Maple Glazed Winter Squash

(originally made 12/2007)

Good morning! Hope everyone had a pleasant holiday. :) It was just the 3 of us, so I decided to try this recipe from Cooking Light. I made it early, before I put the turkey in, then put the mashed squash into a disposable loaf pan covered with foil for easy reheating. Very good, but I definitely wouldn't try this with "pancake syrup", you need the real thing! This could also easily be done with the cubed butternut squash, just place in a casserole dish or lipped pan and drizzle with syrup and dot with butter.
