summer squash

i fixed this the other night in cold winter spirits and somehow with every bite i could smell fresh grass clippings, feel sun on my pale skin and so on. it's warm...

you need 2 of these,

yellow squash, sliced
1/4 c chopped onion {i use about 2 TB of dried onion}
1 egg
1/4 c mayonnaise (no substitutions)
2 t sugar
pepper to taste
1/4 c shredded cheddar cheese
2 TB crushed cornflakes w/ 1-1/2 t butter melted
or i use 1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
in a small saucepan, combine squash, onion, and 1/4 t salt. cover with water. bring to a boil. reduce heat;simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes or until squash is crisp tender. drain
in a bowl, beat the egg, mayonnaise, sugar, pepper and remaining salt until blended. stir in cheese and squash mixture. transfer to a greased 2 cup baking dish. toss the cornflakes or breadcrumbs over top. bake, uncovered, at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
