    puppitypup's Note:

    This is my favorite of our family recipes. I've listed it as my mom always made, but I love to play with it. On Mexican night, I'll add a pinch of cumin or chili powder and use a Mexican cheese like Queso Ranchero. On Italian night, I'll add a pinch of Italian seasoning and use mozzerella cheese.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    pattipans

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Place pattipans in boiling water and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
    3. 3
      Make white sauce with butter, flour, salt and milk. (On medium heat, melt butter, stir in flour and brown slightly, add salt, then add milk a little at a time, stirring constantly. (I usually use a about a third more milk than written above.) Once all milk is added, continue to cook and stir for a minute or two.
    4. 4
      Turn off heat, add cheese and crushed saltines to white sauce and stir.
    5. 5
      Scoop out the middle of each pattipan to make little "bowls". (I use my grapefruit knife.) Turn the pattipans over on a plate (so the juices drain out) and set aside.
    6. 6
      Add scooped out portion of squash to sauce and mash with a potato masher. Taste sauce and adjust seasonings as needed.
    7. 7
      Fill squash with the sauce, pouring the excess over the top.
    8. 8
      Bake for about 15 minutes, or until done.
    9. 9
      Note: If using table salt, use only a pinch rather than 1/8 t.

      What a fun recipe! They were simple to make, and we enjoyed them as a vegetarian main dish. I did add some Italian seasoning and garlic, as suggested, and used "Pizza" cheese. Then I sprinkled the tops with Parmesan and a handful of real bacon bits (from a jar) before baking.

      This was very good served with my braised beef dinner. I used the cheddar cheese and added a pinch of garlic powder. Delicious! I will be making these again. Made for Review My Recipe Tag. Thanks for a great recipe Julie!
