I made this the night before and cooked it the next day. The rice crispies and nuts really put this over the top. It was different and good. I may mix different types of squash next time and I'll bet it will be just as good as this!!

Absolutely SCRUMPTIOUS!!! Even my husband, son, and father who "don't eat squash" tried it and liked it. I used egg-beaters and fat-free evaporated milk. I didn't have Rice Krispies, so went hunting through my cabinet to find something suitable and came up with (are you ready for this?) Cinnamon Toast Crunch! Delicious. I could eat this for dessert. I'll be using this recipe yhe next time I'm asked to bring a vege dish to a pot-luck.

Okay - here's the honest truth. I have NEVER made squash for my family - it just seemed too....well.....too boring! My kids are picky when it comes to veggies (they are 5 yrs, 3 yrs old, and 7 mo's old). I was getting tired of the same old veggies all the time, so decided to try - squash! After browsing the recipes, I decided to try this one...WOW - We were NOT disappointed! My 3 yr old ate ALL his veggies, my 5 yr old ate most, and the 7 mo. old kept begging for more (naturally, we were not giving her the topping part, as it has nuts.) I myself LOVED it - and my DH's comment was, "I don't think I've EVER eaten squash in my life. THIS recipe's a KEEPER!" (after his 2nd helping of it!) THANKS FOR SHARING!

Made this for Christmas dinner. EVERYONE at the table requested the recipe. I doubled the topping just because I like extra! I was a little more work than I expected but well worth it! I have a feeling it will be a regular dish at our holiday meals from now on.

This was a great recipe. My whole family loved it. My husband who doesn't eat vegitables was eating this later for something sweet. It was like a desert. Very very Good.

We had this today for thanksgiving. A great creamy and sweet flavor. The topping was excellent. I doubled this and cooked it for a 1/2 hour longer. We will definately have this again, thanks for sharing!

This was delicious! I used Jumbo Whole Grain Rice Krispies, which are naturally sweeter than the original kind, so I did not add any sugar to the topping, and it was perfect. So yummy! Thanks for the recipe!

This is really good. I only used 1/4 cup brown sugar in the squash. Wish I had put the topping on sooner as it would fall off your fork when eating it. A great alternative to a sweet potato dish.
