Simply roasted, mashed and stirred...how much easier can it get? This is a great side dish to anything. I served it with roasted Cornish game hens and sauteed green beans and spinach with garlic. Depending on the size of your squashes you may need to adjust the amount of orange juice. I used a small butternut because they taste better than the large ones. *Also, a little Bourbon and brown sugar would taste really nice in this!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- 2Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
- 3Cut the squashes in half and scoop out the seeds.
- 4Place the squashes cut side down onto the foil and bake until soft, about 45-60 minutes.
- 5When cool enough to handle (I use hot mitts so they don't get too cooled off), scoop out the soft flesh into a bowl.
- 6Stir in the butter and mash.
- 7Then stir in the orange juice, a little at a time, until you reach the consistency of creamy mashed potatoes.
- 8Add more butter if you want.
