Excellent! We don't have kids so we're not trying to hide anything, but a message to parents, the squash disappears. I added a shallot and garlic to the butter, also substituted fat free half and half since I had no milk. Used 1T butter & 1T flaxseed butter substitute. I am from VT so always VT cheddar on hand, used sharp and extra sharp (cows don't produce yellow or orange milk, lol). Also added a bit of salt and fresh ground pepper. An absolute keeper!
Too sweet. The main problem with this recipe is this: "1 butternut squash, halved lengthwise and seeded." How much squash? I am guessing that my disappointing dinner was because my butternut was too big, but how big is too big? Regardless, I am deleting this one from my recipe database.
I made this for my kids and their friends for dinner. Even the picky eaters enjoyed it! Don't be overwhelmed by the amount of squash that's in it, the sharpness of the cheese hides flavor a bit. The next time I make it, I'll probably add a cup of cooked and chopped bacon to add to the layers of flavor. Great recipe, thank you for sharing! Review written on 11-3-14
Just finished eating this and it is delicious. I made a few subtle changes - added garlic, salt and pepper as well as more milk because I like it very creamy.
very easy, and even the kids liked it.
Served this to my husband, kids and grandkids (so a diverse mix of ages and tastebuds). No one disliked it but no one thought it was spectacular either. I followed the recipe exactly other than to add a bit of heavy cream to the milk. I found it bland, though the squash did add a touch of sweetness and texture that was nice. Next time I would jazz it up more with some garlic and black pepper at the very least. I would probably also use some sharp cheddar and maybe smoked Gouda. Its a solid and easy recipe with a good addition of fiber and vitamins from the squash. It just needs more flavor.
This was delicious. The butternut squash gave it a delicious flavor. Everyone in my house loved it. I will definately be making this again and sharing the recipe with family.
Great simple recipe. I made it in advance and then just heated it a little longer when needed.
