these turned out really good - warning: it does not taste like hash browns though. i used my mini chopper to "grate" the squash, since i kept cutting my knuckles trying to use the grater, but even my crazy picky boyfriend devoured these...a definite keeper, thanks Made for PAC Spring 2009
I first saw this recipe on Hungry Girl too. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. Def. dry the squash well. I also added some salt free spicy seasoning for an added kick. I prepped everything early in the day and let it sit in the fridge until I was ready to cook. Even my DH thought these were great!!!
I had a little trouble with the logistics of this recipe. It is not clear how to get the butternut squash to shred. I ended up cooking it until tender, at which point it was certainly not "shredable," although soft enough to remove from the shell. I cooked as directed from that point, but might as well have made a casserole, as they did not brown well either. Surprisingly, they were okay with the catsup, but ended up being an awful lot of trouble for an average result. I had high hopes that this was going to be a way to get DH to eat squash, but no luck here!
