Cooking MethodCasserole

Ingredients

  • 1 butternut squash, 2.5-3 lbs.
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • pinch white pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon buttery spread
  • 2 pounds Granny Smith apple, unpeeled, sliced
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 cups corn flakes or Fiber One Cereal
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons melted margarine
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

Instructions

  1. Measure 3 cups of cornflake cereal and then put through a food processor to make coarsely chopped crumbs. If you already have a box of crushed cornflake crumbs on hand, then use about 2/3 cup.
     
  2. Cut squash in half lengthwise. Scrape out seeds and steam 30 minutes, or bake on foil, cut-side down, in 350 degrees F oven until tender. (If baking, it will take approximately 40-45 minutes.)
     
  3. Scrape out pulp and mash or beat in mixer or processor until smooth. Add butter, brown sugar, salt and pepper; set aside.
     
  4. Slice apples very thinly. In skillet, melt buttery spread and add apples. Sprinkle with sugar and cover, simmering until barely tender. Spread in an 8 or 9" casserole and spoon squash mixture evenly over apples.

    TOPPING: Mix all ingredients (corn flakes, pecans, melted butter and brown sugar) and spread over squash and bake in 325 deg. oven for 12-15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
