I have quite a few butternut squash in my garden, so I've been trying to find new ways to use them. I did an Internet search and I found a ton of recipes, so I chose the ones that got the best reviews. I found this one at allrecipes.com.
Amazing Butternut Squash
10" dutch oven
1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cubed
1/4 cup mayo or plain yogurt
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 clove minced garlic
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp. brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup bread crumbs (I used Panko)
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
12 Tbs. butter, melted
In your dutch oven over a full spread of coals, boil the squash until it is very tender. Remove from heat and drain squash. In the pot, mash the squash. Add the mayo, onion, egg, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Mix well and spread in the bottom of the pot. In a medium bowl, mix together the crackers, Parmesan and butter. Sprinkle over the squash. Bake at 350° for 35-45 minutes or until the topping is lightly browned. Serves 6.
The Finished Product
I wouldn't go so far as to call this squash amazing. I wasn't really impressed. I mean it was good, but it wasn't anything special. I have enough recipes for squash that I like better that I probably won't make this again. Grade C.
