Butternut Squash Casserole

Haven't had a lot of time to do a new post today, busy with relatives before the wedding tomorrow.  We ate at a seafood restaurant for lunch that was quite delicious, but I forgot to take any pictures of my meal.  I had some tilapia and shrimp.  Delicious!

Here's another recipe for butternut squash, this time a casserole.

Ingredients:
  • 1 butternut squash
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup margarine, melted
  • TOPPING
  • 1/2 (16 ounce) package vanilla wafers, crushed
  • 1/2 cup margarine, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425F
  2. Put butternut squash in the microwave and cook on high, until soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Cut in half, scoop out seeds and cube. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add squash and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and mash.
  3. 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.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until set.
  5. 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.
