Cheesy Bacon Squash Casserole

 For dinner I made this Cheesy Squash Casserole again but I added Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Pieces and a little more half and half to it and it was so good. This recipe is already delicious but the bacon made it even more delicious! The casserole dish was scraped out! I ate way too much and was so full after. If you've got squash and/or zucchini and don't know what to do with it, this is what you need to do with it! This or this other recipe I created is very good too Sausage Zucchini Bake.

Cheesy Squash Casserole
3 lbs yellow squash, sliced (I used some zucchini too)
1 lg onion, sliced
1/2 c. butter
2 1/2 c. crushed Ritz crackers
1/4 c. butter
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 1/2 c. half & half
1/2 lb Velveeta Cheese, cubed
2.8 oz pkg Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Pieces

Preheat oven to 350 º. Boil squash and onion in salted water until barely tender, drain. While squash is cooking prepare topping by melting 1/2 c. butter in skillet, saute crackers in butter until crisp and browned, set aside. Make a white sauce by melting 1/4 c. butter in a sauce pan, add cornstarch and half & half and mix together. Add Velveeta cheese, stir until smooth. Stir in bacon pieces. Arrange squash and onion in 9x13 baking dish, pour white sauce over squash, top with cracker topping. Bake 25 min. or until hot and bubbly. Enjoy!
