I love summer! Who doesn’t?

One sure sign of summer is an abundance of squash! So what to do with all that squash?

Paleo Squash Casserole! This is definitely comfort food for me.

But, since going Paleo & AIP I have truly missed it. So of course once I reintroduced eggs I needed to create a Paleo version of the Classic Southern Recipe. 

Fortunately for me, my dad has a garden every summer & I have more organic squash than I know what to do with.

Canned Squash

Last summer, I canned so many quarts of squash & zucchini that I can make squash casserole every week & still have some left. Read How to Can it here. This is a great way to preserve all that wonderful summer squash for long term storage. You can put it in soups & stews, in my Sausage Breakfast Hash or just open it up, add some chopped onion & garlic & you have stewed squash.

This also allows me to skip a few steps since it’s already cooked.
