This is the recipe I submitted but I do not steam my squash. I slice it and then boil it in water for about 15-20 minutes or until tender. I drain the water off before adding the squash to the rest of the ingredients. This is really good. Hope you like it.

I don't think this recipe should say that the preparation time is only 10 minutes. I had to make the cornbread part first which took 25 minutes to bake. Also, the only change I made was I used butter instead of margarine. The taste was O.K. but I won't be making it again.

I've made this recipe twice lately, once for a weekend at the lake and again for my in-laws. I made one addition and that was chopped celery (simply because we put celery in our holiday dressing). Everyone raved about it. It is something I will keep on hand in the freezer.

It's like Thanksgiving in the summertime. So delicious. As one reviewer suggested, I boiled the squash and I added to onion and boiled that too. I even used fat free milk and fat free butter spray. The only change I would suggest is an increased cooking time. I prefer my dressing a little drier and this was very moist and mushy (but I still ate three helpings :).

This recipe is absolutely heavenly. The only alteration I make is I add 1 to 2 teaspoons of garlic powder to it and usually bake for about 40 minutes to get a slightly browner appearance. My wife works for a home for the physically and mentally challenged, and the clients demand that I fix this for them once a week to serve as a side with their supper, they enjoy it so much.

I rate this recipe 5 stars in taste however I had to increase the ingredients after my first try because this one makes only makes about 4 servings. Also, I had to remove it from oven approximately 3 times and stir because it was a bit too mushy, therefore, adding approximately 15 minutes cooking time. With these adjustments taken into consideration, this was a very tasty recipe that received lots of praise from those I served.

This is the best recipe. My kids don't like to eat veggies, so they actually eat this dressing with out knowing they are eating vegetables. The only difference is that I add poultry seasoning and a can of cream of chicken. This is a favorite with my family and friends.

Family loved this and so did I!! Used corn muffins crumbled, used butter instead of margarine and left onions out for kids-used a little onion powder. I will be making again and thanks for recipe.
