Mashed Butternut Squash

Mashed Butternut Squash

Michelle Boulé
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.
