"So sorry for a low rating but we just didn't like this. Butternut is my favorite squash and this wasn't a recipe for us. I omitted onion and used less mayo as others stated and used 1 cup crackers and..." See more 6 T parmesan. I do have an easier way to peel butternut squash for all you lovers out there. Wash and pat dry your squash. Take a fork and pierce the skin many times all around. Place in microwave and nuke for 8 to 10 minutes. Depending on size. Remove using a pot holder because it will be extremely hot. Let cool a few minutes before peeling, it's easier to slice too, it works great! Then procede with whatever recipe your making. Hope this helps."

Replace the mayonnaise with vanilla yogurt and make it slight..." See morely less than 1/2 cup. You could also add a teaspoon of vanilla extract. 3. Replace the saltine crackers with Graham crackers The result is a sweet, vanilla flavored dish that lets the natural butternut squash flavor come through!"
