Cheesy Butternut Squash Stuffing

By • November 5, 2009 • 4 Comments



Author Notes: My family loves stuffing, but never directly out of the bird. We like to prepare fun different varieties of stuffing baked in a casserol dish separate from the turkey so that it forms a crunchy, delicious texture. This layered stuffing combines sweet butternut squash with onions, sage, mushrooms, and nutty parmesan cheese.Loves Food Loves to Eat

I tried this last night and it was delicious! I love the surprise of the squash and parmesan cheese, but the familiar stuffing flavors like sage. Next time I might add a little more broth, as the edges were a bit dry.
