Start real slow with the sour cream - I ruined mine right off the bat. Soupy and white.

I used one Butternut and one Buttercup squash. I didn't use any water and but did increase the brown sugar to 1/4 cup. I baked in the oven in a covered casserole dish for 1 hour before serving. ...

I altered recipe. I did not use listed ingredients. Instead I added chopped onions browned in butter and a couple of shakes of nutmeg to the mashed squash. People loved it.

Excellent recipe! Used a little less water (1/2 cup) and a little less sour cream (~1/2 cup)...this is an awesome recipe, very delicious!

they were pretty good and the squash taste was amazing.
