COOK: Squash Casserole — Bob's own recipe! Tell us how it turns out, if you try it.
Cook 2 medium squash. Carnival is my favorite squash as it tastes the most like a sweet potato. Cut in half and remove seeds (seeds can be dried and roasted later for additional treats.) Before baking, I rub on a little organic safflower oil and lightly season with salt and pepper.
Put in a covered dish (skin side down) for 1 hour @ 350 degrees or until fully cooked. Makes a little over 5 cups.
Once cool enough to handle, remove the skin, mash and then blend in the following and put in a covered casserole dish (I use organic ingredients as much as possible):
For streusel topping, combine and mix the following and spread on top of above mixture already in the dish:
Cook casserole at 350 for 30 minutes until topping has browned.
