Reviews for Honey-Thyme Butternut Squash
"I've made this several times and even those that don't like squash, loved this."
"This recipe is so good! In addition to making it with butternut squash, I've also made it with Heart of Gold and Sweet Dumpling squash. The results were equally delicious!"
"All I changed was adding a little more salt and pepper. This was delicious and SOOOO easy!"
"this was a nice twist to butternut squash. I didn't taste the honey much thought and I would cut back the cream to make it a thicker consistency. All in all good and a keeper."
"an easy to make side dish. i made it for Thanksgiving."
"very good, very easy. If you cook the squash in the microwave for around 30 minutes, the skin peels right off. Slice in half lengthwise, place in a pan with a little water and microwave on high for 20-30 minutes or until soft. Like you would for acorn squash. then I put into the mixer with ingredients. Very easy."
"I enjoyed the taste of this, as did my husband and one of my children. It does taste a lot like mashed potatoes with a faint honey taste and a faint pumpkin-like taste. However, several of my children really didn't care for it (and they aren't picky eaters in general), so we probably will stick with just plain butternut squash in the future."
"Pretty easy to make and everyone enjoyed it."
"I made this recipe for my in-law for Thanksgiving this year. I got lots of compliments on it, and it was easy to make the day before, then stick in the oven to get hot. So yummy!"
"Wonderful recipe! I love the flavors, texture and color this dish adds to a Holiday meal. T0fH rocks :)"
