Welcome to a fun event! Today there are 9 of us hosting a virtual progressive Thanksgiving dinner!
Dig in…you are going to discover a lot of inspiration!
As part of this progressive dinner, I’m serving up a Butternut Squash Puff!
This recipe is a twist to a family favourite that you can find almost every year on our Thanksgiving table…Turnip Puff (trust me, it’s divine!). But this year I wanted to try something different with one of my favourite vegetables…Butternut Squash.
This dish is creamy, rich and so full of flavour! Delish!
- 2 cups mashed cooked butternut squash (see Notes)
- ½ cup spreadable cream cheese
- 1 cup dry bread crumbs, divided (see Notes)
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 egg
- dash ginger
- salt & pepper to taste
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- In a mixer combine the butternut squash, cream cheese, brown sugar, egg, ginger, salt & pepper and ½ cup of the bread crumbs. Mix well.
- Add to a 1 L baking dish.
- In a small bowl mix together the melted butter and remaining ½ cup of bread crumbs.
- Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture onto the squash mixture.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown.
- It's so easy to make butternut squash puree! Refer here to my post on roasting squash for instructions!
- You can use any type of bread that you like for the bread crumbs. I like to use whole wheat bread.
