Top-ranked recipe named "Butternut Squash Casserole"
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
If you want to start with a raw squash, microwave it for a few minutes and then cut it in half and scoop it out. Cut it up and boil for about 15 minutes. Drain, peel, and mash. (Using a cheese slicer works great for peeling safely!) Otherwise, you can use pre-prepared squash.
In a 9x13 inch casserole dish, combine 3 cups mashed butternut squash, white sugar, milk, vanilla extract, salt, flour, eggs and 1/4 cup melted margarine.
Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until set.
In a medium bowl combine crushed vanilla wafers, 1/2 cup melted margarine and brown sugar. Crumble over top of cooked casserole and return to oven to brown.
Alternately, you can prep the squash by cutting it into 4 pieces (cut the top off above the "belly"; then, slice each piece in halves), remove seeds with an ice-cream scooper, and bake at 350 for about 45 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool; it will now be super easy to remove from the skin and ready to go in your casserole!

Hwortmann 5 months agoSoooo good! Served on a cool fall day at the cabin, and it was devoured! All my family said it tastes more like squash dessert than casserole. This one's going into my favorites!

LaCourFamily 2 years agoThis was ridiculously good! My kids have always begrudgingly eaten squash (of all kinds). Not this, though. It's going on the Christmas menu this year. I think I am also going to try it as a pie, too!
