I wasn't quite sure when I was making this what the texture was supposed to be like. I used one butternut and one accorn squash, sliced them and removed the seeds, then peeled, cubed, and boiled the pieces along with the onions. Once they were good and soft, I smooshed them with the mixer, along with the rest of the ingredients. Topped with the bread crumbs and baked. I got lots and lots of compliments on it. Read More

Sounded good but we didn't care for it. Bland mushy and too much mayo. Read More

I cooked this recipe for my parents grandmother brother and my niece and nephew. They all loved it! It was extremely easy to make and even the kids wanted seconds. I added garlic and a little bit of sour cream and I used Italian breadcrumbs. This will be a summer favorite. Read More

This was a great recipe. It was delicious and easy to make. The thing I liked most is that it didn't taste like the usual squash casseroles that you use cream soups in. It has a very unique light taste. My husband loved it. Read More

This had really good flavor but the 2 eggs gave it an unexpected consistency that we didn't really like. Would make again with one or even no eggs. Read More

We liked the Posh Squash. I used Miracle Whip I was out of Mayo. The Whip gave it some Zip. The wife even took the left over s for lunch. Will make again. Read More

All the recipes I have ever seen for this use summer squash. I was surprised to see that so many people liked it with winter squash. It is wonderful with summer squash (and easier) so I will have to try with winter squash. Read More

I used half sour cream and half mayo added salt and pepper and only used one egg. The flavor of the suash was good but I was not crazy about the bread crumb topping. It seemed a little dry and didn't do much for the flavor. Read More
