Reviews for Winter Squash Souffle Bake
"My 14 month old really liked this."
"I have so many squash this year that I was happy to find this recipe. I used 3 cups of fresh, cooked winter squash puree (drain well) instead of the purchased squash. This souffle' reminds me of the egg custard pie that my mother made when I was a child."
