This came originally from a recipie booklet of bed and breakfast inns that was a premium from cigarettes. I don't remember the inn or the brand of cigarettes. I bought the book at a used book store. I didn't find any other recipies worth saving... This is a really great side dish. I fix it every Thanksgiving, doubling or trebling the recipie, depending. Of course, I don't wait just for Thanksgiving, and it's really good leftover for breakfast.

Butternut squash and apples are the perfect fall combination. This recipe will be added to my regular rotation for sure. My husband and I both loved it. I modified this recipe a bit by eliminating the cornflakes (I just sprinkled walnuts throughout the dish) and reducing the amount of sugar by quite a bit. I probably used about 1/8 c. white sugar and a 4 tablespoons of brown sugar total. I used gala apples, which are fairly sweet to start, and they turned out great.
This could be used as a dessert. I really liked the taste of the squash and apples. the Cornflakes was a suprise an actual nice one. I served it with Roast Pork This will be made very often as it was excellent.
