I think this recipe would taste different depending upon what squash you used. For 1/2 recipe, I used 1 pattypan and the other two I don't know the name of. They look like small dappled acorns with an orange flesh. Anyways, I cut the last two in half and baked them face down while I baked another dish. That way, I just scooped the flesh out and mashed it. I chopped the pattypan and onions, boiled them and blendered them and combined with the other squash. I used Kashi TLC crackers and ground them in the blender. Everyone, except the squash hater, tried and like them. The bacon adds flavor to it. Nice warming comfort food.
