Butternut Kugel

This baked butternut squash side dish is delicious! Just mix it up & pop it in the oven to cook while you get the rest of dinner ready!

Usually I think of eating butternut  squash roasted with some maple syrup or in a delicious soup. Here is recipe for a butternut kugel ( baked pudding) that is savoury. I used to make this many years ago and had forgotten about it but happily I have rediscovered it.  Simple yet satisfying.  A good side with any kind of protein. This recipe can easily be adapted  for Passover, using matzoh meal ( matzo crumbs) instead of bread crumbs in the mixture.

NEW NOTE: You can use frozen butternut squash to make this even easier! Or pre-cut cubes found in the produce section…they both still need to be cooked first, but if you do not want to have to cut up a butternut squash..try either of these options!

3 lbs butternut, peeled, seeded and cut into cubes
1/4 cup oil
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup bread crumbs or matzo meal ( for Passover)
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
Preheat oven to 375F
Grease a 9 inch square pan or casserole dish of same size 
1. Boil the prepared butternut squash until soft. Drain off the water then mash using a fork or potato masher.
2.Mix the rest of the ingredients with the squash, combining well.
3. Put the squash mixture into the greased pan and smooth out.
4. Bake for approx 1 hour

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
