My mother made this dish every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Now I make it for my family every year. Whenever we get together for a big meal, they always request I bring it! Delicious!

I made this for Thanksgiving, with changes, and it was terrific. I omitted the condensed milk and the sugar, and made a 1/2 batch of the topping. It was a delicious side dish with just enough sweet that you could still taste the squash. Next time I will make with evaporated milk to save a bit of the expense.

This recipe was well-received at the dinner I brought it to. I, however, did make quite a few adjustments. I left out the sugar, increased the sweetened condensed milk to 3/4 cup, added another egg, some cinnamon and nutmeg and at least doubled the amount of pecans in the topping. It was a hit, but I heard lots of jokes about hardening of the arteries because of all the yummy butter in it. My husband says it tastes like a cross between pumpkin and pecan pie.

OH MY WORD! This is the best butternut squash I have ever had! I made it last Christmas and probably 6-7 more family occasions since. Everyone loves it! My mother in law actually asked ME for the recipe! Trust me, that says alot.
