Ingredients1 h servings 210 cals
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place the halved acorn squash cut-side down in a glass baking dish; add 1/2-inch water.
- Bake in the preheated oven until soft and tender, about 30 minutes. Remove squash from oven; scoop out flesh.
- Place potatoes in a saucepan with enough water to cover; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until soft and tender, about 20 minutes. Drain potatoes.
- Mash potatoes partially in a large bowl; stir in squash flesh, butter, mustard, dill, salt, and pepper. Add milk gradually, mashing to desired consistency.
- Cook's Notes:
- You can peel potatoes or leave skin on, as desired.
- Substitute stone-ground mustard for the Dijon mustard, if desired.
- Margarine can be used in place of butter.
- Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
