Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    Butternut Squash, 4 cup, cubes
    Egg, fresh, 2 large
    Salt, 1 tsp
    Granulated Sugar, .5 cup
    *Margarine-like spread, Country Crock, regular, 3 tbsp

    Topping

    *Pineapple, canned, 1 cup, crushed, sliced, or chunks
    Egg, fresh, 1 large
    *Flour, white, .25 cup
    Granulated Sugar, .25 cup

Directions

Cook the squash - I prefer to cut it in half, scoop out seeds and wrap in plastic and then microwave until tender. But you can use whatever method of cooking squash you prefer. Once cooked, place squash in a casserole dish and mash. Add sugar, salt and margarine. Beat eggs well and add to mixture while beating well. (If you are making this while the squash is still hot, you don't want the eggs to cook before mixed together.) Set casserole to the side.
Topping: Mix all topping ingred together in a bowl. Pour over the top of the squash.
Bake, uncovered for about 45 minutes. The dish will become light and fluffy (slightly souffle-like)

    People ...be real, this recipe has 3 eggs and serves twelve....this is a healthy recipe...you need to look at the facts and ease up and enjoy rather than grump about sodium, cholesterol, sugar and fat. I'm not saying eat all you want but put it in perspective and relax a little! - 9/24/10

    I don't cook much but I go back to this recipe again and again, esp for pot lucks and big family dinners. Works equally well as a side dish or dessert. I use a 2-lb squash for the proportions listed, add a little more sugar if a 3-lb squash. I like using crushed pineapple for its consistency here. - 1/9/10

    This was absolutely delicious. I added some cinnamon to the squash mixture and used the crushed pineapple. The recipe did not state what temp to cook it at, but I did it at 375 degrees for the 45 min. and that worked well. I am cooking it for a pork BBQ next weekend. - 9/6/10

    WONDERFUL, *SUPER EASY* recipe! As for person concerned about the need for "serious tweaking" for the worry of sugar/cholesterol: Egg Beaters and Splenda/Stevia! From reading the above reviews, this is a recipe most will make for 'special' occasions, not every day, but it CAN be 'tweaked' easily. :) - 9/22/10

  • Am I missing something, but I can't seem to find the temperature to cook this at for the 45 mins. I'm taking a guess at 350 degrees. If it should be differently, someone please let me know. Thanks. - 10/7/12

  • anyone tell me the oven temperature you baked it at? i have it ready to go in the oven and just realized there is no temperature in the directions - So far it's been a lot of work so I hope I can have a make it work moment! - 12/25/11

  • This was the bomb! I served it with a pan fried ham steak and broccoli. Hubby LOVED it! I baked it in a 9" x 9" pan and cut it into 6 servings. Double the calories but oh so worth it! I did use egg beaters and added a smidge of vanilla. I froze the other 4 servings for a quick meal using same menu! - 10/16/11

  • It was great as a side and as a dessert with no sugar added ice cream, too. As a dessert, eaten alone or as a veggie, it was wonderful. - 1/2/11

    Butternut squash and pineapple are both naturally very sweet so I find that the sugar called for is too much. Also, the amount of eggs brings the cholesterol level over the top. This dish needs some serious tweaking. - 9/22/10
