The summer months are here and so is entertaining! The Bitter Socialite Trace Barnett shared a Summer Squash Casserole on 'Atlanta & Company' to get us in the sweet summer spirit.

Summer Squash Casserole

Serves 6–8

This is my absolute favorite recipe for squash casserole. It’s so perfect for using up the bounty of fresh summer squash that my garden provides. Combined with mayonnaise, sour cream, saltine crackers, and lots of cheese, it’s about as Southern as it gets!
