1/2 Vidalia or sweet onion
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons butter [softened]
1/2 cup milk or cream
1 cup of crushed Ritz crackers
salt and pepper to taste
Cut squash into bite size pieces. Dice onion as well. Put both ingredients into a vegetable steamer and steam until moderately soft. Usually about 7-8 minutes. Once steamed, transfer mixture to a bowl and slightly puree [or mash with a fork] until a little smoother. Add 1/2 cup milk or cream, butter and beaten egg. Mix in cheddar cheese and transfer to a buttered casserole dish. Sprinkle Ritz crackers along top of casserole.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

BLUEBERRY CREAM CHEESE TARTS [courtesy of Paula Dean]
I must warn you: these are ADDICTIVE!
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
12 vanilla wafers [Instead you can use the little graham cracker pie crusts, which I prefer] 1 (21-ounce) can blueberry filling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a paper cupcake liner in each cup of a muffin pan.
Beat cream cheese with a handheld electric mixer until fluffy. Add sugar and vanilla, beating well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Place a vanilla wafer, flat side down, in each muffin cup. Spoon cream cheese mixture over wafers. Bake for 20 minutes. Allow tarts to cool completely. Serve with blueberry filling on top, or pie filling of your choice.
