    This was a super good recipe! I didn't use frozen squash, I roasted a whole butternut in the oven and used that instead. I used whole milk instead of non-dairy creamer because non-dairy creamer just freaks me out...I wonder if it's really a food or something concocted in a lab somewhere. I also swapped brown sugar for the white sugar. Other than that, the recipe remained the same and I and my other dinner party guests loved this recipe. Thanks for submitting it!  -  07 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was very good; I made a few alterations using my MIL's traditional recipe. I used 2% instead of the creamer and added an extra 1/4c (3/4c total). I also added 1tsp. vanilla and 6oz No Yolk egg noodles. A nice breakfast dish and a sneaky wayto get in more veggies.  -  05 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My family & I loved this. I had a fresh butternut squash, so I baked it and measured the ounces for the recipe. It was delicious hot, and as a cold leftover as well.  -  26 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
