"Liked this very much, because sometimes you get sick of the squash bakes full of brown sugar and crispy rice toppings. However, I didn't really like the onions (I saut?ed them first) or the parmesan on top, would stick to only the crackers for topping. Very mild squash flavour, nice for a change!"
"Have made this recipe several times. I saute my onion, use light mayo and the round buttery type of crackers for the top( have made with saltines but prefer the other)."
"This dish is awesome - i did sautee the onions which i'm sure is the best - they weren't crunchy nor were they to strong. However i got a few comments wondering what the dish was, although they all really liked it quite a few thought it was eggs! It definitely does not have a strong butternut squash flavor - if that's what your looking for."
"Just made this recipe again for maybe the 10th time. Love it still. I did do 2 things differently. I sauteed the onions first and I omitted the sugar (by accident). Still good. I give out the recipe to friends so they can try it. It will be in my recipe box forever."
"This is a great way to enjoy butternut squash! Decrease to 1/3 cup onions if you don't want a strong flavor in the dish. I substituted Ritz which added to the buttery flavor of the topping. Nice autumn side dish for a meal."
