Butternut Souffle | Flavor, NC

Ingredients:

  • 1 large or 2 small Butternut Squash
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 stick softened butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Cut squash lengthwise, remove seeds. Place in a medium baking dish, flesh down, and cover 3/4 way with water. Roast squash at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a fork can penetrate the squash easily. Remove the flesh from the skin. Place squash, cream and dry seasonings in mixing bowl and whip well with mixer or hand held beaters until smooth. Combine flour, butter and brown sugar and pecans. Mix well to create a crumble consistency. Place squash mixture in a 9×12 baking dish. Top evenly with crumble mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes, until bubbly around edges and brown on top. Serve.

    Always enjoy your show and ideas. I’m trying to recall the easy method of peeling the Butternut Squash.
    I have seen the bake at 350 or until the fork pierces method.BUT that was followed by a blended recipe.
    I thought the cook did the same except let it rest for a couple of minutes then peeled it. I was going to cut the squash in cubes to roast maybe. HELP? Thanks Robert in Emerald Isle.

      Robert, we are so glad you enjoy the show! This chef didn’t peel the butternut squash. He always cooked it and then worked with it. “Cut squash lengthwise, remove seeds. Place in a medium baking dish, flesh down, and cover 3/4 way with water. Roast squash at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a fork can penetrate the squash easily. Remove the flesh from the skin and set aside.” For one recipe, he did cut it into cubes and removed it from the skin to then roast it a bit in order to caramelize it before using it in a recipe.
