Thanks for posting this so that my boyfriend and I could try something different. After reading the previous review I made some changes to the recipe. First, I boiled the squash/onion mixture in some leftover homemade vegetable broth, and used about 1 cup of the liquid. Next, I added a heaping spoonful (don't know exact measurement) of Emeril's Bam seasoning to the squash after cooking. I also added another tablespoon of flour and mixed that together with the wet ingredients before adding to the squash (to avoid flour clumps). In the last 10 minutes, I added a layer of cheese and then crushed saltines. After broiling the saltine crust for about 2 minutes, I added a small layer of crunchy friend onions and finished broiling. Yum!! The mixture did turn out very moist and soft, like a dressing, but it was very good.

Bliss, I'm sorry, but this recipe was only OK. DH & I both agreed it's 3 stars. It was just really ... bland. It had the consistency of a dressing, sort of, .... I think it could use some spices?
