Wash and slice squash into small medallions or dice into smaller pieces if the squash is large. Put squash in a large bowl for mixing with the filling. In a separate bowl, mix together the soup, mayo, eggs, cheese, onion, salt and pepper. Pour over squash and stir until well mixed. Pour into casserole dish.

Crush crackers while in "tube" using a rolling pin or meat tenderizer. Pour crackers into a bowl. Melt butter and stir into crackers until moist.Put topping on casserole.
