“This recipe is in great demand from my friends and family. It tastes similar to sweet potato souffle, with a custard-like texture. Use with any meal that sweet potatoes seem to go with (for example, ham, pork, etc). Yum yum!!!”

I like this recipie, but made a few changes as suggested by others... Instead of microwaving and then boiling, I cut in half, scooped out seeds and baked in oven halved side down until soft. Blended in a blender to make smooth puree. Used a 1/2 C Splenda, added 1tsp Cinnamon and 1/2tsp Nutmeg. For a topping I used 1/4C brown sugar, 1/8C butter and 2C Honey Bunches of Oats cereal (as suggested by another to use cornflakes, I used what I had on hand and loved the result). Will definately make again.

I love butternut squash and this is a great recipe to get started with. I've made this recipe many times and have made many modifications. First of all, I like to roast the squash rather than boiling it. I just cut the squash in half, scoop out the seeds, and roast it at 375 for 45 min-1 hour. It is easier to just scoop out the cooked sqaush than peel the skin off the little chunks. This does take longer, but in my opinion, it is much easier. I also add cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger which adds a nice flavor. The last thing that I change is that instead of the suggested topping, I use chopped pecans.

I am a newlywed and havne't done much cooking. I have prepared this for Thanksgiving ahead of time. I have never cooked butternut squash before so I didn't know that after you cook the squash that you are supposed to scoop the inside out of the "rind". I found that out after I mashed it up and it was still hard. I spent a good hour trying to pick the rind out of the mashed squash. It would be helpful if the reicpe mentioned that step for new cooks!
