Reviews forButternut Squash Supreme
"I prepared this dish for the first time and instead of using 3 lbs. of butternut squash, I used a 12-oz. package of cooked frozen butternut squash, cooked in my microwave per microwave instructions. I used 1/4 to 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (grated), 1/2 large onion, chopped, 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 3/4 cup milk, 2 beaten eggs, 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs, 2 Tbsp. MARGARINE. I cooked the squash, then stirred the other ingredients into the cooked squash except the bread crumbs and the margarine. I used a 1-quart to 1-1/2 qt. casserole dish, greased. I then sprinkled top with bread crumbs and dotted with the margarine and baked 45 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Since I cook for myself now, I use a smaller-sized baking dish! Thank you for sharing this recipe! delowenstein"
"Excellent! So easy, and the flavor is perfect."
"This is my familys favorite butternut squash recipe. Tonight will be the 3rd time I have made it and this will be the second Thanksgiving"
"Bland, would not make this again. Maybe 2 cups of chedder and some spices might make this interesting, but as is, it was dry and bland."
