Butternut Squash Casserole Recipe
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. Enjoy!
Butternut Squash Casserole (print recipe)
What you need:
1 butternut squash
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pinch salt
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, melted
8 ounces Nilla Wafers, crushed
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Peel the butternut squash with a potato 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.
