I found this recipe in a magazine years ago and thought it was the best squash dish I’d ever tasted. When I serve it to guests, they always agree. –Fran Swartzentruber of Sebring, Ohio

If I make these again I would make sure to hand mash them instead of using a beater. With the beater, it became more of a soup then being mashed squash. It still tasted good and soup is a nice change now and again so I guess it depends on how you want to do it.
