Butternut Squash Casserole

November 22, 2012

Whoa! Thanksgiving is tomorrow today. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

We aren’t traveling for Thanksgiving for the first time in our marriage. It’s a little strange not to gather with family, except for the little one we made. :) As per MJ’s request, we are whipping up some of the more traditional dishes, making sure to scale them way down for our small group. It will be plenty pleasant to be home for the holiday even if we will miss the company.

Last Thanksgiving, my mom made this Butternut Squash dish and I adored it so I’m not sure why it’s taken me a whole year to make it again. She served it as a dessert because it is definitely sweet enough. However, I polished off a 1/3 of the pan for lunch yesterday so it can certainly be used as part of a meal (or for the whole thing!).

I’m not sure where the recipe originates from but my mom modified it quite a bit, cutting down the sugar among other things. Golden butternut squash topped with a sweet and crunchy topping. Delish!
