Butternut Squash Puff

Good day! 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!

Butternut Squash Puff {A Pretty Life}



Butternut Squash Puff


  • 2 cups mashed cooked butternut squash (see Notes)
  • 1/2 cup spreadable cream cheese

  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • dash ginger
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
