Gwen's Original Squash Casserole

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by chefRD

This dish has been a staple on Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember. I don't remember my mom making squash any other way. I just know that when I tried it as a child for the first time I remember how delicious it was. A Thanksgiving without it is not a real Thanksgiving at my house. Other's have tried to duplicate it and failed. There is only one way to make it and this is it. Don't substitute or change anything, follow the directions to a "T". Enjoy!
