making life sweeter
There’s nothing quite like the flavor of a fresh, true sweet onion, but cooking with these little gems can be a bit tricky. The unique composition of a sweet onion makes them a wonderful ingredient in some dishes and a terrible choice for others. For the best results when cooking sweet onions consider these helpful tips:

Use sweets: Raw in sandwiches and salads; lightly grilled-whole or sliced, gently roasted or quickly baked; in stir-frys; power bowls, street tacos and other fresh fare. They are delicious caramelized but take care not to stir them too rigorously or cook them at too high a temperature

Avoid using in: Slow-cooker or long-simmering recipes like chili, stews, soup or in baked casserole dishes. Prolonged cooking breaks down the delicate texture and flavor of sweet onions.

Summer Squash Casserole
3 tablespoons butter
2 pounds yellow squash or zucchini, sliced into 1/4" rounds
1 cup sweet onion, chopped
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika

Topping Ingredients:
1 sleeve of Ritz crackers, crushed
3 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat your oven to 350 F. Spray an 11×7-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.

Heat butter in a medium-sized skillet to medium heat on the stove top. Once the butter is melted, add squash, onion, salt, pepper, garlic and paprika. Fold gently to combine. Cook until the squash softens, about 10 minutes. Once cooked, drain he squash in a colander for 10 minutes.

Stir together eggs, mayonnaise, sour cream and cheese in a mixing bowl. Gently fold in the squash. Pour the mixture into your baking dish.

Combine the topping ingredients in a small bowl. Spread in an even layer over the squash. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the topping is browned. Remove from heat and let stand for a few minutes before serving.
