Holiday Squash Souffle

This a delicious souffle/casserole that has been a tradition in our family holiday menu.  It is so delicious and easy to make with basic ingredients.  We served it over Thanksgiving and will make it again for Christmas dinner.

Squash Souffle  – Pre-heat oven 400 deg. and grease a 1 1/2 quart casserole/souffle dish with butter.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups cooked and mashed butternut squash

1 stick butter (melted)

1/2 c sugar

1/2 c flour

Dash of salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

3 eggs

2 cups milk

Add the melted butter to the mashed squash and blend well with electric mixer.  Add sugar, flour, salt, and spices and blend well until smooth.  In a separate bowl beat eggs well.  Stir in milk.  Add squash mixture to the blended eggs and milk a little at a time until completely combined and smooth.  Pour into 1  1/2 qt. greased casserole dish.  Bake 50-60 mins at 400 deg.  until toothpick or knife comes out clean.  Do not worry if it does not puff up.  It will probably fall as it cools but it is delicious with a holiday meal, i.e. turkey, roast beef, etc..
