butternut squash - peeled, seeded, quartered, and cut into 1/2-inch slices
Excellent. All of my children loved it including my picky 13 y/o and 4 y/o boys who don't like squash. I didn't have any rum so I substituted 1 1/2 tsp rum extract which is less than the recommended substitution. However, I did not want it to be overpowering for the kids. They are already requesting I make it again.
I add some cranberries to enhance the color the dish.
This is an easy prepared dish.
It tastes sweet, especially good when eat with salty foods.
I love its simple and original taste of butternut squash.
My husband absolutely loved this recipe. It will be part of not only our holiday meals but anytime we want something special.
I thought this would have more of a maple flavor but I couldn't really taste it. All I could really taste when it was done was the rum flavor. I couldn't taste the nutmeg either. Maybe I just had a really huge squash??
This was delicious! So good I'm making it part of our Thanksgiving dinner, but must quadruple the recipe. Everyone loved it, all ages. Thanks for sharing!!
My Daughter literally couldn't wait to cooked all, she kept licking the spoons I was using to stir ( had to wash them several times, lol)
So far is a keeper!
