A delicious, sweet squash casserole that's a holiday family favorite! The crunchy topping is to die for and it makes enough to feed the whole family at Thanksgiving or Christmas!
Oh my goodness.
I can't even begin to explain how delicious this recipe is!
My amazing sister, Shannon made this for Christmas at my Mom's house this year, and I completely fell in love with the first bite! It reminds me of sweet potato pie, but much, much better.
This recipe is still a family favorite over three years later! I'm updating this post with new pictures that were taken Thanksgiving 2016!
My sister still makes it for us, which makes it even more special!
I love foodie family traditions and I hope this recipe becomes a new family favorite for you! Happy Holidays!
Sweet Butternut Squash Casserole
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Peel the butternut squash with a peeler and cube. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add squash and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and mash.
In a bowl, combine 3 cups mashed butternut squash, sugar, milk, vanilla extract, salt, flour, eggs and 1/4 cup melted butter. Pour into a 9x13 glass baking dish.
Bake for 45 minutes or until set.
In a medium bowl, combine crushed Nilla Wafers, 1/2 cup melted butter and brown sugar. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the casserole and return to the oven until the topping is lightly browned.
