Cheesy Buttercup Squash

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.
