Au Gratin Potatoes with Squash Recipe

After volunteering to take a potato casserole to a friend's party, I thought I'd do a twist on au gratin by adding squash. Everyone just loved it.—Patricia Harmon, Baden, Pennsylvania

"This recipe looked so good. I tried it, and my family gave it a thumbs down. Doubt I would attempt a second try at it, but the blend of potatoes and squash in this recipe is not a good one. Maybe cut back the butternut squash portion."

"A great potluck dish. I didn't use a strong enough cheese to enhance the flavor as I did not have shredded Swiss on hand. A sharp cheddar would be good as well."
