"I had a new recipe Ingredient Challenge on the Cook's Corner Forum for this week. Our freezer had a # of boxes of frozen butternut squash, so I decided to try this recipe! I DID adjust the recipe since it's just my Mom and me at home. Here is my adaptation: I used 2 Tbsp. butter to saut? 1 medium onion, finely chopped. Then I cooked the frozen squash in our microwave just 4 minutes, stirred the squash and cooked again 3 minutes longer until squash was fully done. I'd used one 12-oz. package frozen butternut squash. I added: 1 cup prepared cooked and crumbled Hormel bacon and the squash to the onion mixture, along with the flour and 1/3 cup of the half and half cream! I did omit the garlic! I used the 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour, and instead of evaporated milk, I used 1/3 almost 2/3 cup half and half cream (DIVIDED) and about 1-1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth ( more- just ENOUGH to thin soup out). I'd halved this recipe on the broth and milk! The seasonings: I used 3/4 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper and 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. curry powder. I didn't need a blender as the squash was liquidy after I'd cooked it! I'd brought the soup to a boil over medium heat and stirred 5 minutes, adding just enough broth, but also NOT wanting soup to be runny, either! I'd added about 1-1/2 to 2 cups baby carrots, already cooked and which I mashed with a potato masher for extra color! I'd say that this recipe is INTERESTING! I've learned to make do with what I have in our home and adapt recipes accordingly! Also when making soup, sometimes the soup needs to blend the flavors and mature to REALLY taste good! I am glad that I tried this recipe! delowenstein"

"Super easy & very delicious! I needed something to do with leftover squash that had already been salter & peppered, this recipe was great!"
