This is a healthy recipe flavored with autumn cranberries and pecans. It goes very well with a roasted turkey and makes a colorful side dish. —Mary Ann Lee, Clifton Park, New York

Ingredients

  • 1 large butternut squash (about 6 pounds), peeled, seeded and cubed
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • TOPPING:
  • 2 cups soft whole wheat bread crumbs

Directions

Place squash in a Dutch oven; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook 15-20 minutes or just until tender. Drain. In a large bowl, mash squash and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large nonstick skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Add to squash. Stir in eggs, sugar, salt and pepper. Gently fold in cranberries and pecans. Transfer to a 13x9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray.
For topping, combine bread crumbs and melted butter; sprinkle over top. Bake 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Freeze option: Cool unbaked casserole. Sprinkle with topping; cover and freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake casserole as directed, increasing time as necessary for a knife inserted in the center to come out clean.
