I have the perfect Thanksgiving (or anytime!!) side dish for you!
It super simple, super delicious, and everyone will love it!
I’ve used buttercup squash in this recipe because that’s what I grew in my garden, but buttercup squash would work equally well.
I love the combination of the sweet squash and the sharp bite of the cheddar.
Plus is pairs well with chicken, turkey or beef dishes! YUM!
Cheesy Buttercup Squash
1 buttercup squash
2 tbsp butter
½ cup shredded triple cheddar cheese
¼ cup grated parmesan
2-4 tbsp lowfat milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut the squash in half and remove the seeds. Place the squash, cut side down onto a rimmed baking tray. Carefully add about ¼-inch of water and place in the preheated oven. Bake for 1 hour or until the squash is tender.
Once done, scoop the squash out of the shell and into a bowl. Add the butter, cheeses, and enough milk to smoothly mash the squash (add even more milk if your squash is dry). Serve immediately.
