Mashed Butternut Squash
No holiday meal is complete without the classic side dish Mashed Butternut Squash. I would always have this at Thanksgiving and Christmas, but let's be honest here. This is a side dish that can easily be made any time of year, especially during the winter months. It's perfect with both turkey and chicken and satisfies those with a sweet tooth without any added sugar.
- 2 Butternut Squash Halved and seeds removed
- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
- ¼ Cup Butter
- ½ Cup Milk Optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Drizzle cut side of squash, season with salt and pepper. Place cut side down on a lined baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes or until fork tender.
Let squash cool, then scoop out squash into a large bowl. Mash squash until smooth. Add butter and milk and stir to fully incorporate. Serve and enjoy!
