Butternut Squash Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Dr. Jenny

DH and I made this as a side last night to our veal chops and both of us LOVED this dish!! The recipe comes from the October issue of "Philadelphia" magazine and is credited to a local restaurant named Fork. Note that we used red skin potatoes as that is what we had on hand and we thought it turned out great (though that many small potatoes were a pain to remove the skin from). We also used two foil-lined baking sheets: one for potatoes, one for squash since they had different cooking times. Enjoy!

"These are the best mashed potatoes I've ever eaten" was DH's comment after swallowing the first bite, and I definitely agree! This was outstanding, and I'll make it again often for sure! For the heavy cream I used almond cream, also I didn't use salted butter because a didn't have any, but it was salty enough anyway. Thanks so much for sharing this :)<br/>Made for ZWT 9 Family Picks for The Apron String Travelers
