the vegetables and drain for at least 30 minutes on paper towels.

Pat moisture off vegetables and add to casserole dish.
