Butternut Squash Puff Tips & Tricks
- Butternut Squash: This recipe requires cooked and mashed/pureed butternut squash. To do this you will need to roast a butternut squash ahead of time…this recipe takes about 1 hour and 25 minutes if you roast the squash first.
- To mash or puree? I like to puree the squash after it’s roasted to make sure there are no strings or chunks in the squash. Pureeing also makes it creamy.
- Make Ahead Tip! Roast the squash, then puree it ahead of time (a day or 2 ahead). This will help you save time when you assemble this dish for baking.
- Cream Cheese: You can use block cream cheese, or cream cheese spread.
So if you are looking for something a little different for your Thanksgiving dinner, this dish is it!Print
